Potential McDonald's All-American Josiah Turner committed to Arizona during a visit to campus this weekend, recruiting analysts Dave Telep and Evan Daniels reported Sunday.

"I knew that they would be in my top three [on a list of potential college destinations], but when [I] came on this visit it was crazy,” Turner told "I could have [gone anywhere] on the East Coast, but now my family can come to my games. I just really wanted to be a part of the tradition." has Turner ranked 30th in the Class of 2011.

The 6-foot-3 point guard is from Sacramento.

He reportedly chose the Wildcats over UCLA and Kansas.
