If Sean Miller had left, this Arizona recruit would have, too

Arizona Wildcats basketball signee Sidiki Johnson says that if coach Sean Miller had gone to Maryland, he would have tried to follow.

“Sean Miller, wherever he had went, I would have stayed with him,” Johnson told Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.com.

“He’s a great coach. Wherever he was going, I would probably just have went with him.”

Miller stayed and an Arizona crisis was averted, as the Wildcats kept a stellar four-man recruiting class intact. UA’s recruiting class is ranked fourth in the nation by Rivals.com.

Zagoria has the story of how Sidiki Johnson convinced fellow UA signee Nick Johnson (no relation) to play with him on an AAU team that is competing in the iS8/Nike Spring Classic in New York. Lots of good quotes and info at the link.
