Ben Howland has offered 2012 PG Amedeo Della Valle, a 4-star (Scout) / 3-star (Rivals) 6-6 guard from Findlay Prep. He already has Pac-12 offers from Cal, Arizona, and Utah, as well as offers from UConn, St. Mary's, and Creighton.
Howland definitely needs another PG, and definitely one for the 2012 class. But I'm a little concerned with how this reflects on the Parker & Shabazz recruitment. I assumed Howland would have four scholies (Zeek, Anderson, K. Jones, and Nelson) at his disposal. Does this mean he anticipates a Smith departure, or that he won't land one of Parker/Shabazz?
