Arizona coach Sean Miller and his present staff of Danny Peters and Mark Phelps are still very active trying to complete their Class of 2018 recruiting efforts but they also very much have an eye toward beyond the upcoming season.
This weekend was the start of the evaluation period of recruits at events sponsored by Adidas, Under Armour and Nike and each of the three coaches were active in Dallas and Irvine, Calif.
Lithuanian big man Lukas Kisunas, a former UConn commit, finished his official visit of Arizona’s campus yesterday and departed early this morning. He is also being recruited by Pitt, Stanford and Wake Forest.
Arizona has offered a scholarship to Class of 2018 Overland Park (Kansas) Blue Valley Northwest 6-8, 200-pound power forward Parker Braun, who also is being recruited by Ole Miss.
Watching this video, it appears that Braun’s strength is on the blocks and he shows the ability to finish:
According to tweets of recruiting services that cover Arizona — GOAZCATS.com (with The Sports Guys member Matt Moreno) and WildcatAuthority.com — here is an update of prospects Miller, Peters and Phelps watched this weekend:
