Arizona hoops moves to No. 1 in recruiting class of 2019

And now leading this year’s men’s basketball recruiting season – drum roll, please – the University of Arizona.


With the commitment of four-star power forward Zeke Nnaji, UA has moved to the top of the list. Nnaji committed this morning in a public setting, picking Arizona’s hat to make it as unofficially official.

Nico Mannion and Josh Green, both of whom had already committed to Arizona for 2019, also attended. Arizona also has commitments from shooting guard Terry Armstrong and center Christian Koloko.

What it all means is Arizona has seemingly made an impression on the players and their families in light of and in spite of the FBI investigation.

It also means Sean Miller has landed a strong player at every position.

The future does indeed look bright.

Miller has yet to speak about the class but is expected to at some point next week.
