Arizona Basketball Recruiting: Wildcats Have Commitments From 4 Of ESPNU's Top 100 Prospects

The Arizona Wildcats did not quite live up to expectations in the 2011-12 NCAA basketball season, but they have overcompensated by bringing in a bevy of top prospects for the coming year. They have already landed no fewer than four prospects who ranked in the Top 100 of ESPNU's recent ranking of the class of 2012, including incoming freshmen who cracked the top 10.

Arizona received a letter of commitment from Kaleb Tarczewski, a seven-foot-tall, 240-pound center from Claremont, NH. Tarczewski is the overall No. 4 prospect in ESPNU's rankings. He's pegged as a five-star recruit with a rating of 97.

The Wildcats have also received a commitment from five-star recruit Grant Jerrett, a 6'10" power forward from La Verne, CA. Jerrett clocks in at No. 9 in the ESPNU rankings, also with a rating of 97.

Arizona's third five-star, 97-rating recruit is power forward Brandon Ashley from Oakland. ESPNU places him at No. 16 in their Top 100.

Finally, the Cats will welcome No. 65 prospect Gabe York, a 6'1" shooting guard from Orange, CA. York is a four-star recruit with a rating of 93.
