Abdul Gaddy took an official visit to Arizona this weekend and apparently decided it was the place for him. Again.
“He just gave his verbal commitment and we’re really excited about it,” Abdul Gaddy, Sr. told GOAZCATS.com. “It was made this afternoon in the last hour. He came back from his official visit yesterday and he told me, ‘dad, I really think Arizona is the right place for me.'”

Former Bellarmine Prep standout Avery Bradley’s recruiting visit to Texas last weekend was canceled because of Hurricane Ike. Bradley has scheduled a new visit for Sept. 26-27, according to the newstribune.com.
