Dec 21 2002: Making Strides - by wieditor on November 20th, 2018

After a surprising run to the NCAA Tournament last season, Arizona is on its way back to prominence with the commitment of five-star center Paul Dickson.

The Wildcats are currently leading the recruiting rankings but expect to fall into the teens with just one scholarship remaining. This class along with the nation's ninth best group in 2001 significantly upgrade a roster with poor upperclassmen talent.

Hopes are that point guard Samuel Walton is the final piece to the 2002 class. The top 50 prospect possesses a very diverse set of skills, which will play nicely behind disappointing senior-to-be Rashad Horton.

Needs going forward include a top-flight shooting guard and depth on the wing. Promising freshman J.T. Pierre will move to power forward next year to allow for the arrival of Dickson. Cam Lee will be a solid first big man off the bench and Robert Humphries is a better than average big man as well. However, shooting guard and small forward will be huge question marks in 2003.
