Four-star forward Jaelyn Withers has trimmed his list of schools to five, and the Arizona Wildcats made the cut along with the Louisville Cardinals, Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators, and Texas A&M Aggies, he announced Friday on Twitter.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound Withers is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 86 player in the 2019 class and 21st-best power forward.

Withers hails from Huntersville, North Carolina. All 13 Crystal Ball predictions believe he is Louisville bound.

Withers said earlier in the month that he is considering visiting Arizona in September.

“Everything about them is great,” Withers told’s Dan McDonald. “I like the way coach (Sean) Miller coaches. He has his system, but it spreads the ball around. It’s not like it stays in one person’s hands.”

The Wildcats are also finalists for five-star forwards Josh Green and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, four-star guard Boogie Ellis, five-star point guard Nico Mannion and several other recruits. (Check out our recruiting section for more on that.)
