When Jacob Hazzard joined the Arizona Wildcats as a walk-on guard last summer, he had plenty of role models to choose from.

Hazzard was particularly struck by Steve Kerr, and Miles Simon was already a mentor of sorts. The grandson of former UCLA standout Walt Hazzard also can look at the accomplishments of former UA standouts such as Sean Elliott, Tom Tolbert, Matt Muehlebach and Corey Williams.
