One of the Arizona Wildcats’ top recruiting targets will be on campus Wednesday.

That’s when five-star wing Josh Green will be taking an unofficial visit to the UA, according to West Coast Elite on Twitter.

The 6-foot-6 Green is the No. 17 player in the 2019 class, per 247Sports. While Green attends IMG Academy in Florida, he is originally from Australia and moved to the Phoenix area when he was in eighth grade.

Green has received interest from several powerhouse schools, but he told 247Sports’ Evan Daniels recently that Arizona, Kansas, UCLA, and Virginia are prioritizing him the most.

Green has visited Arizona at least three times before. He took unofficial visits to the UA in October, June, and February of 2017, per 247Sports.

Green plays on the same club team, Earl Watson Elite, as UA target Nico Mannion.

Mannion is a 2020 five-star recruit, but the point guard is expected to reclassify to 2019, so landing him and Green is a real possibility for the Wildcats, whose 2019 class is barren.
