Sean Miller has the No. 1 team in college basketball heading into this season. If he keeps it up in recruiting, he might wind up with the preseason No. 1 team again come 2018.  Arizona 2018 class is now ranked No. 1 & it's far from done. 

On Tuesday evening, Miller and the Wildcats landed their third top-50 prospect -- and first five-star get -- in the class of 2018. Five-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly announced at Steph Curry's basketball camp that he will play for Arizona come 2018-19. He picked Arizona over Villanova. Quinerly is from Jersey City, New Jersey.

He's ranked as the 15th best player in the class of 2018, according to 247 Sport's composite. Quinerly joins power forward Shareef O'Neal and fellow point guard Brandon Williams in Arizona's class. The Wilcats can now boast the top-ranked recruiting haul at this point of the recruiting calendar. Quinerly is the highest-ranked recruit to date in the class of 2018 to pledge to a school.
 
The decision for Quinerly comes with the expectation that combo guard Allonzo Trier will leave Arizona for early NBA entry after this season. Parker Jackson-Cartwright, the projected starter at the point this season for Arizona, is about to enter his senior season.

Quinerly is a natural playmaker and a humble-minded kid on the floor and off. He could be a spectacular two-year option for Miller at the point, depending on how his college career goes. He'll be a pass-first player, and someone with Miller's confidence to run an offense right away. He was a standout in mid-July at Under Armour's All-America Camp, playing with some really good 2018 recruits.

No matter who else Miller lands in the class of 2018, the Quinerly sets up Arizona's class up nicely and ensures the Wildcats will have a top-10 class when all the dust settles in the spring. Arizona's next target will likely be center Bol Bol, the top-five prospect -- and son of legendary NBA player Manute Bol -- who is being recruited by many bluebloods.

This is what I was thinking.
If I were to put my money on a position, I would say it be a big.
Who that big will be is the million dollar question.
I don't think it is going to be B.Bol, I would like to get N.Reid or S.Shittu on board.

As big of a get that Barrett would be, I'm thinking we land Bol and possibly Little.

Naz Reid

A few weeks ago Reid said he was thinking about pairing up with his Sports U teammate Jahvon Quinerly at the next level.

“Definitely, I feel like we’re one of the best duos to play AAU,” Reid said. “We are looking to [play together at the next level] but if we don’t we’re still brothers. We still love each other.”

Reid added that they talk about playing together often.

Would obviously love to have Reid, he was super impressive when I watched him the other day, but we kinda already have a similar player in Shareef?
We should have plenty of scholarships, but I really want Bol Bol and think we have more of a need at SF, like a 6'6 scorer (especially if Akot bolts) so not 100% sure where I stand.

Quinerly
Williams
Little
O'Neal
Reid
Bol

That'd be incredible but probably not realistic?

We are sitting very good with Reid, & Bol. North Carolina is ahead of us for Little, but things can change.

Isn't Reid at 6'10 bigger than O'neal?

On 247 Shareef is listed 6'9 and 205 pounds, Naz at 6'9 and 220 pounds but other sites have Shareef at 6'8 and Naz at 6'10 and 240 pounds. I suppose they are different enough in their style to play together but more at the 4/5. I still want a solid 3 with scoring ability

I don't think that it wouldn't be realistic.
Of those on that list, I think Little/Reid may be the hardest pulls in that order.
Little is such a wildcard because we don't have any connections to him.
Miller hasn't landed a Florida recruit yet, so we are coming in with the same pitches as Duke/UNC probably, except they have had much more recent success so I am going to guess and say we are sitting as 3rd right now.

I believe that O'Neal is going to try and extend his game out to the perimeter a la Gordon.
I have seen enough highlights of him out on the perimeter to get the idea that he might want to try and get some reps at SF.
I think his stock would be higher as a PF that can play like a SF a la Draymond Green.

I really do like Reid though.
I am not sure who I want more out of him and Shittu, but I would guess and say we have a better shot with Reid now we snagged his AAU teammate.
