Arizona isn't alone in the Pac-10 in pushing the limit. UCLA, which is already at the scholarship maximum on paper for 2011-12, is hosting former UA target Quinn Cook of Washington, D.C., this weekend, knowing that underclassmen Tyler Honeycutt and Malcolm Lee could leave for pro basketball. "It's very difficult to compare today's climate in college basketball to anything in the past because every program, even the most elite, experience more unexpected turnover than they ever have before," Miller said. "That can come in the form of young people leaving early to make money, whether it be in Europe or in the NBA, or young people who just want a bigger opportunity and are at a place where they don't have the opportunity they once thought they did."

Hello world! This is Quinn Cook! Starting point guard for Oak Hill Academy! This is my first entry for my SLAM blog. I just wanted to share with you guys my experiences this summer. The first event I went to was the Pangos All-American Camp! It was in Los Angeles, California. Some of the top players in the country were there like Quincy Miller, Brad Beal, LeBryan Nash, etc. A lot of great players in the NBA went to the same camp, so I was honored to be there. SLAM 10/4
It will be Georgia Tech vs. Georgia for one of the nation’s top 100 college basketball prospects. Milton High’s Julian Royal will announce between the two archrivals on Oct. 14 at his school. We’re going to say a few good things about Julian, and then allow him announce to the world if it’s going to be Georgia or Georgia Tech,” Milton coach David Boyd. The 6-foot-9 power forward has already taken recruiting trips to both Georgia Tech and Georgia. AJC 10/6
The Huskies are also in the running to land a pair of four-star forwards, San Diego's Angelo Chol and Norvel Pelle of Los Angeles. Chol has North Carolina, Arizona, Kansas and Alabama on his list, while Pelle is considering many schools including UCLA, Arizona, Oregon, Kansas, Syracuse, UTEP and St. John's, according to the major recruiting websites. Most recruiting analysts believe Chol and Pelle will wait until the spring before announcing their college choice and signing a national letter of intent. Seattle Times 10/7
