Arizona received a commitment on Tuesday from top-25 prospect Justin Simon.

Simon, a 6-foot-5 guard from Temecula, Calif., is ranked No. 23 in the country by Rivals.com and joins another five-star guard, Tyler Dorsey, in the Wildcats' Class of 2015.

Among the school recruiting Simon were Oregon, Colorado, USC, UCLA, Louisville, Texas, Florida, Indiana and Memphis.

Arizona finished 33-5 this past season and fell one game short of the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament, losing to Wisconsin 64-63 in overtime in the West Regional final.
