Las Vegas, NV (Future150) -- Arizona offers Markus Howard.  In an effort to be as blunt as possible...Why is Arizona, a top five program nationally rushing to offer a 5'11" guard?

Can't it wait?  Howard will not be able to sign with a college for 17 months. 

The answer is that Howard's recruitment has taken off in the last three weeks and if Arizona didn't offer now they would be caught chasing the pack like a overly casual Tour De France rider.  The time to go is now. 

Vegas

Perhaps no individual is more responsible for Las Vegas' reputation as a basketball training hub than Coach Mike Peck.  Peck brought along professional starters in Tristan Thompson, Avery Bradley, and Cory Joseph at Findlay Prep.  Oh, they all played on the same team.

Coach Peck has coached at all levels of the sport and currently works with the exceptional Las Vegas Prospects (11-6), of which Howard is a key part. 

"He has made some huge progress from my standpoint," said Coach Peck.  "I talked to Markus about this and his folks.  The transition for him was going to be #1 good for him and #2 a challenge for him."
