The Arizona Wildcats and head coach Jedd Fisch have landed four-star receiver recruit Tetairoa McMillan, the highest ranked recruit in the football program’s history.

McMillan is the fifth-highest ranked receiver and 46th ranked prospect overall in his class, according to 247Sports.com. The addition now ranks Arizona’s 2022 recruiting class as the second best in the Pac-12 and 23rd nationally.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect decommitted from Oregon after former Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal and receivers coach Bryan McClendon left for Miami.

Fisch took his excitement to social media with a message in the sand of his new commit’s nickname.

McMillan recorded 179 catches, 2640 yards and 34 touchdowns in 27 games over his three years in high school, according to MaxPreps. He totaled 23 offers from schools like Arizona State, Florida, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas and USC.

He will join his high school teammate Noah Fifita, who is also committed to the Wildcats as a 2022 three-star quarterback.
