Basketball: Ashley commits to Arizona

Former Bishop O’Dowd HS star Brandon Ashley, who will play his senior season at Findlay Prep outside Las Vegas, has orally committed to Arizona. Cal has long been out of the sweepstakes for this 6-foot-8, elite-level national prospect, but his decision to play at Tucson only further confirms that UA coach Sean Miller is rebuilding the dynasty that Lute Olson created.

Scout.com ranks Ashley as the nation’s No. 3 overall prospects, No. 1 at power forward. Rivals.com┬áplaces him No. 13 overall prospect in the class of 2012.
