The Arizona Wildcats will have a couple of transfer candidates coming to Tucson next weekend.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, both Pitt grad transfer Cameron Johnson and Duke transfer Chase Jeter will be visiting Arizona together, and despite what this actual tweet says, it appears to be happening next weekend.

Jeter is currently on a visit to Gonzaga according to Evan Daniels, and will then visit Tucson next weekend.

The two of them are in slightly different situations, but could play together in 2018-19 thanks to Johnson’s unique status. Even though he is a grad transfer, he’ll have two years of eligibility left, and he’ll be able to play immediately.
Jeter will have to sit next year, and then have two years of eligibility remaining after that. He has already visited Cal and San Diego State, and appears to be set on playing somewhere out west.

Jeter went to high school at Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, so moving closer to home certainly makes sense with that situation.
If Arizona is able to land both of these players, it will help next year and certainly in 2018. Earlier in the week, we went over some of the gaps that the Wildcats will be dealing with in two years, but adding two experienced guys like Johnson and Jeter will solve a lot of that.
