Jason King on the PAC-12 top basketball newcomers

Jason King in his "Top newcomers in PAC-12 basketball" feature lists three Nor Cal talents: 
 Josiah Turner, Arizona, PG – The addition of Turner – who some believe is the top point guard prospect in the country – will make the loss of All-American forward Derrick Williams a little easier to absorb. Don’t be surprised if the 6-foot-3 Turner is the best player on Arizona’s team next season. He’s a big-time scorer, although he has a tendency to force things that aren’t there.
Jabari Brown, Oregon, SG – Dana Altman’s most high-profile signee to date is regarded as one of the best long-range shooters in the Class of 2011. But he’s also good at getting to the basket. When he’s hot Brown has the capability to take over a game. The 6-foot-3 Brown needs to continue to improve his rebounding and overall consistency.
De’End Parker, UCLA, G – A 6-foot-5 combo guard from City College of San Francisco, Parker originally committed to Cal before switching to UCLA. He played both guard positions in junior college, where he averaged 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists as a sophomore. The departures of Tyler Honeycutt and Malcolm Lee could lead to some quick playing time for Parker.
