The Arizona basketball team is expected to add one more player to a four-man 2015 recruiting class, and the biggest prospect left on the board, Ivan Rabb, has kept them in the running. Rabb listed the Wildcats on Friday has he cut his down list to five potential college destinations, according to ESPN.

Rabb is listed by ESPN as the fifth-best player in the 2015 class. The Oakland Soldiers forward and Bishop O'Dowd High School player has kept local team Cal in the running as well as UCLA. Kansas and Kentucky are not surprisingly in the mix, though Duke, Georgetown and Louisville were teams that are now out of the picture.

The athletic 6'10 forward is considered one of the most active and athletic players in his class and has a fine feel for the game. While he could use to added weight to become a viable NBA power forward, that hasn't kept him out of the college recruiting rankings at all.

Arizona already has Ray Smith, Allonzo Trier, Justin Simon and Chance Comanche committed to next year's class. Sean Miller could also be chasing after big men Stephen Zimmerman and Caleb Swanigan, both centers who are ranked by ESPN in the top-10 of the class but behind Rabb.
