TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona's rumored return to prominence two years ago was premature.

The Wildcats may actually be on track now -- not just this season, but for many to come.

Backing up a stellar recruiting class with one that may be even better, coach Sean Miller appears to have a foundation in place to resurrect a program that has missed the NCAA tournament two of the past three seasons.

Miller's latest recruiting class includes four of the top prospects in the country -- three of them big men -- and two of the four from last year's class are back this season.

The Wildcats also have a nice mix of veteran players, led by forward Solomon Hill, which should help them win this season and recruit more players in the future.
