Recruiting Analysis: Wide Receiver

Arizona is continuing to recruit at every position. Read on to see which two wide receivers we fell are the best fit and why.

When we take a look at the 2016 recruiting class, there are a handful of players that we see as good fits with Arizona. The following is a look at the wide receiver position:

Arizona currently has plenty of depth, but the Wildcats often use five receivers and the coaches have made no secret that ideally the rotation would be a legit two deep.

Cayleb Jones is likely to be gone after this season and David Richards is graduating. Add that to the fact that Samajie Grant, Trey Griffey, and Nate Phillips will be seniors in two seasons and it makes sense that the coaching staff goes after a handful of wide receivers in this class.

Ideal Situation:

Although Arizona has quite a bit of work to do, Harry is one of the best receivers in the west and would fit in perfectly with what the Wildcats like to do on offense.

Harry is long and athletic while being a good enough football player to probably be successful on both sides of the ball.

With Jones and Richards leaving, Harry would be able to come in and be the bigger receiver target, as he stands at 6-foot-3. When you have a player as talented as Harry, there just really aren’t any negatives from Arizona’s perspective.

Arizona recently offered Taylor-Yamanoha and probably leads for him, although he is going to take a few other visits.

He is another receiver that has good height and athleticism to the point where he could also play safety.

Figuring Taylor-Yamanoha continues to improve on the little technique aspects of his game, there is little reason to believe that he wouldn’t be able to contribute early in his career at Arizona.
