Arizona added additional firepower to its potential No. 1 class in 2015 on Sunday as four-star forward Chance Comanche committed to the Wildcats.

Comanche committed to Arizona during his official visit to campus this weekend.



A 6-foot-10 post scorer in-the-making, Comanche has a lot of upside as the No. 31 overall player in Rivals’ 2015 rankings and once he puts on weight, he should be able to get buckets on the block thanks to his soft touch and good hands.

The center is a native of Beverly Hills, California and joins Arizona’s newest highly-touted recruiting class that includes 6-foot-5 combo guard Justin Simon, 6-foot-3 scoring guard Allonzo Trier and 6-foot-7 small forward Ray Smith.

Comanche nows gives Arizona a front court presence in this class to go along with the three five-star perimeter threats. Along with Louisville, Arizona continues to battle for the No. 1 overall class in 2015 and Comanche’s commitment likely puts the Wildcats back in the lead -- for now.

UConn and Arizona State hosted Comanche for official visits earlier in the recruiting process and by committing, Comanche won’t make previously scheduled trips to N.C. State and UCLA.

Although they took a commitment from Comanche, the Wildcats are still scheduled to host an official visit for five-star big man Stephen Zimmerman on November 11th and Arizona is also in the final five for five-star power forward Carlton Bragg and in the running for five-star big man Ivan Rabb.

Comanche’s commitment doesn’t mean Arizona is finished recruiting in 2015 and Sean Miller’s team could look to add another big man before it’s over.
