Elliott Pitts likely will sign his letter-of-intent for Arizona tonight at De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif.

De La Salle coach Frank Allocco said this morning that Pitts will probably sign his letter at a parent meeting tonight, having committed to Arizona shortly after the July evaluation period and remaining steady on his commitment since then.

“He’s doing great,” Allocco said. “Elliott’s a great kid and a great leader. He was just really wowed by Arizona. He went out there, loved the team and loved Sean Miller and thought it was a great place to continue his career.”

While Pitts is projected as a shooting guard in college, Allocco says he uses the versatile Pitts all over the court in De La Salle’s four-out offense.

“He can guard, pass, shoot,” Allocco said. “The biggest improvement is in his shooting. He’s a very, very good shooter and that’s what we’ve challenged him on. He’s also a great driver and he does a lot of things that make us better.”

UA's other committed 2012 player, Rondae Jefferson, has said via Twitter that he plans to sign Thursday.


Solomon Hill told USA Today Sports that he suggests Shabazz Muhammad should think about leaving college if he isn't cleared by December. (thanks Fern Dog for the link).


Kyle Anderson wore a "Free Shabazz" T-shirt, and UCLA could have used Muhammad while barely beating UC Irvine.
