The Wildcats already have the third-ranked class, but they are not done adding to it

NCAA Basketball: Arizona at Washington Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats had several important recruits in attendance for Saturday’s game against the UCLA Bruins, including 2017 five-star prospects Trevon Duval and Brian Bowen, and could be adding one of them soon.

Arizona has four recruits already signed in its 2017 class, and head coach Sean Miller expects to add at least one more player to the mix.

“Moving forward, I think we’ll add at least one player this spring, maybe two to that class,” he said Monday at his weekly press conference.

Aside from Bowen and Duval, Arizona’s other top target is Brandon McCoy — a five-star forward from San Diego, Calif.

McCoy has Arizona in his final five, also considering Michigan State, Oregon, UNLV, and San Diego State.

Arizona is in the final five for Duval and is thought to be one of two suitors for Bowen (with the other being Michigan State).


Miller said nothing has surprised him about the seasons signees Brandon Randolph, DeAndre Ayton, Alex Barcello, and Ira Lee are having, saying that they are all doing “well”.

“Brandon Randolph has really had a great year. Alex (Barcello) is playing in a state championship on Tuesday,” Miller said. “I think DeAndre is finishing up and obviously he’ll finish up in the McDonald’s (All-American) game. Ira started where his shoulder was injured, but he’s playing and playing really well.”

Arizona currently has the third-ranked 2017 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports.
