RELATED: Five-star recruit Aaron Gordon commits to the Arizona Wildcats

For the second consecutive season, Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller will be bringing in two McDonald’s All-Americans in the same recruiting class.

Miller signed Mickey D’s All-Americans Brandon Ashley and Grant Jerrett in last year’s recruiting class, and he added Aaron Gordon to the commitment list Tuesday morning after signing Rondae Hollis-Jefferson in the fall.

Until last season, Arizona had never brought in multiple McDonald’s All-Americans in the same class.

Hassan Adams and Ndudi Ebi each signed in the 2002 class, but Ebi went straight to the pros. Mike Bibby and Loren Woods were both McDonald’s All-Americans in 1996, but Woods didn’t arrive in Tucson until after his transfer from Wake Forest.

This is the 36th year of the McDonald’s All-American Game, and 21 players from the game have signed with or played at Arizona.

Here is the full list:

Player Year High School
Craig McMillan 1984 Coverdale, Coverdale, Calif.
Sean Elliott 1985 Cholla, Tucson
Brian Williams 1987 St. Monica Catholic, Santa Monica, Calif.
Chris Mills 1988 Fairfax, Los Angeles

Loren Woods 1996 Cardinal Ritter College Prep, St. Louis
Richard Jefferson 1998 Moon Valley, Phoenix
