1.Daxx Garman, QB –
Garman was the first commit and it came shortly after the end of the season. As a player that was sure to be pursued by several top programs, Garman committed early in order to eliminate any distractions that may be created in his lone season at Southlake Carroll.
Garman hasn't initially been rated high, but a lot of that has to do with him missing a good chunk of 2009 due to eligibility. In 2010 he has a lot to prove as a senior in his last year.
When he arrives on campus, he should be able to redshirt for a year during Foles' final season. That should allow him to adjust to the speed of the college game and learn the offense. As of right now, he is deemed as the starter of the future, but UA is pursuing another quarterback in the class, so it will be a challenge for Garman, but he is the early favorite to be the Wildcats starter in 2012.
2, Jacob Arzouman, OL –
The Salpointe Catholic product may have to redshirt for a season, but he could be a candidate for the starting center job early in his career.
The offensive line is pretty solid as it is and it has a lot of depth on the outside, but the interior portion of the line could use all the depth it can get. Expect Arzouman to battle once he arrives, but it won't be without competition.
Redhsirt freshman Jake Baratz could be Colin Baxter's replacement at center and Arzouman could find it difficult to beat him out. Still, the Wildcats have a history of moving linemen around and Arzouman could always develop into another position along the line.
3. KaDeem Carey, RB –
While many people expect Carey to come in and make an immediate impact, it isn't going to be quite that simple for Carey. With Keola Antolin, Greg Nwoko, Daniel Jenkins and Kylan Butler slated to be on the roster in 2011, Carey will have to beat out some talented players to earn playing time right off the bat.
Carey is ridiculously talented and will probably see a tremendous amount of time on the field in his college career, but don't be surprised if he has to sit a season to make it happen.
4. Jared Baker, RB –
Baker is an extremely talented and athletic back that, like Carey, will have a tough time seeing the field in his first year and will likely take a redshirt.
When Baker does get his shot though, expect him to be a very effective player in the spread. His speed alone will make him a serious weapon for the offense to utilize and he is very similar to the type of back the Wildcats have been using since switching to the spread offense.
5. Michael Cooper, TE –
Cooper fills a need for Arizona. Outside of Jack Baucus, UA doesn't have a true tight end on the roster. The Wildcats like to have all different types of weapons at their dispense, so adding a player like Cooper only helps the versatility
Cooper may see the field initially, but it depends on what UA is shooting for with its offense. If it wants to used multiple tight ends, he could play early, but if Arizona still wants to utilize all of its talent at wide receiver, then Cooper could redshirt for season.
