Belgian forward Omar Thielemans committed to Arizona after an official visit this weekend, he said on Twitter, giving the Wildcats a second player in their new 2018 recruiting class.

Thielemans told 247Sports his visit to Arizona was "crazy" in a good way.

"I didn’t expect the campus to be so big," Thielemans said. "The coaching staff impressed me with strength and conditioning. The players were very welcoming. After the first day I was really convinced but after the second day I made my decision.”

Thielemans is a 6-7, 200-pound forward who plays for Belgian club B.C. Oostende. He joins Southern California guard Devonaire Doutrive in UA's 2018 recruiting class.

UA now has eight players on board for 2018-19, with five scholarships still open. Pitt grad transfer Ryan Luther also visited UA this weekend.
