Arizona has suffered another recruiting blow in the wake of the arrest of assistant coach Book Richardson last week.

Five-star forward Simi Shittu canceled a scheduled Nov. 3 visit to Arizona while he is still expected to visit Vanderbilt this weekend and North Carolina on Nov. 10.

Shittu's decision appears to make North Carolina the leader but it is also possible that many top 2018 recruits won't sign a binding letter-of-intent until next spring, when more could be revealed out of the FBI investigation.

Last week, the top-rated player in the class of 2018, R.J. Barrett, dropped Arizona from his list of finalists.


Sonny Vaccaro is hoping the investigation leads to an overhaul.


Roy Williams says Nike has never helped him get a player.
