Center Stephen Zimmerman has saved the best for last, or so the Arizona Wildcats and Sean Miller hope. The 2015 center who is ranked in the top-10 by most recruiting services will visit Tucson on Nov. 7, according to

The 7-foot big man will visit North Carolina on Oct. 3, head to Kansas and Kentucky in the next two weeks and then hit UCLA on Oct. 24. The Wildcats will be the last visit, which might be a good or a bad thing, depending how the other visits go.

As far as a commitment date, Zimmerman recently told, "Just whenever I feel comfortable. If I feel really comfortable with a school tomorrow, I'll commit."

Zimmerman will miss the Red-Blue game set for Oct. 18 but might hang around for Arizona to open up the season with an exhibition game on Nov. 9 against Cal Poly Pomona -- that's assuming he isn't blown away by any one of his other suitors. Zimmerman is another Oakland Solders player being targeted by Arizona, and is also considering Indiana and UNLV, though he won't take official visits to those schools.

Most recently, Zimmerman closed out his AAU career in Vegas, where Arizona assistant Damon Stoudamire watched him impress against talented big man Skal Labissiere, according to CBS Sports.

It's unclear where Arizona stands at this point, because Zimmerman doesn't even know. That said, 247Sports' Crystal Ball projection has the Wildcats leading for the multi-talented big man with his hometown UNLV Runnin' Rebels making up a bit of ground over the last three months.
