Five players to keep an eye on

There are plenty of players the Arizona coaching staff will be watching, but who are the players Arizona fans should have an invested interest in? Read on for five players fans should keep an eye on.

With the first evaluation of the summer ready to begin, here are five players that Arizona fans should keep an eye on.

1.Kaleb Tarczewski: Tarczewski is likely down to Kansas, Arizona, and North Carolina and has not been in action in a while due to a minor injury.

Now that he is back, it will be interesting to see the strides he has made and if he can make one more push up the rankings.

Arizona and Kansas are sure to follow his every move, but with word that North Carolina is running third, will Roy Williams follow suit?

If not, it will be apparent that UNC feels the same way that most do. Tarczewski is a major priority for Arizona and for that reason alone, is a player Arizona fans need to pay attention to.

2. Gabe York: York had a disappointing spring and many are curious to see how he will bounce back. At a recent high school tournament, he scored 43 points against Westlake Village Oaks Christian and will be looking for similar performances this summer.

Although he remains a priority recruit for Arizona, his stock has taken somewhat of a hit, as evidenced by a bit of a drop in Scout.com's latest rankings.

That is not to say that he is not a good player, because he certainly is. However, he will surely come out motivated and there are still some that he has something to prove to.

York is going to be followed and recruited by Arizona and Marquette regardless, but he definitely wants to put his best foot forward.

3. Stephen Domingo: The 2013 prospect saw his stock rise at the Pangos All-American Camp and now coaches can finally get on the road and watch him.

The big question here is what new schools will enter his recruitment and how that will possibly change his views on the whole process.

Arizona has offered Domingo and other schools have followed, but it is almost a guarantee that he is going to blow up this summer.

Often times, a school can fall by the wayside once a recruitment picks up, but that is likely not the case with Arizona.

Still, it will be interesting to see how Domingo handles all the attention he is about to get from schools throughout the country.

4. Jordan Bell: There are not many better defensive players in the class of 2013, if any. With Bell, it is a matter of whether or not he can be effective enough on the offensive side of the ball to get national attention.

If Bell shows a decent offensive game this summer, he is very likely going to have schools all over him. Arizona already has an eye on him and will be viewing him during the first evaluation period.

Should he show a bit more offense, we expect him to become a priority recruit for a lot of schools and a player that you will hear plenty about in the future.

5. Isaiah Bailey: When Arizona fans think of 2014 prospects, Shaqquan Aaron and Stanley Johnson probably come to mind first.

Bailey is a name that not many people may be familiar with, but it would not be a huge surprise to see him compete with the better players in the west.

Bailey has a solid shot and athleticism and considering he is growing in height, there is a good chance that he will grow as a prospect as well.

As of now, Bailey is a player to keep an eye on, but by the end of the summer, he could be much more.
