The Arizona Wildcats remain connected to yet another Findlay Prep player.

Rashad Vaughn, a five-star shooting guard from the class of 2014, has listed Arizona among the seven schools he is still considering even as he cut Kentucky, UCLA, UConn and Georgetown from his list.

Other schools Vaughn is still considering include North Carolina, Baylor, Kansas, Minnesota, UNLV and Iowa State. According to Zagsblog, Vaughn has scheduled visits to Baylor and Iowa State but postponed one to UNC.

Arizona already has two Findlay players on its roster, guard Nick Johnson and forward Brandon Ashley, while the Wildcats have a commitment from Findlay senior Craig Victor.

NBCSports has a list of key transfers waiting on waiver decisions, including Oregon's Joseph Young and ex-OSU guard Ahmad Starks, though Zach Peters wasn't on it.

Is the earlier new start to college basketball practices (six weeks before the first game, which is Friday in UA's case) a good thing? CBSSports asks around.

Former UA associate head coach James Whitford of Ball State agreed to a two-for-one with Utah, going to Salt Lake City each of the next two seasons in exchange for a crack at the Utes in Muncie during the 2015-16 season.

ESPN analysts are already debating the No. 1 NBA draft pick in 2014.

Because of the early start to practices, UA will hold its annual preseason media day Wednesday afternoon, so we'll have updates from Sean Miller and UA players afterward.
