Arizona Wildcats men's basketball coach Sean Miller continues to line up one impressive recruiting class after another.

His incoming class may be his best yet.

On Wednesday, 5-star shooting guard Terrance Ferguson announced his commitment to play for UA next season, giving the Wildcats their fourth 5-star recruit among the Class of 2016.

UA's other 5-star recruits heading into next season are point guard Kobi Simmons, small forward Rawle Alkins and power forward Lauri Markkanen.

Last week, the Wildcats missed out on Josh Jackson, regarded by multiple media outlets as this year's No. 1 overall recruit. Jackson chose Kansas ahead of his two other finalists, UA and Michigan State.

But with the addition of Ferguson, along with the return of 2015 5-star recruit Allonzo Trier, the Wildcats will likely be among the favorites to win next year's national championship.

Next season would be a heck of a time for the Wildcats to advance to their first Final Four since 2001: The 2017 Final Four will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
