Arizona’s star-studded freshman class includes one of the top international prospects in Aussie Josh Green, and it looks like Sean Miller and his staff are once again trying to land a player from that part of the world.

Mojave King, a 6-foot-4 wing from New Zealand who plays for the Global Academy in Australia, will be taking an official visit to Arizona in October according to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.

King has garnered a lot of hype since he averaged 16 points and made 51 percent of his 3-pointers during the NBA Global Academy Championships in Atlanta in July.

“The next step for me is to go to college and then hopefully to the NBA,” King told Weingarten for “(I’m) a shooter but I like playing in transition and trying to get something on the rim.”

Arizona hasn’t officially offered King a scholarship yet but that figures to be the next step. So far the Wildcats have scholarship offers out to 11 prospects from the 2021 class, including five 5-star players such as combo guard Devin Askew.
