The Arizona Wildcats continue to offer 2019 recruits.

This time it’s four-star prospects Kai Jones and Patrick Williams, per Twitter.

Jones is a 6-foot-10, 205-pound center from Orlando Christian Prep. He is the No. 85 prospect in the the 2019, per 247Sports composite rankings.

Jones has offers from Texas, Baylor, Georgetown, Illinois, Vanderbilt and several other schools. His primary recruiter is Justin Gainey, per 247Sports.

Like Deandre Ayton, Jones hails from the Bahamas.

Here is what Evan Daniels of 247Sports wrote about him:

Just 17-years old, Jones finished up his senior season and played in the spring with Team Breakdown, where the 6-foot-11, long and rangy post player showed energy, mobility, athleticism and potential as a rim protector. Last week at the NBA Global Academy, Jones apparently further hit his stride, as a number of NBA scouts reached out to 247Sports to express how well Jones performed on a big stage against impressive competition.

Jones is planning to go to prep school for a year at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.

Williams is a 6-foot-6 forward from Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the No. 57 player in the 2019 class. Williams has offers from several major-conference schools, including Louisville, Ohio State, Virginia, Texas A&M, and Tennessee.

Williams is described by the Charlotte Observer as a forward “who can stretch a defense with (his) shooting ability,”

Arizona offered four-star forwards Drew Timme and Jaelyn Withers earlier in the week. Among the four recruits mentioned, Williams is the highest-ranked at No. 57.

While the Wildcats have offered some of the elite players in the 2019 class — like five-star prospects Cassius Stanley, Scottie Lewis, Bryan Antoine, and Josh Green — it seems like they are targeting lower-ranked prospects in this recruiting cycle than usual.

Arizona is still searching for its first 2019 commit.
