How former Arizona Wildcats are doing in Major League Baseball

How former Arizona Wildcats are doing in Major League Baseball

While the Arizona Wildcats haven’t had much success the last two seasons, failing to make the NCAA tournament both times, the same can’t be said for the program’s alumni in pro baseball. Dozens of ex-Wildcats have made it to the majors, helping to justify Arizona’s use of #MLBTrainingGround on Twitter. So far during the 2019 season there have been eight former UA players who have spent time in the big leagues, two of which have been in the majors for more than a decade. No new Wildcats have made their MLB debut this season, but a couple appear close and could get that call up before...

Zeke Nnaji a finalist for the 2019 USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Cup team

Arizona Wildcats signee Zeke Nnaji is one of 18 finalists for the 2019 USA Basketball Men’s Under-19 World Cup Team. Roster cuts were made Tuesday that narrowed the talent pool from 31 players to 18 after five practice sessions over the past three days. The finalists will continue to train twice a day in Colorado Springs, and the roster will be trimmed to 12 by the time the team departs for Greece on June 24. The World Cup takes place June 29-July 7. Of the 18 finalists, five completed their first collegiate season in 2018-19, five are from the high school class of 2019 and eight are from...

Oh hey there, Arizona Desert Swarm

It only makes sense that when starting something new, you would introduce yourself to everyone. With that in mind, hello AZ Desert Swarm. I’m Adam Green, and I’m excited to be here. Not to sound too full of myself, but I imagine it’s possible some of you know me. And, if not that, are at least vaguely familiar with my work. I have spent time with a couple of different media organizations in the Phoenix area. At one of them, among other things, I co-hosted a podcast dedicated to the Arizona Wildcats. Since leaving that job, I have been fortunate enough to have a role co-hosting...

Arizona signee Zeke Nnaji not concerned about possible sanctions

Arizona signee Zeke Nnaji not concerned about possible sanctions

Sometime next month the NCAA is expected to issue sanctions to at least six schools that committed Level I violations. Level I violations are considered the most serious, so those sanctions could range from a postseason ban to loss of scholarships to show-cause penalties. The Arizona Wildcats, who are under NCAA investigation and saw former assistant coach Book Richardson sentenced to three months in prison for accepting bribes, are thought to be one of the schools in danger of having the hammer dropped on them. Incoming four-star recruit Zeke Nnaji isn’t worried about it. “Not at...

Arizona’s Josh Green named fourth-most important player in Pac-12

Arizona’s Josh Green named fourth-most important player in Pac-12

Even more important than Nico Mannion, apparently Nico Mannion is the highest-ranked freshman the Arizona Wildcats are bringing in this season, but fellow five-star recruit and former AAU teammate Josh Green is the most important. At least that’s what NCAA.com’s Andy Katz thinks. Katz listed Green as the fourth-most important player in the Pac-12 this season, only behind Colorado guard McKinley Wright IV, Washington freshman Isaiah Stewart, and Arizona State guard Remy Martin. Here’s why: The Wildcats have a slew of hype coming into this season. And a lot of it rests with point guard...

Expert analyzes new Arizona commit Jordan Brown

What should Wildcats fans expect from the Nevada transfer? The Arizona Wildcats rounded out their roster by adding Nevada transfer Jordan Brown. The 6-foot-11 forward was a five-star recruit and McDonald’s All-American coming out of high school, but hardly played for the Wolf Pack, averaging 3.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 10.1 minutes per game. Last week, we broke down what Brown brings to the Wildcats, but we wanted even more insight on the big man, so we caught up with Mountain West Wire’s Eli Boettger. Here’s our Q&A with Eli. Why didn’t Brown play much at...

Arizona adding Connecticut high school football coach as analyst

The Arizona Wildcats had to make two additions to their coaching staff during the winter, and early indications are they hit a home run on the hires of both running backs coach DeMarco Murray and offensive line coach Kyle DeVan. Only time will tell if their latest new staff member turns out to be just as valuable. Arizona is bringing on John Marinelli as an offensive analyst, according to his Twitter account. Marinelli had spent the past four years as head coach of Greenwich High School in Connecticut, where he amassed a 36-10 record including 25-1 over the last two seasons as well as a...
