— Josh Jackson, a 6-7 senior guard from Prolific Prep in Napa, California, who is ranked 1 in the Class of 2016 by, visited Arizona last weekend. 

Jackson is to visit Kansas on Jan. 23, with Michigan State and others also a factor.

Jackson won a gold medal with USA Basketball’s Under 19 team last summer. That squad was coached by Arizona’s Sean Miller.

“Coach Miller, he's a great coach," Jackson told “ Obviously, I’ve been able to play under him with USA basketball. He’s a great guy and great coach. I love their style of play and they’re always good,” Jackson continued. “He’s a great recruiter. He knows how to recruit guys."

Billy Preston, a 6-9 junior from Advanced Prep International in Dallas who is ranked No. 6 in the Class of 2017, also visited Arizona recently.

Preston has a list of Arizona, KU, USC, Maryland, UConn, Kentucky, Oregon, N.C. State, UNLV, Baylor, Arizona State, Texas and St. John’s.
