The 2022 Arizona Football season is quickly approaching, and four more Wildcats have landed on the Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List.
Another day and more preseason accolades have come in for a few more Arizona Football players as four of our current Wildcats have been named to the preseason Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List.
Making news just days ago was that current Wildcats Christian Roland-Wallace, Christian Young, Jalen Harris, and Jacob Cowing were announced to the watchlist for 2022.
“The Reese’s Senior Bowl is considered to be one of college football’s most prestigious college all-star games, as it serves as the first step in the NFL draft process,” according to Arizona Athletics.
Like several other preseason awards and watchlists, Arizona Football will be well-represented this year on the Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List.
The first Wildcat on the list is Jalen Harris and rightfully so. Now a sixth-year senior, Jalen has appeared in 39 games for the Wildcats accumulating 121 total tackles (78 solo) in over five seasons with Arizona.
Heading into 2022, he is one of the presumptive leaders on Arizona’s defense and should be primed for a potentially big year.
Also on the list is Jacob Cowing. A transfer from UTEP, Jacob is considered to be one of the best receivers in the country after amassing 2,595 yards and 13 receptions in 32 games played with the Miners.
And because of his impact on college football, he is also on the Reese’s Bowl Watch List.
Additionally, there is Christian Young. A senior safety, the Houston-area native has come along for the Wildcats in a big way.
Starting in all 12 games last year and appearing in 36 games over his career with the Wildcats, Christian has totaled 106 tackles (55 solo). In 2022, he should be primed for a potentially big year as he too will likely be one of Arizona’s presumptive leaders on defense.
Last on the list is Christian Roland-Wallace. Now a redshirt junior, the Southern California native is arguably Arizona’s best cornerback after appearing in 29 games for the Cats in his career, accumulating 111 tackles (84 solo), with 3.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two interceptions, and nine pass deflections.
Because of his impact on college football, he is also a no-brainer for the Reese’s Bowl Watch List.
