Basketball recruiting



Arizona got another big basketball win Thursday when it received word from 6-foot-7, 200-pound junior college forward Tremayne Johnson he plans to play for the Wildcats next year.

Johnson, who confirmed his commitment to UA while watching the Wildcats on television Thursday night, is enrolled at Los Angeles Southwest Community College. He is redshirting this season and will have three years of eligibility remaining at UA.

Last year, as a freshman at Southwest CC, Johnson averaged nine points and five rebounds per game. Johnson graduated from Rancho Dominguez (Calif.) Artesia High School in 2007.


Ex-Cat Cecil named Titans’ defensive coordinator

The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As a player, former Arizona Wildcat and NFL star Chuck Cecil was known for his physical, aggressive style.

After being named the Tennessee Titans’ defensive coordinator Thursday, will the Titans take on the personality he played with?

“I hope not. I don’t think they can afford it nowadays,” chuckled Cecil, who was elevated from secondary coach to replace former defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who was hired as the Detroit Lions’ new coach.

Cecil has been with the Titans the past eight seasons. He took over coaching the secondary the past two seasons and had three players in the Pro Bowl: cornerback Cortland Finnegan and safeties Chris Hope and Michael Griffin.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he was second-guessed when Buddy Ryan promoted him to defensive coordinator back in Philadelphia with three years as an assistant. “Chuck’s got a lot more experience than any of us,” Fisher said.
