With not much recruiting activity going on, the Arizona Football team finally got its first commitment from three-star linebacker, Kolbe Cage!
The dry streak is over! Being the last, Power Five team to not have a commit for 2021, the Arizona Football team finally broke through, receiving a commitment from linebacker, Kolbe Cage!
Meet Kolbe, the 6-foot, 205-pound linebacker that hails all the way from Holy Cross High School in New Orleans, LA.
Already holding offers from Nevada, Southern, Houston Baptist and South Alabama in addition to Arizona, the Louisiana-based linebacker made it official on Tuesday evening, committing to the Wildcats.
With Kolbe aboard, we can now rest a bit easy, as the Cats finally have a commitment for the class of 2021. Additionally, Cage comes in at a position of need, since Arizona will lose Colin Schooler, Tony Fields II, Anthony Pandy and Kylan Wilborn as they all will graduate after this season.
So with that being said, Arizona will need an influx of talent and depth at linebacker for the following season, especially as incoming freshman Jabar Triplett will also be out for the upcoming season as well, due to a torn Achilles.
So what are we getting with Kolbe? Well, at first glance, he looks a bit undersized at the moment, but no worry, there is plenty of time for him to fill out and get bigger before he reaches campus in 2021.
Additionally, he looks to be one hell of a football player. From his film, there is a lot to like as Kolbe will line-up a lot in safety or linebacker, and shows not only to be adequate in his ball pursuing skills, but also in his coverage skills.
Overall, he looks to be a good athlete that can provide good coverage when need be, or load the box against opposing team. He can get sideline-to-sideline pretty smoothly, he shows good quickness overall, has good instincts and motor, and packs a solid punch when he hits the ball carrier.
With some more development, he could be a really solid player at Arizona! Just take a look for yourself!
Anyways, at Zona Zealots, we’re excited for the addition of Kolbe and can’t wait to see what he can bring to Tucson! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
