Arizona Wildcats head basketball coach Sean Miller is a savvy recruiter.
After the 2010-11 season when he led the Wildcats to a 30-win season and an Elite Eight performance, he was able to secure four players, three of them were ranked by Scout.com in the top ten in the country at their respective positions. Two of those players are still making solid contributions to the team in No. 7 shooting guard Nick Johnson and No. 10 power forward Angelo Chol.
The other two players that Miller released are having a tough time since they left Tucson. Josiah Turner is on his third pro team in six months and Sidiki Johnson is reportedly off the team at Providence College.
This speaks volumes about Miller's judgement of character and the Wildcats are fortunate to be rid of them.
Miller's Wildcats went on to a miserable 2011-12 season finishing with a 23-12, 12-6 Pac-12 record and losing in the first round of the NIT to No. 8 seed Bucknell. This would not hamper Miller on the recruiting trail as he scored arguably one of the best recruiting classes in 2012.
Snagging three 5-star and one 4-star recruit, Miller had once again elevated the Wildcats program to new heights leading them to a 14-0 record and a month straight in the AP top five.
Let's take a look at the future of Arizona Wildcats' basketball and grade Miller's recruiting.
