Arizona adds 7-footer Koloko to 2019 class
Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller has added a 7-footer to his 2019 recruiting class.
Christian Koloko, a center from Cameroon who moved to California last fall, has committed to Arizona he announced Sunday. He ranks as the No. 161 prospect in the nation in the 247Sports Composite. The website's own ratings have him at No. 81 overall.
He played last season at Birmingham High in Van Nuys, Calif., where he was a teammate of current Arizona freshman guard Devonaire Doutrive. Koloko will play as a senior at Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth, Calif.
Koloko joins five-star point guard Nico Mannion in the 2019 class.
Koloko played this summer on the AAU circuit for the Oakland Soldiers, which had been a stronghold for Miller. Other Arizona players under Miller to play for the Soldiers are Nick Johnson, Josiah Turner, Aaron Gordon, Brandon Ashley and Stanley Johnson.
