Arizona received a commitment from Brown in early April and he will remain as one of the more important players in the class. At 6-foot-3, 260-pounds, brown has the ability to put on some more good weight and be ready to play right away. He fills a need and is a player that Arizona badly wanted. With offers from numerous Pac-12 level schools, Arizona got a good one in brown.

We understand Watson’s school list leading to skepticism, but this is a player the coaching staff went after aggressively. By now you should realize that the coaching staff doesn’t care about other offers and the belief is that Watson is waiting to blow up with an impressive camp circuit, which is why Arizona prioritized him early instead of slow playing him. He has great size at 6-foot-4, 275 pounds and will likely have to get in better shape, but the potential is definitely there.

Arizona offered Leo and Iowa State and UCF soon followed. Those absolutely will not be his only three offers and Leo is a good example of a player that is going to see his recruitment take off once more coaches see his film. He’s huge and relatively new to football, which means there is plenty of room to grow both mentally and physically. Expect Leo to be one of Arizona’s top defensive priorities.

Lima finished last season with 21.5 tackles for loss, including seven sacks. He has offers from Arizona State, Iowa State, Oregon State, and others. In addition, Lime projects as an immediate impact type of guy, which makes him a priority for a school like Arizona that needs major help on the defensive line sooner than later.

Arizona recently offered Scott, but so did much of the country. Florida and Florida State are now involved to go along with West Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and others. It will be difficult to get Scott out of the South, but Arizona is definitely going to try.

One of Young’s earliest offers came from Arizona and now he has an offer from ASU, Tennessee, Louisville, and Nebraska. The Wildcats are actually doing pretty well here and although it is early, Arizona seems in line for an official visit. Young will have three to play two and is graduating in December.
