Before the spring signing period started in April, UA coach Sean Miller entertained Rivals.com 5-star recruits from New York City and Baltimore on official visits to the Tucson campus.
Those two players — Josh Selby, a point guard from Baltimore, and Doron Lamb, a combo guard from New York — went elsewhere.
Meanwhile, two players from Tucson who play the same positions — point guard Terrell Stoglin of Santa Rita and off-guard Mike Perez of Pueblo — are headed to Maryland and New York to play Division I college basketball. Stoglin will play for the Terrapins and Perez with St. John’s, which offered him a scholarship after coach Steve Lavin saw him play Monday night in the Full Court Press All-West Camp in Los Angeles.
Funny how things work out.
Stoglin and Perez are not recruiting losses for Miller, however. If that was the case, this would be cause for alarm with the program.
