Arizona has added a fourth player to its still-evolving 2009 recruiting class, with guard Lamont "Momo" Jones of New York saying today he has committed to the Wildcats.

Jones, who visited both Florida and Arizona after he was released from his USC letter-of-intent in the wake of coach Tim Floyd's resignation, said he was impressed with his visit to Tucson and new UA coach Sean Miller.

"Sean Miller is a great coach," Jones said. "I watched him at Xavier and sat down with him and listened to him talk, and we believe this is the best place for us."

Jones, a Top 75 combo guard who spent last season at Virginia's Oak Hill Academy, is from the Bronx. He is a close friend of incoming UA freshman Kevin Parrom as well as the godson of UA assistant coach Book Richardson, who was a childhood friend of Jones' now-deceased father.

The Wildcats could also add a fifth player, California wing Derrick Williams, another ex-USC commit who says he will visit UA this weekend. Williams was scheduled to visit Memphis today.
