2015 Recruiting: A closer look

Arizona has started recruiting numerous recruits in the 2015 class and is evaluating others. Read on for a closer look at where Arizona's 2015 recruiting stands as of now.

Arizona has offered numerous recruits in 2015 while evaluating others. Here is a look at some of the targets Arizona is recruiting and where it stands with each.

Brodricks Jones: Arizona is recruiting Jones, but there is not a huge update right now. He does not talk a lot about his recruitment, but does hold a Wildcat offer, among others. Jones is a player to keep an eye on throughout the summer, as his recruitment could take more shape. Until then, it is difficult to gauge where the schools involved currently stand.

Charles Matthews: Matthews is one of the best guards in the country and he will be recruited as such. Arizona was one of the first schools on him and continues to recruit him aggressively. However, Matthews' recruitment is national and it certainly will not be easy to land him. Book Richardson has done a good job recruiting Matthews and getting him on campus would be big, but the five-star is nowhere close to making a decision.

Ivan Rabb: Rabb is easily one of the best players in the country and a top priority for Arizona. The Wildcats are in solid shape, but Rabb has seen his recruitment really take off as of late. There is a good chance he will basically be able to pick his school and any time that happens, it makes landing a recruit difficult. However, the coaching staff has done a very good job here and it would be a surprise if Arizona did not remain right in the thick of things when it comes time for Rabb to make a decision.

Tyler Dorsey: Dorsey is another player that Arizona offered relatively early and continues to recruit. He will likely be a priority for the local schools and has a good relationship with the USC staff. Dorsey does not plan on making an early decision, so there is still a ways to go. Arizona will have a legitimate chance here, but there will be numerous schools that will be trying to get in there as well.

Stephen Zimmerman: Zimmerman is seeing his stock increase, although it can't get much higher. The Wildcats continue to aggressively recruit him and Sean Miller recently flew to Dallas just to see one of Zimmerman's games. There is a UCLA connection here and Steve Alford has made Zimmerman a priority, which is not a surprise. Zimmerman is going to take his time with his recruitment, but Arizona has done a nice job and will remain a school of major interest.

Elijah Thomas: Arizona is recruiting Thomas, but so is basically every other school in the country. Thomas is basically going to be able to pick his school and he is in no rush because of it. Schools like Duke, Ohio State, Indiana, and others have him on top of their board, which makes it hard for Arizona to land him. The Wildcats are going to work to get him on campus band in order to land him, they are going to need to.

Chance Comanche: Arizona recently went to watch Comanche and he is an intriguing prospect. He currently does not have the offer list that he should, so he is one to keep an eye on this summer. It would not be a surprise to see his recruitment take off and because of that, we really don't have a good feel for where things stand with him.

Cheick Diallo: Book Richardson has done a good job in this recruitment, but he is another player that is going to be difficult to land because of location. It is a matter of time until the Big East is all over him and recruits like that don't usually wind up in the Pac-12. However, Arizona was able to offer him early and has been recruiting him since. Like most recruits, the key here is getting Diallo on campus and if that happens, the chance of landing him obviously increases.

Isaiah Briscoe: Briscoe has already been to Arizona and it puts the Wildcats in solid position. He has been impressive during EYBL and we expect his offer list to increase. As we have stated with other players that live near him, bringing a player in the east to the Pac-12 is never easy. However, Arizona has done a good job here and could have a legitimate shot.

Bennie Boatwright: Boatwright is yet another Southern California player that the local schools are making a priority. UCLA offered him somewhat early and Arizona's offer was pretty recent. Boatwright reminds us a lot of Austin Daye, which definitely is not a bad thing. He is currently playing for Cal Supreme and that should not hurt Arizona at all. Boatwright wants to take his time with a decision and Arizona will continue to pick up its recruitment of him.

Chase Jeter: Arizona watched Jeter in April and he holds an offer from the Wildcats as well as other schools. Jeter is thinking about visiting Arizona and Indiana this summer and obviously the coaching staff would love to get him on campus. At this point, Jeter is saying that his recruitment is wide open. However, getting him on campus would be a big step and it will be interesting to see what direction Jeter's recruitment goes in this summer.

Cameron Walker: Walker does not have an offer from Arizona, but it has seen him numerous times and he remains a target. Walker is likely to get Pac-12 offers and USC could be a school to watch, as Tony Bland recruited Walker while at San Diego State. It is hard to say where Arizona stands without an offer, but Walker remains a player to keep a close eye on.
