Continuing their hot recruiting streak for 2023, Arizona Football received three more commitments on Wednesday afternoon.
This past weekend was a particularly important one for Arizona Football as the Wildcats hosted several key recruits in the class of 2023 for an official visit.
Naturally, Jedd Fisch and Co. rolled out the red carpet, and as a result, the Wildcats received three commitments from Carter Stoutmire, Lucas Conti, and Tylen Gonzalez in the subsequent days after the visit.
Well, it appears the Cats’ efforts weren’t for naught, as Arizona has now added three more players to the class that visited this past weekend.
Bringing Arizona Football’s commitment total up to 10, the Wildcats are on a roll to start for the class of 2023.
The first to commit yesterday was Gavin Hunter, a 6-foot-2-inch, 190-pound athlete from Mililani High School (Mililani, HI). Picking the Wildcats over offers from Oregon State, San Diego State, and Utah State, this is a kid that is a bit under the radar but appears to be a solid addition for the Cats.
Coming in, he is a two-way player at Mililani High School, however, with his size, it is more likely that he will play safety for the Cats.
He reads the ball well and reacts, he is quick and recovers well in coverage, and he packs a bit of a punch with his hits.
Overall, he should provide some nice depth to the secondary. Here’s a small preview of the Wildcats’ latest addition.
The second commitment to happen yesterday was Kamuela Kaaihuea. A 6-foot-3-inch, 215-pound linebacker from President Theodore Roosevelt High School (Honolulu, HI), Kamuela picked the Wildcats over offers from Army, Hawaii, and Nevada.
Coming in, he too is a bit of an under-the-radar player; however, the Cats were wise to jump in early, as this is a kid that will likely see his recruitment pick up a little bit.
He is a long and athletic player that uses his size well. He will likely be used as more of a hybrid outside linebacker/edge rusher in defensive coordinator Johnny Nansen’s defense. Overall, he is the No. 126 rated linebacker and is the No. 9 overall player from the state of Hawaii.
He should provide some nice depth to the defense as well, and there is a bit to like with this kids’ film. Here’s a small preview of Kamuela.
The last and final commitment of the day was from Dominic Lolesio. A 6-foot-4-inch, 230-pound defensive lineman from Long Beach Poly High School in Long Beach, CA, Dominic picked the Wildcats over offers from Colorado and San Jose State.
Another under-the-radar recruit; however, Dominic hails from the talent-rich high school of Long Beach Poly.
Overall, he is a dominant and aggressive pass rusher that uses his size and length well to shed blocks and create disruption in the backfield. This is a kid with a big frame that can add more size, and already he plays with a high motor that should help the Wildcats immensely.
The Wildcats were smart to jump in early in this recruitment and it looks like it has paid off as he should compliment Johnny Nansen’s defense well. Here’s a quick look at the Wildcats’ latest edge rusher!
These are just the newest Wildcats to commit to Arizona, and there is still a possibility the Wildcats will have another player or two announce this week.
Overall, the Wildcats’ recruiting class is shaping up to be a rather solid one, and hopefully, the momentum will continue to carry over in the coming months!
