The Arizona Football team is gaining steam for the 2021 recruiting class, now picking up yet another commitment, this time from Texas DE, Kevon Garcia.
Who would have thought we would have seen the Arizona Football team see a lot of success on the recruiting trail the past couple weeks? Especially as Texas-based defensive end Kevon Garcia becomes the sixth commitment in the class, and also the third commit in about the last two weeks.
Just as California athlete Cole Batson committed to Arizona yesterday, now Kevon joins the fold as he officially committed to the Wildcats via social media, picking the Cats over an offer from Houston Baptist as well.

Hailing from Dekaney High School in the Houston, TX area, Kevon is currently an unranked prospect in the class of 2021, but will likely be a three-star player in the class when all is said and done.
Standing 6-feet-2-inches and 215 pounds, he is listed as defensive end, but I would like to think Arizona may have plans to use him as a linebacker/ edge rusher potentially.
He is certainly a play maker and based on his stats listed through Maxpreps, he looks like a great addition. Through just a few games listed, Kevon played at multiple positions, accounting for two yards on two carries, one reception for 44 yards, 26 tackles (17 solo), 6.0 tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks and three fumble recoveries.
With Arizona losing so many valuable pieces on defense after this season, adding that kind of production and play making is incredibly important.
And looking at his film there is a lot to like. For starters, because he plays a few different positions, I really like his versatility.
He’s strong, physical and moves incredibly well, showing great burst and explosiveness off the line of scrimmage. While he likely is undersized at this point to play defensive end at the next level, if Arizona continues to go with a 3-4 defense, I really like how Kevon potentially fits as the outside linebacker/ edge rusher.
Just see for yourself!
At Zona Zealots, we’re excited for the addition of Kevon and can’t wait to see what he brings to Tucson! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
