Red-Blue week always seems to be the most important from a recruiting standpoint for the Arizona Wildcats. Jarred Vanderbilt, 2017’s 20th-ranked player overall, does not have official visits set up, but says Arizona is likely getting one at some point, and that Sean Miller has been recruiting him the hardest of the nine schools on his final list:

He’s really kept in contact with me for the last couple years. He’s came down to visit a lot and he’s kept in contact with my parents as well so I’d probably say he’s the main one.”

Vanderbilt also says in that article that having DeAndre Ayton already committed is a big selling point for a small forward/wing player like himself

Editor’s note: I’ll be largely MIA from Tuesday morning until Thursday night as I’ll be attending my grandfather’s funeral in California. We have tons of stuff lined up for the next few days for your reading pleasure anyways, and we will still be on top of big news that might drop in the coming days. Felt it was fair to disclose that I won’t be around
