Arizona got an early start on its 2014 recruiting class Sunday, landing a commitment from five-star point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright. Jackson-Cartwright, who plays at Loyola High in Los Angeles, took an official visit to Tucson over the weekend and decided on Arizona over other finalists UCLA and Gonzaga. The diminutive 5-foot-8, 145-pounder is averaging 14 points, eight assists, five rebounds and two steals a game this season. He is ranked by Scout.com as the sixth-best point guard and the 22nd-best player overall in the 2014 class. While his size likely limits his rankings, Jackson-Cartwright's recruiting profile cites his strengths as "basketball IQ," ability to finish and quickness on defense. Arizona loses senior point guard Mark Lyons after this season but has T.J. McConnell, a transfer from Duquesne, waiting in the wings with two years of eligibility. McConnell was an All-Atlantic 10 player as a sophomore with averages of 11.4 points, 5.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 steals. Jackson-Cartwright is officially the second 2014 commit for the Wildcats, who also have shooting guard Eric Cooper -- who committed three years ago -- as part of the class after Cooper opted for an additional year of high school and a year of prep school while recovering from leg injuries. 2014 recruits cannot sign their National Letters of Intent until at least Nov. 13, which marks the start of the NCAA's early signing period for basketball.
