Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats have made a big splash in recruiting this weekend as 4-star offensive tackle, Keenan Walker, verbally committed to the the program after his unofficial visit. Walker hails form Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, the same high school as quarterback Connor Brewer, receiver DaVontê Neal, and current assistant coach Charlie Ragle, who was the head coach at Chaparral just a few years back. Ragle served as the main recruiter for Walker throughout the process and with offers from Ohio State, Oregon, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Texas and USC, Coach Rodriguez and gang have proved yet again that they can compete for the top recruits in the country.

This is a huge pick up for the battle of in-state recruits, which is starting to shift in favor of the Wildcats. Of their 5 recruits in the 2015 class, 3 are from Arizona, whereas Arizona State has only managed to pull in one high school recruit from their own backyard. Walker comes in as the 2nd ranked recruit in Arizona and 97th overall in the nation. Standing in at 6-6 and 280 pounds, Walker is definitely a guy you want by your side.

Arizona also had 4-star quarterback Brady White on an unofficial visit this weekend. White is the 4th ranked quarterback in the country and also holds offers from Arizona State, Louisville, Nebraska, Penn State and more. Expect the Wildcats to continue to snag some OKG’s (Our Kinda Guy’s) for 2015.
