Arizona Wildcats contact Utah Valley grad transfer Isaiah White

Arizona Wildcats guard Brandon Randolph (5) jumps for the basket as he's defended by Utah Valley Wolverines guard Jake Toolson (2) and Utah Valley Wolverines guard Isaiah White (0) in the first half during a game at McKale Center on Dec. 6, 2018.

Arizona has started pursuing grad transfer forward Isaiah White of Utah Valley, according to a tweet from his former club coach, Dinos Trigonis.

The Wolverines' leading scorer last season (14.5 points), White won't have to be told what the playing experience is like at McKale Center since he's already been a part of it.

With White starting and playing 24 minutes on Dec. 6, 2018, Utah Valley put a scare in the Wildcats by leading 41-29 at halftime before Arizona won 80-69.  White had five points and four rebounds, though he missed all three 3-pointers he took in that game.

White still isn't a big 3-point threat, shooting just 22.4% from beyond the arc last season, but he can get to the basket and the free-throw line. He took a team-high 6.5 average free throws per game and hit them at a 72.3% rate, while shooting 41.8% overall.

A Southern Californian who played for the Belmont Shore club team and Damien High School, White attended Salt Lake Community College before spending two seasons at Utah Valley. He recently entered the transfer portal.

Arizona has also has also contacted another player who visited McKale Center last season, Long Beach State transfer Joshua Morgan, a 6-11 freshman center from Sacramento.

Morgan had 10 points and five rebounds while making 4 of 5 shots in the Wildcats' 104-67 trouncing of the Beach on Nov. 24.

Earlier in life, Dalen Terry had an idea about his future (we can tell him about that little typo later).

Still no telling where UA recruiting target and Zeke Nnaji's former teammate, Kerwin Walton, is headed.
