When Aaron Gordon announced on April 2 he was coming to Arizona, that instantly took away potential minutes from guys such as Angelo Chol and Matt Korcheck for next season.

And even now that Grant Jerrett is gone, the frontcourt is still looking pretty crowded.

So it's not clear if Chol might consider redshirting or transferring as a junior next season. His high school coach and mentor, Ollie Goulston, said today that Chol is just focusing on finishing up his spring schoolwork.

"I know (redshirting) was one of the plans that was discussed," Goulston said. "I just don't know how it's going to play out. He's going through the process of what he wants to do. He's happy at Arizona but he certainly wants to play more."

If Chol were to redshirt, that would give the Wildcats extra protection in case several players left early following next season. He has two years of eligibility left.


One of the names on Jeff Goodman's annual transfer list that has been popping up in connection with Arizona's two scholarship vacancies for 2013-14 is forward Josh Davis, who is leaving Tulane.

A Pittsburgh-focused website (which was in turn quoted by this Illinois-focused website) quoted Davis' high school coach as saying Sean Miller is the latest to make a push for Davis. 

There's also been speculation about UNLV's Mike Moser, but nothing concrete. While Moser would make an interesting full-circle story, having committed to UA before leaving when Lute Olson retired, he's planning visits to Washington, Oregon and Gonzaga.

Davis and Moser are expected to graduate and thus be eligible immediately under the "Rent-A-Grad" program. So is former Memphis forward Tarik Black, who may be a target at Ole Miss, among others...


BTW, "Cheeks" Lyons has a write-up posted on the website of agent Brian Dyke, who is also expected to sign Jerrett.


C.J. Wilcox is staying at Washington.
