1 Comment

Friday was a big day for the Arizona frontline.

Kaleb Tarczewski announced he would return for his senior season on Friday morning. In the evening, San Francisco transfer committed to the Wildcats, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com. The 6-foot-9 Tollefson left the Dons on April 1. He is on track to graduate, meaning he is eligible to play next season in Tucson. He had visited Arizona last weekend with heavily-recruited Drexel transfer Damion Lee, who eventually picked Louisville.

On Thursday, Stanley Johnson declared for the 2015 NBA Draft, joining Brandon Ashley, who decided to forgo his final year earlier this month.

Last season, Tollefson averaged 14.0 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, shooting 38 percent from three.

He joins an incoming group that includes Boston College transfer Ryan Anderson and the heralded freshman class of Allonzo Trier, Justin Simon, Ray Smith and Chance Comanche.
