Between Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski, Arizona recruits dominate Hoophall Classic

The 2012 Arizona Wildcats' recruiting class has all the hype, and most of the future UA players were on display this past weekend at the prominent Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. Brandon Ashley, Kaleb Tarczewski, Grant Jerrett and 2013 guard commit Eric Cooper Jr. were all in attendance. So too was No. 1 overall recruit Shabazz Muhammad, who still lists Arizona among his favorites.

MassLive.com was in attendance and covered all the angles of the future of Arizona basketball. Whether it was an update on Muhammad's favorites (it's still a reach to say Arizona is really in there, but not being eliminated is always good), Ashley and Findlay Prep nabbing a huge win against No. 1-ranked Simeon, or highlights of Tarc going at it, you should probably take a peek at the future Wildcats.

I know, I know. After I warn you all to simmer down about next season and carefully pay any and all attention to how the rest of this year goes -- no matter how painful -- that doesn't mean I think next year won't be a completely different story. There's something to be said for freshmen classes, especially after this year's crop has been somewhat disappointing between suspensions of Josiah Turner and Sidiki Johnson's bounce from Arizona.

But based on what I know about next year's players, Sean Miller's club won't be going through as much drama. When you toss in the amount of talent in 2012 and add it to the veteran core of Solomon Hill, Kevin Parrom, then consider the growth of guys like Johnson and Turner, it's hard not to froth at the mouth.
