Arizona football recruiting class moves into EPSN’s top 50 rankings

Dec 4, 2021, 5:30 PM

Finishing at the bottom of the Pac-12 standing has not deterred Arizona from locking in its top recruiting classes in the last three years.

The Wildcats snuck into the top 50 in ESPN’s latest college football recruiting rankings and knocked fellow Pac-12 squad USC off the list.

“Assembling his first full class, Jedd Fisch has the Wildcats in line for a stronger finish than a year ago. Among the worst rush defenses in the country, they have two strong front-seven pickups in (Sterling) Lane and high three-star Tyler Martin,” ESPN’s Craig Haubert wrote in the piece.

Arizona also boasts two local commitments from Hamilton High School in guard Grayson Stovall and defensive end Russell Davis II.

Stovall is the top ranked offensive player in the class for the Wildcats.

Arizona’s recruiting class ranks sixth out of the 12 teams in the conference.

In 2020, ESPN ranked Arizona’s recruiting class 70th overall while the program fell out of the top 75 in 2021.
