Five-star point guard Nico Mannion named his Top 10 on Monday, and the Arizona Wildcats made the cut.

Joining them are the Duke Blue Devils, Kansas Jayhawks, Oregon Ducks, Villanova Wildcats, UCLA Bruins, USC Trojans, Utah Utes, Marquette Golden Eagles, and Vanderbilt Commodores.

While Mannion did not list any order of preference, 92 percent of Crystal Ball predictions believe he will pick Arizona.

The 6-foot-3 point guard took an unofficial visit to Arizona last week. Mannion averaged 23.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 2.0 steals at Phoenix’s Pinnacle High School this season.

He is the No. 23 player in the 2020 class, but he is expected to reclassify to 2019, meaning he would begin his college career in 2019-20.

Mannion is currently training with the Italian men’s national team and hopes to play in the 2020 Olympics.
