Purdue grad transfer Matt Haarms included the Arizona Wildcats in his list of 10 finalists according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

The Wildcats are the only Pac-12 program to make the cut.

A 7’3 big man from the Netherlands, Haarms would give Arizona substantial size in the paint.

Haarms has three years of high major experience but his efficiency has not mirrored his progression as a college player.

Haarms saw his field goal percentage and rebounds average decline from sophomore to junior year.

His top strength may be his shot blocking ability; his 12.6 block percentage ranked ninth nationally.

Arizona, which lost all five of its starters, can promise Haarms plenty of playing time and a decent chance of earning a starting role.
