Adia Barnes continues to dominate the recruiting trail. The Arizona head coach reeled in another highly-touted recruit this week, as five-star international prospect Valeria Trucco committed to the Wildcats. The 6-foot-3 forward becomes the second five-star recruit in UA’s 2018 class, along with 6-foot-2 forward Cate Reese, who is the No. 12 prospect in the class and the highest-ranked recruit Arizona has ever landed.

Trucco, from Italy, is rated as the No. 1 post player in Europe and is a member of the Italian National Team. She chose Arizona over California and Georgia Tech and was heavily recruited by UA assistant coach Salvo Coppa, per PJ Brown of the Arizona Daily Star. Coppa, Barnes’ husband, hails from Italy himself.
