Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats still have a few moves to make in the 2016 recruiting class apparently. With the upheaval at UNLV, the 18th-ranked prospect in the 2016 class, Kobi Simmons, has decided to include Arizona in his final three schools

It seems likely that Simmons is headed to Ohio State, but Wildcat fans have hope again
