Monday’s Arizona Wildcats social media reactions

The reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year Nick Johnson, a cornerstone for Sean Miller in his attempt to bring Arizona back to its glory days, turns 22 today.

After watching him in AAU ball in 2013, I could see this coming. If he had a four-year career at Arizona, Stanley Johnson could unseat Sean Elliott as the best Wildcat to wear the uniform. We’ll never know.

Although Arizona is in Las Vegas tomorrow to play UNLV, Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep guard Allonzo Trier, a highly-touted Class of 2015 signee, will not be in attendance. He will be with his mom Marcie in Oklahoma City for Christmas. Family comes first.

Many of these guys stuck with it through some lean and uncertain times from the Mike Stoops to Rich Rodriguez transition.

Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez built a sense of togetherness within the football program starting in his first meeting with his players three years ago.

The odds of something like this happening in a coach’s first three years after taking over a 4-8 team are very remote.

Because you can’t get enough of this …

Arizona’s Class of 2016 commit T.J. Leaf was outstanding in the Tarkanian Classic played last week in Las Vegas. Amazing isn’t it that Arizona will have another T.J. so soon after McConnell?

If you notice in the background another Los Angeles Fairfax High School and Arizona great Chris Mills has his No. 42 retired. Solomon Hill pictured here with some of Fairfax’s players.

Evidently, a lot more Boise State fans are on social media.
