Arizona recruit Nico Mannion sports UA-themed kicks
University of Arizona basketball top recruit Nico Mannion is all in for next season.
The five-star point guard wore custom-made Steph Curry sneakers ahead of his game for Pinnacle High School.
The white Currys feature Wilbur (or Wilma) Wildcat, Arizona’s desert and the red, white and blue ‘A’ near the heel of the shoe.
He probably won’t be wearing those next season for Sean Miller’s team, since Arizona is sponsored by Nike, but still nice.
Mannion leads a No. 1 recruiting class in 2019 for Arizona. Following him is five-star forward Josh Green, four-star shooting guard Terry Armstrong and three-star center Christian Koloko.
The Scottsdale product is ranked No. 12 in ESPN’s Top 100, behind Green who is at No. 9.
