The Arizona Wildcats need frontcourt depth but one of their top targets is no longer on the market. Purdue grad transfer has cut his list of finalists from 10 to three—Kentucky, Texas Tech and BYU, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

Haarms have been an interesting addition to Arizona’s frontcourt because of his unique ability to block shots (at an elite level) and step out and shoot 3s. The 7-foot-3 Dutchman averaged 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game with the Boilermakers this season.

It is unclear where the Wildcats will go from here, but as we saw with the commitment of Kerr Kriisa, they are capable of making under-the-radar moves.

Arizona still has three scholarship slots to fill. Right now its frontcourt consists of Ira Lee, Christian Koloko and Jordan Brown.
