Arizona basketball signee Gabe York will likely miss at least a few weeks of high school ball after undergoing an appendectomy last weekend.

The news was first reported by Gary Randazzo of WildcatSportsReport.com, one of the partners in the TucsonCitizen.com Sports Network.

York, a 6-foot-1 guard from Orange (Calif.) Lutheran High School, was coming off a big tournament performance last week, leading his team to the championship of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Orange Holiday Classic on Dec. 28.

York, a consensus top 50 recruit, is part of a four-play recruiting class that is ranked No. 1 in the country by all the major recruiting services.

The L.A. Times reported Wednesday night that York could miss several weeks, although WildcatSportsReport.com pegged the timetable as 2 to 3 weeks.
