Sean Miller’s unanimous No. 1-ranked Class of 2015 recruiting class received national letters of intent from Temecula (Calif.) Brewster Academy point guard Justin Simon and Beverly Hills (Calif.) High School center Chance Comanche today.

Small forward Ray Smith of Las Vegas (Nev.) High School informed me he will likely transmit his national letter of intent by tomorrow.

“Tomorrow, I believe,” Smith messaged me tonight when asked when he will sign his letter of intent.

Various recruiting sites are reporting that Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep guard Allonzo Trier will submit his letter of intent by the end of the fall signing period next Wednesday.

Those same recruiting services praise Miller’s efforts for amassing the best class to this point in the nation. The class has a good chance of getting stronger if Las Vegas Bishop Gorman center Stephen Zimmerman and/or Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O’Dowd power forward Ivan Rabb decide on Arizona in the spring.

Justin Simon

About Justin Simon: “At 6-5, Simon has wide shoulders and a lengthy set of arms. He’s been measured with a 6-11 wing span. Simon plays on the ball and is effective in that role. He sees the floor well and is a good passer. Defensively he’s able to guard three positions and is a menace as an on the ball defender. Simon is also a very good rebounder from the guard position. The next step in his development is developing his long-range shot.” —

About Chance Comanche: “Slender big man is a big time post scorer in the making. He runs very well, has outstanding hands and very soft touch around the rim. He is comfortable shooting jumpers out to 15 feet and is an alert passer. He blocks some shots but will become more effective there and as a rebounder as he adds the strength to fight for position in the lane.” —

Wednesday marked the beginning of the early fall signing period.

Logistic factors go into a prospect not immediately submitting his letter of intent. The binding letter must include the signature of a parent or legal guardian. With prospects away from their homes, such as Trier at Henderson (Nev.) instead of Rockville (Md.) after transferring to Findlay Prep, the process is not a swift one.

The letter of intent might have to be faxed to and from the prospect and his parent or guardian before the completely signed document is submitted to the university.

Arizona’s program expects to have all of the letters of intent by the end of the signing period next Wednesday. The school will not have a formal announcement of the signees with quotes from Miller until all have been received.
