Kyle Fogg is a success story in the class of 2008. The 6-foot-3 guard from Brea Olinda (Calif.) High School didn't have a Division I scholarship as late as December.
Fogg committed to Arizona on Monday night, according to his AAU coach Dinos Trigonis.
"He's a true success story," Trigonis said. "It's interesting because his recruitment really started to pick up after the spring period. And he was really good in the spring period."
Fogg definitely was. He put on a scoring show in March with Trigonis' Belmont Shore club in Las Vegas and finished April on a high note, scoring at will against several major teams and players.
New Arizona assistant coach Mike Dunlap jumped on Fogg shortly after the Arizona Cactus Classic, which was held on Arizona's campus, and invited the three-star guard back to Tucson for an official visit this past weekend. Fogg, Trigonis says, saw an opportunity to play right away.
"I think he had a feeling [about committing to them] going into the visit and then when he saw that there was an opportunity to play right away because of the lack of depth at the guard, he was ready to commit right away," Trigonis said. "There is a demand for a guard like him."
Trigonis said Fogg fits into Arizona's up-tempo style perfectly.
"They play the style that he's used to," Trigonis said. "He should be able to play in it really well."
Fogg averaged nearly 25 points a game as a senior. He also grabbed 8.6 rebounds and handed out 4.4 assists a game in his final year of high school.
