From Eric Bossi at Rivals
When fans look at their future recruiting efforts, especially at places such as Arizona where they've been landing lots of talent, they sometimes overlook the guys ranked a little lower. Odds are, Wildcats fans aren't going to be making that mistake with Elliott Pitts. At least they shouldn't be.
Ranked No. 120 in the class of 2013, Pitts is a solid 6-foot-5 shooting guard who signed with 'Zona during the fall. It may not happen right away and the contribution may be minimal early, but before Pitts finishes his time in Tucson we're betting that he becomes a valuable piece for Sean Miller and his staff.
First of all, Pitts will enter college as a fundamentally sound and smart player who understands how to play in a system thanks to the coaching he's received at Concord (Calif.) DeLaSalle from Frank Alloco. Not only is Pitts well-coached, he plays hard, has good athleticism and does a nice job of blending outside shooting with skills -- particularly passing -- off the dribble. He can play the two, he can play the three and in a pinch he can help out with some ball-handling duties because he's not prone to making mistakes.
We aren't yet sure where Pitts finishes in the final rankings, but regardless of where he ends up we do expect that he'll find his way onto the floor and be a valuable contributor at Arizona
