Markelle Fultz (2016) – Fultz officially visits Arizona from June 8th-10th. Arizona assistant Book Richardson has done a masterful job in this recruitment as he has the trust of Fultz, his mother Ebony, and trainer Keith Williams. Now Arizona will come out guns blazing and push for a commitment on his official visit. We believe Arizona is the school to beat for Fultz. It all comes down to his relationship with the coaching staff and Arizona being the best fit for the elite wing.

Josh Jackson (2016) – The #1 recruit in the 2016 class will visit Arizona on June 6th and Joe Pasternack is the lead recruiter on Jackson. He won’t be making a decision for a while and Maryland has recently entered the picture for Jackson. Arizona and Kansas are doing well with Jackson, but Arizona will look to take advantage of their position next week even if a commitment isn’t in the near future.

Jaylen Hands (2017) – UCLA is the leader for Hands, but Arizona is doing all they can to land the talented 2017 point guard.

MJ Cage (2016) – Arizona remains the leader for MJ Cage. Cage is considered to be a four year player in the Wildcat’s system. Look for him to make a decision in the fall.

Josh Langford (2016) – Arizona hopes to get Langford to visit in June, but no date is set as of yet. Michigan State and UK are major players in this recruitment, but Arizona is making up ground.

Kobi Simmons (2016) – Arizona is in the top 3 for Simmons, but needs to get him on campus. Kentucky is considered the team to beat for Simmons.

DJ Harvey (2017) – Arizona is the leader for DJ Harvey and if he wasn’t two years away from going to college, then he would have already committed to Arizona. This recruitment seems to be a matter of time and Arizona is right where it wants to be, as long as they have patience.

Ira Lee (2017) – Lee has already made a big impression on the national level and has picked up several big time offers from Arizona, UCONN, USC, UCLA, Auburn, Tulsa, and Cal. Of these schools, Arizona, UCONN, UCLA, and Cal are currently recruiting him the hardest. Arizona is the leader in the recruitment. Lee will likely visit Cal and UCLA this summer and he visited Arizona in March.

Marvin Bagley (2018) – UK has recently offered the #1 prospect in 2018. He’s in no rush to make a decision, but Arizona leads.

Brandon McCoy (2017) – Michigan State, Arizona, UCLA and Kansas are recruiting the 2017 center the hardest. He won’t be making a decision any time soon and Arizona should be in this until the end.

Jalen Hill (2017) – Arizona recently offered Hill, who is also hearing from Cal and UCLA, among others. Arizona is hoping to land either McCoy or Jalen Hill.

Greg Floyd Jr (2017) – Floyd has an offer from Arizona, but this recruitment is still in its early stages. He also has offers from Washington, Cal and USC.
