Bachman claims Pac-10 leader

Arizona has taken the lead for Addison Bachman but the Glendora (Calif.) Citrus C.C. center isn't prepared to commit yet because other major programs are still showing lots of interest.
The Wildcats are the favorite, though, and Bachman has an official visit scheduled for the first weekend in December to see the school.
"I'm highly interested in Arizona," Bachman said. "Right now they have the lead, that's who I'm focused on. I don't know what else is going to happen, until I get other Pac-10 schools, I kind of have a decision to make.
"The program is up-and-coming, they're losing their center so I'm hoping to come right in and be that guy. I have a good chance of being that guy.
"They're in the Pac-10 and it's close to home. It's far enough to get away but still close enough. My dad lives out in New Mexico so everything is pointing there right now. I don't know though because a lot could change in a couple weeks."
Bachman, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound prospect, is still hearing from Southern Cal - he has taken an unofficial visit there - and three new programs - Washington, Memphis and Towson - have started to get more involved.
The coaching staff at Memphis has told Bachman they'd like to get him on campus as soon as possible.
Washington's coaches said they plan to finish out their season and then go straight into recruiting and that Bachman is a target. Towson is expected to come out to California soon.
Bachman has already taken an official visit to Houston and with the new teams involved is hesitant to say too much about Arizona until he figures out exactly where he stands with each school. But the Wildcats are currently the team to beat and he's going to be visiting Tucson in a couple weeks.
"With the new schools, we talked about (visits) but nothing is official yet so I'm assuming at the start of December I'll probably have the rest of my visits set up," Bachman said.
