The Arizona Wildcats received a second commitment from the 2015 recruiting class today, from guard Justin Simon of Temecula, Calif., according to Scout's Josh Gershon.

Simon is a 6-foot-5, 185-pound slashing combo guard who is rated four stars by ESPN.com.

Simon joins guard Tyler Dorsey of St. John Bosco in the class of 2015 so far. Both Simon and Dorsey have been invited to USA Basketball's U18 camp next month, along with incoming UA wing Stanley Johnson.

Although Simon and Dorsey are both guards, Simon's versatility suggests they can easily play together. Gershon said Simon can guard a point guard, shooting guard or small forward, and at least play either of the guard spots offensively.

"In the same way that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is so versatile that he can play a three or four, maybe two, Justin is a guard version of that in terms of versatility," Gershon said.

Gershon added that he's been tracking Simon for two years and found him to be "one of the best kids I've ever dealt with."
