TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona’s rumored return to prominence two years ago was premature.
The Wildcats may actually be on track now — not just this season, but for many to come.
Backing up a stellar recruiting class with one that may be even better, coach Sean Miller appears to have a foundation in place to resurrect a program that has missed the NCAA tournament two of the past three seasons.
Miller’s latest recruiting class includes four of the top prospects in the country — three of them big men — and two of the four from last year’s class are back this season.
The Wildcats also have a nice mix of veteran players, led by forward Solomon Hill, which should help them win this season and recruit more players in the future.
