University of Arizona head coach Sean Miller has recovered from the dark cloud of the FBI’s investigation into college basketball’s recruiting corruption hanging over him last season.
Miller has 247 Sports’ No. 1 recruiting class in 2019, featuring two five-star perimeter players and three more additional recruits.
When Miller was asked at an availability with the media on Tuesday regarding the status of the letter of intent’s for the four recruits who committed before the early signing period, he visually demonstrated the four letters of intent that he was in possession of.

Five-star point guard Nico Mannion, five-star forward Josh Green, four-star shooting guard Terry Armstrong and three-star center Christian Koloko are those aforementioned letters of intent signed from Nov. 14-21.
The next signing period for recruits to sign in will run from April 17 to May 15. Zeke Nnaji, a four-star power forward, has also committed but will sign during that period.
Arizona’s recruiting class from 2018 took a hit during the FBI’s investigation. Five-star recruit Shareef O’Neal de-committed from the Wildcats and went to UCLA while freshman Brandon Williams originally de-committed from Arizona in March before coming back and signing with the team later on. Freshman forward and four-star signing Omar Thielemans also transferred from the team in mid-October before even playing his first game.
