As contact begins for Sean Miller and Arizona Basketball, as well as numerous other coaches for the class off 2022, the Wildcats came out aggressive.
Arizona Basketball recruiting never stops, and that is certainly true as we saw Sean Miller and the Wildcats have a rather event-filled day. Today was the day schools can begin contacting players in the recruiting class of 2022, and the boy did Arizona stay aggressive.
While 2022 seems so far away, remember that recruiting is an ongoing thing, and while Arizona has already been making in roads for the class of 2021, Miller and Arizona also need to focus towards the future!

On Monday, the Wildcats were officially allowed to begin contacting players in the class of 2022, to what I could I account for, I saw the Wildcats give out four offers (including one yesterday) that I could account for, and here is who the Wildcats had offered!
PG – Milos Uzan – 6’2” 160 lbs – Desert Pines High School (Las Vegas, NV)
Milos got an offer from Arizona on Monday afternoon, and this is a smart move by the Cats. Already receiving interest from UCLA, UNLV and TCU among others, Milos has more time to develop and will very solid prospect when all is said and done.
SG/SF – Camden Heide – 6’5” 180 lbs – Wayzata High School (Minneapolis, MN)
Camden is already one of the better players in the country for 2022, and is the best player in the state for his class according to 247Sports. With Arizona already having done well in Minnesota recruiting wise, this offer makes sense. Camden is a versatile, sharp-shooting wing, and Arizona is smart to get involved early on.
F – ND Okafor – 6’7” – Ireland
An sharp international prospect that is gaining a lot of interest from numerous programs is Okafor. With offers from Baylor, Creighton, Georgia, Kansas State and Kentucky already, Arizona was smart to offer here. He showed a lot of upside at the FIBA U16 European Championship, averaging 16.1 points, 14.3 rebounds and 5.0 blocked shots per game in just the eight games played in that tournament!
PG – Christian Watson – 6’2″ 145 lbs – Long Beach Poly High School (Long Beach, CA)
The younger brother to one of the class of 2021’s top prospects in Peyton Watson, Arizona naturally made the offer to Christian as well. Already drawing interest from Cal and Washington as well, Arizona was smart to get in on this one, not only because he’s the brother to Christian, but he could develop into a solid prospect as well. He comes from good genes, and he could end up being a high-major prospect.
Really like the aggressiveness by Miller here, and I do like these offers a lot as well. All great athletes that could feasibly be multi-year players outside of maybe Okafor who could be a high level player in my opinion. As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
