Signing Day Preview

Brad Allis

Arizona can sign as many as 11 players in the class, but look to struggle to get that accomplished. In light of two recent decommits, the Wildcats have just four committed players in the class to go along with the 12 who have already signed letters of intent in December.

Four Commits:

Frank Brown – RB – 6-0, 180, Sterling HS/Houston, TX SIGNED

Derick Mourning – OLB – 6-3, 210, Paetow Hs/Katy, TX 

Leif Magnuson – OL – 6-4, 270, Bethlehem Catholic/Canada SIGNED

Jabar Triplett – OLB – 6-0, 215, Southern University Lab School/Baton Rouge, LA SIGNED

Arizona also has two transfers already enrolled in DT Aaron Blackwell (New Mexico) and Brendan Schooler (Oregon).

The Wildcats have hosted a handful of players the past few weeks and are waiting on their decisions. Mourning committed on his visit over the weekend.

Jamari Stewart, a LB from Florida, is expected to choose from Mississippi State and Arizona on Tuesday, but most feel the SEC school has the advantage and it would be a shock if he does not pick the Bulldogs. (He did choose MSU) Eddie Watkins also visited on January 25 and the defensive end from Alabama will choose between Arizona, Missouri and West Virginia. (WVU got the nod) DE Paris Shand also visited that weekend and the Wildcats are believed to be in good shape for his services. (He will announce on Saturday)

DE Nusi Malani visited last weekend and could still be in the mix. (Malani chose Virginia) Arizona hosted ASU commit Will Shaffer two weeks ago but he is not expected to flip to the Wildcats. One name to look out for is Illinois’ Shontrail Key. Key had a number of 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction made in his favor over the past 24 hours. (Key picked Arizona)

Another player with crystal ball picks is Tacoma’s Jaylen Clark, though Clark’s picks were made in early December. Clark could be a replacement for Alphonse Oywak, a fellow Washington DB who decommitted.

They will try to add a few JUCO's or grad transfers. May wait on academics for the JUCOs or guys who are not happy after spring ball.

They landed two players today who were not verbally committed. There are 2-3 more that they are in decent shape for. Assuming two actually sign, then they would bring in 8 and have three open spots to add transfers or JCs.

Doesn't sound good. How many spots will Arizona have, when all is said and done, Brad?
