Blue-chip forward picks Arizona over UW

TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona coach Sean Miller has added to what’s shaping up as another stellar recruiting class, landing power forward Aaron Gordon.

Gordon announced Tuesday that he would play for the Wildcats after considering Kentucky, Washington and Oregon.

A 6-foot-8 forward, Gordon was one of the nation’s top 2013 recruits after averaging 21.6 points, 15.7 rebounds and 3.3 blocked shots for Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif.

Miller signed two of the nation’s top prospects during the early signing period, landing small forward Rondae Jefferson of Chest, Pa., and shooting guard Ellis Pitts of Concord, Calif.

Miller’s previous class included three of the top incoming big men: Brandon Ashley, Grant Jarrett and Kaleb Tarczewski.
