The 20th ranked running back in the class chose the Wildcats over Louisville, San Jose State, UCLA and Duke, according to 247Sports.
He played high school ball at national powerhouse St. John Bosco in Southern California, where he posted 2,675 total yards in 30 games over three seasons, according to MaxPreps.
The 5-foot-8, 175-pound running back averaged 12.4 yards per carry and 17.4 yards per reception in his senior year.
Luke now joins one of the best Arizona recruiting classes in team history that includes four-star wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan and three-star quarterback Noah Fifita.
Fisch’s program has the second-highest ranked 2022 recruiting class in the Pac-12 behind Stanford by 247Sports.
After a 1-11 2021 season, the arrow seems to be pointed up for Arizona.
