DeAndre Ayton might be the player who leads the Arizona Wildcats back to the Final Four.

Wildcats coach Sean Miller has come within a victory on three separate occasions since arriving in Tucson seven years ago. He has brought plenty of talent to the desert since taking over, with five players selected in the first round of the NBA draft.

But he has never landed a recruit like Ayton -- until now. Ayton, the No. 1 prospect in the ESPN 100, selected Arizona on Tuesday.
