As Arizona football has its first two-a-days practices on Tuesday, Arizona Wildcats basketball is welcoming several major recruits on campus. According to Rivals, Markelle Fultz was on campus on Monday, and we also know that Jaylen Hands was in Tucson as well, since his dad broke down his visit with Scout ($)

Mitch Lightfoot is also in Tucson. He broke down his top five with Richard Obert, and said of Arizona "Coach (Sean) Miller and his staff, they are uptempo, in your face, and I like that style. I lived in Tuscon for 12 years and UA has a tremendous program." Arizona fans will like his take on ASU and Bobby Hurley as well.

Andrew Jones was also on campus this week
