Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona pursuing UNC Asheville transfer Dylan Smith

Another practice squad guard this year?

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

As Sean Miller looks to fill out the Arizona Wildcats roster for this upcoming season and beyond, his attention has turned to transfer candidates. One of those is freshman guard Dylan Smith from UNC Asheville. Smith tweeted out the list of schools that have contacted him (questionable emoji choices in my opinion), and news came later in the day that he will be visiting Arizona on Tuesday. It's too bad he didn't come to Tucson last week when there were water slides and things on the mall. The transfer candidate has already visited Virginia Tech. Smith was Asheville's leading scorer last year, averaging 13.5 points per contest in his first collegiate season. All the guards please

- Or maybe not all the guards? Hutchinson CC (where Kadeem Allen transferred from) forward Keanu Pinder was on a visit to Arizona on Sunday. He was previously committed to New Mexico
