Pac-12 Football Weekly Recruiting Roundup: Arizona Dominates Week with 6 Commits
Every Wednesday we'll take a trip around the Pac-12 to see how recruiting is panning out. Whose class is shaping up nicely and who has a lot of work left to do? Your weekly recruiting roundup will help answer just that.
What a week it has been on the Arizona recruiting trail. Six commits from DT Tony Mekari, 2-star ATH RJ Morgan, 2-star QB Brandon Cox, 3-star LB Ryan Dunn, 3-star ATH Devin Holiday and 3-star TE Calvin Allen. The Cats are on their way to filling their quota before the 2012 season ever arrives. Arizona currently has 19 commitments, with nine of those coming within a span of just eight days.
“This class is going to surprise the Pac-12,” Dunn told WildcatSportsReports.com. “It is going to be a new destiny or phase of Arizona football.”
Three commits for Oregon this week as they picked up K Matt Wogan, 3-star ATH Chris Seisay and 3-star WR Darren Carrington. The most interesting on this list is Seissay, who was originally committed to Boise State. Once the Ducks made an offer, Seisay changed his mind.
"Everything about it made it the place for me," Seisay told DuckTerritory.com. "The academics, facilities, coaching and success couldn't be beat."
Last fall, 4-star LB Peter Kalambayi had his sights set on Clemson. Things change though, as the 6'3" 235-lb athlete has committed to Stanford. Kalambayi is ranked No. 80 nationally among seniors by Rivals. Joining him will be recruit TE Eric Cotton who also recently committed.
Washington State continues to add more recruits to its 2013 class with commits from 3-star RB Gerard Wicks, TE Cole Madison and LB Ivan McLennan. Wicks rushed for 11 touchdowns in 2011 and averaged nearly eight yards per carry.
Arizona State, California, UCLA and USC all received one commit over the previous week. Great news for each program, as each recruit has 3-stars or higher: 3-star TE Grant Martinez for the Sun Devils; 3-star TE Ray Hudson for the Bears; 3-star LB Myles Jack for the Bruins; and 4-star WR Sebastian Larue for the Trojans.
No decommits this week, as it seems the Pac-12 is receiving decommits from other conferences instead. Not a bad position to be in.
According to Daily News USC beat writer Scott Wolf, there have been quite a few notable out-of-state players on the Trojans' campus this week for the Rising Stars camp. Those seen are defensive end Jason Hatcher of Louisville, Kentucky, safety Jayron Kearse of Fort Myers, Fla., and defensive end Dee Liner of Muscle Shoals, Ala. Liner is currently committed to Auburn.
Looks like UCLA is on its way to a a star-studded football team, per the Los Angeles Times. The university has officially made an offer to Cordell Broadus, son of rapper Snoop Dog. Broadus is only a sophomore, though, so it's his commitment most likely won't come any time soon. He would join Justin Combs, son of Sean "Diddy" Combs, if he did.
