With the early signing period for college basketball starting on Wednesday, two Arizona recruits aren't being quick to pull the trigger on signing their letters of intent. Guard Elliott Pitts and wing Rondae Jefferson are both firmly committed to Sean Miller's Arizona Wildcats.

Bruce Pascoe reports that Pitts will likely sign his letter of intent Wednesday nightat De La Salle High School while the five-star Jefferson is holding off until later this week. According to a number of retweets by Jefferson on Twitter, he apparently has a signing party on Friday.

CBS ranks Arizona signing class at No. 21 for next season. That's both due to size still much being left to be decided this year.

Arizona is still in the thick of the Aaron Gordon recruitment. The explosive power forward still has the Wildcats among a list of elite suitors, though the Washington Huskies and UA appear to be the favorites -- of course, Gordon's rise to the top-5 in most recruiting rankings means the Kentucky Wildcats are making a push for his services as well.

Also on CBS' list of players left is Keither Frazier, a 6-foot-5 wing listed as ESPN's No. 22 overall recruit in the 2013 class.
