Finland native Lauri Markkanen committed to the Arizona Wildcats during his official visit, sources told ESPN on Saturday.
Markkanen chose the Wildcats over North Carolina and Utah, both of which he visited over the past week.
Multiple coaches who have seen Markkanen, a 7-footer, told ESPN he would be considered a top-25 player if he were in the United States. They also said he is a possible one-and-done candidate for the NBA draft.
