Is local recruiting on the rise for Arizona Football with Treyson Bourguet commit?

As Arizona Football gains yet another commitment for 2022, does the addition of local quarterback, Treyson Bourguet mean local recruiting is on the rise?

If you’re an Arizona Football fan, Wednesday was certainly a good day, especially as the Wildcats have added yet another commitment for 2022. This time it’s local quarterback Treyson Bourguet.

A standout at local Salpointe Catholic High School from just up the road of Arizona, Treyson decided to join the fold for 2022, just a day after the Wildcats also received a commitment from wide receiver, Kyion Grayes II.

Making his decision via social media, Treyson decided to shut his recruitment down, picking the Wildcats despite also having an offer from Vanderbilt so far.

Standing 6-feet-2-inches and 185 pounds, Treyson is currently rated as a three-star quarterback in the class and is the No. 16 overall player in the state of Arizona However, make no mistake, the addition of Treyson is a big one.

For one, he becomes the second commitment for 2022 and more importantly is a local recruit. As it stands, Arizona has seen its struggles in recruiting local talent, however, with the additions of Kyion and Treyson, that seems to certainly buck the trend that Arizona doesn’t recruit well locally.

Now while there’s a long ways to go until 2022, this is a great start to the class and perhaps could be a trend that Arizona may start to gain more momentum within the state.

Which brings me to my next point. For those that don’t know, Treyson is a well-liked and respected kid, just as his brothers were too, as they played locally at local Marana High School and Salpointe Catholic High School respectively.

His success speaks for itself among Arizona High School football players, and because Treyson is a standout on the powerhouse Tucson Turf Elite passing league team, he is well-connected.

Following his commitment today, Treyson made his intentions known that he wants to help Arizona not only recruit local talent, but show kids that it’s okay to be a local player and want to stay in-state.

Heck, Arizona is doing well so-far with local players from Tucson Turf Elite, adding Stevie Rocker, Jr. just weeks ago, in addition to now adding Tresyon and Kyion.

As we said, he is a standout at Salpointe, and is a very polished kid, despite just now heading into his junior season.

Appearing in seven games with the Lancers last season, Treyson threw for 805 yards while completing 45 of 68 passes (66.2 percent), with 13 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

He’s a sturdy kid with good playmaking ability, good football IQ and a strong and active arm.

Treyson is deceptively quick, showing great elusiveness in the pocket, he does a great job at keeping his eyes downfield and doesn’t seem to frantic, playing with a lot of confidence for a kid his age.

He’s a young player, but plays beyond on his years and its impressive to see on tape! Just watch for yourself!

At Zona Zealots, we’re excited about the addition of Treyson and can’t wait to see him step foot on campus. As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
