Arizona coach Sean Miller spent Thursday night with Daniel Bejarano and is now a strong candidate to gain a commitment from the in-state product who this week decommitted from Texas.

“I just want him to be happy wherever he goes," Bejarano's high school coach, Joseph Bustos, told's Jason Hickman. "For whatever reason Texas was no longer the place for him."

Among those reasons is Bejarano's reported desire to stay close to his Phoenix home after his father, Damion Gosa, was shot to death in June. Bejarano had been committed to Texas since last October. He's now considering Arizona and Arizona State but, at this point, seems more interested in the Wildcats.

“His first words when he decommitted was, `Hey, get a hold of coach Sean Miller,'" Bejarano's mentor, Ray Arvizu Jr., told the Arizona Daily Star's Bruce Pascoe. "He’s very excited.” ranks Bejarano No. 28 overall in the Class of 2010.

Arizona considered leader for in-state product

This would be a big-time get for us. It's good to keep the local talent in-state and more specifically with the 'Cats. Some of the greats to grace McKale: Elliot, Bibby, Jefferson, Frye, Bayless...I think Daniel would fit nicely in the long line of Arizonans to have great careers at the U of A.
