Arizona Wildcats basketball keeps on looking for elite talent, but also seem willing to take on the good players as well. Sean Miller isn't wasting anytime handing out the 2013 offers locally. Torren Jones is one of his first targets; Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports reports that the Chandler, Arizona product who plays his high school ball in Basha received offers from Arizona and Colorado. Jones says Arizona sticks out along with UCLA, USC, Kansas and Iowa State. He's ranked as the 69th best recruit among the top 100 by Rivals and is ranked as the 29th best power forward in his class by ESPN.
Jones isn't quite the specimen that Brandon Ashley or Aaron Gordon currently are, but he definitely is a presence with plenty of upside. When more polished players move on after one or two years, Jones could be the type of guy who sticks around three or four. He provides a Division I team with quality depth in big men, something many Pac-12 teams generally struggle with as attrition runs deep.
