Bagley, the top recruit in 2018, is “likely” to reclassify to 2017 and the Wildcats already have 13 scholarship players on their roster for the 2017-18 season, meaning they have no room to add Bagley — and evidently aren’t willing or able to make room for him.
Duke is widely believed to be the leader for Bagley, but he could shift the landscape of the Pac-12 significantly if he chooses USC or UCLA.
At minimum, it appears Bagley won’t be playing his college ball at Arizona unless his request to reclassify is turned down, but that seems unlikely at this point.
Arizona does have Devon Dotson on campus this week, as the four-star point guard is in Tucson for his official visit. The 2018 recruit is the No. 32 player in his class and No. 6 point guard.
