A couple of recruiting services are reporting 2012 recruit Gabe York gave a verbal commitment to Arizona.
He’s considered one of the top high school shooting guards on the West Coast and last month he narrowed his list to 10 schools.
Last week, York reportedly eliminated Louisville and gave the boot to Notre Dame.
On Sunday, York chose Arizona over Washington and Marquette.
The 6-foot-1 guard from Orange, Calif. is considered a four-star 2012 recruit by ESPN, Scout.com and Rivals.com.
Arizona also has a commitment from Grant Jerrett, a four-star center from La Verne, Calif.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— When Brandon Ashley, the California Bay Area’s top 2012 basketball recruit, trims his list next week, Adam Zagoria said Arizona and Oregon will make the cut. Washington has reportedly offered a scholarship to Ashley, a 6-8 forward from Oakland, who is rated a five-star prospect by Scout.com.
— Kareem Canty, a 2012 point guard from Brooklyn, NY, is drawing interest from Washington along with many other schools. If he ends up at South Kent prep school in Connecticut in the fall, then the Huskies may have a good chance at landing him because UW assistant Raphael Chillious is the former head coach at South Kent.
— ESPN ranked 2013 recruit Jabari Parker as one of the standout performers on the final day of the LeBron James Skills Academy. Parker has UW on his list.

Arizona State incoming freshman Jahii Carson, the only high school player on the team, is averaging 2.3 points and 7.5 minutes per game, both team lows. Stanford sophomore Anthony Brown is averaging 3.3 points and has not played in three of the seven games.
— SI.com’s Luke Winn’s blames the USA’s poor performance on elite players such as UCLA sophomore Joshua Smith who declined to play in the tournament.
