Wisconsin-GM Bradley Bozeman and Wisconsin-Arizona State head coach Mark Few have been keeping a close eye on Arizona State coach Sean Miller.
Miller is a former Badgers assistant and is currently the head coach of the Badgers men’s basketball team.
Bozemen has been a frequent visitor to Arizona State.
On Friday, the Wildcats and Badgers will take on each other for the first time since 2009.
Bozeman has been watching the Wildcats for some time.
He has seen the program grow from a Division II program to one that has a national championship in front of its home fans.
Miller will likely be the biggest attraction to Arizona on the recruiting trail.
He was a three-time all-American and three-year letterman at Arizona.
Miller has built a program that is nationally recognized for its academic success and is considered one of the top programs in the Pac-12.
The two-time Big Ten Conference Player of the Year is ranked as the top player in the nation by ESPN.com and the No. 7 overall prospect in the state of Arizona by 247Sports.
Miller is also a coach that is known for his ability to recruit.
He is known to have recruited a top-100 recruit in Kevin Garnett, who is a six-time All-Star.
He helped the Wildcats to a Big Ten championship in 2014.
Miller has also recruited some of the country’s top talent.
He recently recruited Wisconsin standout J.J. Frazier to the Badger program.
Frazier is the No 1 overall player in Wisconsin history and the fourth-best player in program history.
Miller’s recruiting efforts have been particularly impressive in recent years.
The Badgers have ranked in the top 10 in recruiting rankings in the past two years, and Miller has been the beneficiary of a number of high-profile recruiting classes that have resulted in top-20 talent for the program.
On Friday, Miller will be joined by Wisconsin head coach Chris Holtmann, who has been at Wisconsin for four seasons.
They will meet for the fifth time this season and it is the first game between the two coaches since 2010.
The last time that was the case was in 2013, when the Badgs defeated the Wildcats 77-61.
