Not much has gone right for the Arizona Wildcats on the recruiting front lately, but 6-foot-5 Tyler Herro out of Milwaukee might just change that.

Herro, who had been committed to the Wisconsin Badgers for over a year, decommitted this week and told Scout.com that he’s talked with Arizona, Kansas, Ohio State, Villanova, Florida, Oregon, and said UNLV has already attempted to schedule an in-home visit with him.

“I don’t know where I want to go, but I have a pretty good idea of what I’m looking for and what I want going forward,” Herro told Scout.

“I’m just looking for a college that I can excel in the offense, come in right away and contribute, have a great relationship with the coach and hopefully that school can get me to next level.”

Say what you may about the current FBI investigation hovering over college basketball, but if a recruit is willing to say Arizona’s name on the record with what the program is currently going through, it may not be as bad as it seems. (Or it is and everyone’s in the dark. Who really knows at this point.)

Arizona already has two point guards, Brandon Williams and Jahvon Quinerly, committed in addition to forward Shareef O’Neal in its 2018 class.

Regardless if all of those stay true, Arizona will still need a two-guard/wing with Rawle Alkins and Allonzo Trier likely to leave for the NBA next year.

Herro’s size and ability to put the ball in the basket would fit in well with Sean Miller’s motion offense and continue to give the UA a plethora of scoring weapons from all angles.
