Top five players to watch

There are numerous players that Arizona will be watching this week. here are five that Arizona fans should be interested in for the Las Vegas tournaments.

We will be seeing numerous players as the tournaments in Las Vegas get started and here are five players that should excite Arizona fans the most.

1. Brandon Ashley: Every time Ashley competes, he raises his stock. He likely will not move up the rankings much, but that does not mean he is an absolutely an elite player.

Arizona head coach Sean Miller will be in attendance for every one of his games in Las Vegas and he is a priority for the class, as we already know.

Ashley will be going up against some of the best players in the country in the next week or so and it should be fun to watch him compete.

2. Kaleb Tarczewski: Tarczewski will have games against Andre Drummond, Cameron Ridley, and Isaiah Austin at the very least, so he will be tested against the best players at his position.

We already know Tarczewski is an elite player, but it will be interesting to see him go up against some of the best players in the country to even further that stance.

Arizona has a very legitimate shot at landing Tarczewski, so it should be fun to see what the Wildcats could potentially get down the road.

3. Grant Jerrett: Jerrett is considered to be one of the best players in the country, but his stock took a bit of a hit over the spring when some analysts said his game had not improved much.

If Jerrett is completely healthy, scouts should be able to see how he looks going up against the Oakland Soldiers, Team Breakdown, and others.

Jerrett is very likely to be fine at the next level, but many would like to see him play well against elite competition in order to calm any fears that people may have about him.

4. Shaqquan Aaron: With much talk about Stanley Johnson and Isaiah Bailey, Aaron has been somewhat forgotten.

He is just as strong as any of the other prospects out west for his class and the Vegas tournaments will give him an opportunity to prove that.

We're guessing that there is a good chance that Aaron has an impressive week and you start hearing a bit more about him again.

5. Chris Thomas: The more impressive Thomas plays each tournament, the harder it may be for Arizona to move past his recruitment.

We will be looking at his maturity on and off the court just as much as his play, but it is going to be interesting to see the best scorer in 2013 go up against some of his elite peers.
