Miller had already received commitments from the no. 7 overall recruit and 5 star forawrd Stanley Johnson as well as the no. 37 ranked recruit Craig Victor.

Arizona's size and depth gets a huge boost from this latest addition. Draft Express had Ristic previously listed as a potential 1st round NBA pick.
