Arizona will still see its own in action on the last week of the tourney. But it will be nowhere near New Orleans.
Brandon Ashley, out of Findlay Prep (Nev.) by way of Oakland, Calif., is a 6'8" combo-forward with a deft mid-range game and a nasty streak near the basket. Physically, he seems the closest thing to Derrick Williams since Williams was in Tucson in 2011.
Grant Jerrett is a skilled, polished power forward with a wide-shouldered 6'10" frame and a nice outside stroke. ESPN's scouting report described him as "improving at an alarming rate."
Center Kaleb Tarczewski, the most-lauded player in the class, probably performed well enough to make the cut. But he is a fifth-year senior, and thus ineligible, according to the Arizona Daily Star's Bruce Pascoe.
Ashley and Jerrett are the latest Arizona commits to play in the nation's premier prep all-star game. There were 15 before them.
