The Arizona Wildcats are active on the graduate transfer market. They have already been linked to San Francisco's Mark Tollefsen, Charlotte's Mike Thorne and are now one of the top choices for Drexel's Damion Lee. According to ESPN's recruiting insider Jeff Borzello, Arizona is one of five schools that Damion Lee is considering. The others being Maryland, Gonzaga, Louisville, and Marquette:

Lee will reportedly visit Arizona on April 17th-19th and had this to say about why he's considering becoming an Arizona Wildcat (via Scout.com):
"They have a great coaching staff. They have some good guards that are coming in and that have been there. Just the experience and playing in the PAC-12, which is a free flowing league that is guard heavy. They have an open offense."
Lee has one year of eligibility left and is able to play immediately.
If Lee were to choose Arizona, it's likely that he'd be a starter at the small forward position over Ray Smith (assuming Stanley Johnson declares for the draft). The Wildcats would then have an extremely experienced lineup with at least three seniors, and possibly four if Gabe York were to start over Allonzo Trier.
