The Arizona Wildcats reportedly added to their roster on Saturday.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, European prospect Kerr Kriisa has committed to the university.

Kriisa, 19, has played at both the professional level and for his national team in Estonia.

According to Givony, Kriisa said the Wildcats coaching staff provided him the best opportunity to develop.

This season in the Lithuanian NKL, Kriisa averaged 14.8 points and 6.0 assists in 25 minutes, shooting 39% from beyond the arc. He also shot 84% from the charity stripe.

In addition, Kriisa was named MVP of the Adidas Next Generational Tournament in Kaunas in 2019, earning him an invite to the Basketball Without Borders Global Camp during the NBA All-Star Weekend.

Kriisa commitment to joining the Wildcats’ ranks is surely a positive for the team.

The 6-foot-2 guard joins an Arizona squad that has lost numerous key players since last season, including Nico Mannion, Zeke Nnaji and Josh Green, who all declared for the 2020 NBA Draft.
