Kansas seemed like the leader heading into the summer, but Arizona made up plenty of ground. Sean Miller with the strong close.

No. 1 prospect DeAndre Ayton has committed to Arizona.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

The No. 1 player in the country, DeAndre Ayton, chooses Arizona over Kansas and Kentucky. "I felt comfortable with Coach Miller and the staff -- and it also allows me to be close to my mom for college." Obviously, this is a huge, huge get for Sean Miller and the Wildcats. Could wind up being the first No. 1 overall draft pick in Arizona history.

DeAndre Ayton could deliver Final Four for Sean Miller

Arizona has been to the Final Four, just not with Sean Miller, who has come oh so close. DeAndre Ayton's decision to go to Arizona instead of Kentucky or Kansas might get Miller there.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

If Arizona lands DeAndre Ayton, he will be the first No. 1 recruit to commit to the Wildcats since the ESPN database started in 2007. Sean Miller did land the No. 4-ranked recruit in back-to-back years (Kaleb Tarczewski in 2012, Aaron Gordon in 2013).
