The Arizona Wildcats football team received another three-star recruit for the class of 2023 on Friday.

Defensive back Arian Parish declared his commitment to play football in Tucson next year following his senior season at Katy High School.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound safety marks the 11th hard commit and sixth three-star recruit for Arizona’s 2023 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports.

Parish is also the fourth defensive back and second safety of the class.

The high school senior also had offers from 17 other schools, including the likes of Pac-12 schools USC and Colorado.

Parish also received offers from Power-Five Conference schools Arkansas, Nebraska, Purdue, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State and Duke.

The Wildcats’ 2023 recruiting class is ranked No. 28 in the country with one four-star recruit and six three-star recruits.

Those metrics currently place Arizona behind USC, Colorado and Oregon in the Pac-12, as the Trojans are the only school in the conference to have a five-star commit for the class of 2023 — and they have two.

Nationally, the Wildcats are ranked ahead of LSU (No. 31), Michigan (No. 32), Texas A&M (No. 33) and Alabama (No. 34), with the Wolverines and Crimson Tide having made the 2022 College Football Playoff.

Should Arizona continue to recruit at this level, expect to see more GIF tweets from head coach Jedd Fisch.
