The Arizona Wildcats still have some spots to fill on their 2020-21 roster. And while the focus seems to be mostly on adding transfers, there are still some top high school prospects available on the market.
And one of them, 4-star shooting guard Kerwin Walton, has the UA among his final six:

Finalists: Creighton, Arizona, North Carolina, Minnesota, Georgetown and Vanderbilt.
The 6-foot-5, 195-pound Walton is rated by 247 Sports as the No. 97 player in the 2020 recruiting class. He's considered the 17th-best shooting guard in the country and the No. 5 prospect from Minnesota.
Walton attends Hopkins (Minn.) High School, the same school that Zeke Nnaji played for.
Arizona had Walton in for an official visit last September for the annual Red-Blue scrimmage, where he got to watch Nnaji perform the National Anthem on the piano.
Arizona's 2020 recruiting class, not including transfers, currently includes two players: 4-star wing Dalen Terry signed with the Wildcats in November while 4-star wing Ben Mathurin committed in January. The UA has also added former Georgetown point guard James Akinjo.
