Deandre Ayton, recognized by ESPN and several other recruiting services as the top high school basketball player in the country, signed his letter of intent to play basketball for the Arizona Wildcats Thursday.

Ayton revealed the signing on Twitter. He attends Hillcrest Academy in Phoenix.

"I'm officially a Wildcat," he said in a tweet. "Mic drop."

Ayton, a center, was born in the Bahamas and lived in San Diego before moving to Phoenix. Ayton will suit up for the Wildcats next season, joining one of the nation's top recruiting classes.

Sierra Vista’s 22nd annual Veterans Day Parade will head down Fry Boulevard from 7th Street to the Veterans Memorial Park entrance on Friday, Nov. 11, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at about 10:30 a.m. The public is invited to view the parade and help honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces. More than 45 groups have signed up to participate. A short public ceremony in Veterans Memorial Park will follow the parade and will include brief remarks by Sierra Vista Mayor Rick Mueller and Army Maj. Gen. John Baker, commanding general of Network Enterprise Technology Command. Fry Boulevard will be closed to through traffic at 8:50 a.m. from 7th street to Avenida Escuela for the duration of the parade. There will also be no through traffic allowed into Veterans Memorial Park during that period. Starting at 7:30 a.m., Wilcox Drive from 7th Street to Lenzner Avenue and Lenzner Avenue from Fry Boulevard to Wilcox Drive will be closed in both directions for parade staging until all participants join the parade route.
