Arizona will host two big-time transfers this weekend.
Transferring Duke sophomore big man Chase Jeter, a native of Las Vegas, will visit the Wildcats, as will transferring Pittsburgh sophomore forward Cam Johnson.
The 6-foot-10 Jeter has already visited Cal, San Diego State and Gonzaga ahead of a UCLA visit on May 12. The 6-8 Johnson has been to Kentucky and will hit Oregon and UCLA next week.
Johnson’s father played with Arizona coach Sean Miller at Pittsburgh.“It factors in a little bit because there’s familiarity and a level of trust that my dad has with him and that I have with him,” Johnson told Scout.com. “We know him and his family well. I think it mostly comes down to trust factor and familiarity and comfort having him as a coach.
Jeter suffered a herniated disc that required surgery halfway through his sophomore campaign and played in 16 games with six starts. He averaged 2.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 14.9 minutes per appearance.
