Cats add another for 2007

Arizona coaches have done a great job the past few years finding quality players after signing day. Some have panned out and some have made no impact, but there is no doubt that the Wildcat coaches are not content to stop recruiting once the February signing day passes.

Arizona has added another player to the 2007 class. El Camino College defensive back Joseph Perkins has signed a letter of intent to play for the Wildcats.

"Yes, I signed with Arizona," Perkins said via text message.

A safety at El Camino, Perkins played in 11 games and had 47 tackles. He also had seven interceptions for 70 yards to earn 1st Team All-Mission Conference honors.

A 6-2, 195-pound freshman, Perkins played high school football at Gardena High School.

"Great range and athletic ability to cover a lot of ground," stated his bio on, the official site for El Camino College. "Got better as the season went on and grew into an all-conference safety. Track athlete in hurdles and very fast. Best football is ahead for him."

Perkins becomes the second player from El Camino to commit to the Cats. Linebacker Vuna Tuihalamaka signed with the team in February.

He continues a Wildcat trend of uncovering prospect after signing day. The most successful of which was defensive end Jonathan Turner.
