Five losses in a row, including one against arch rival Arizona State and a 26-point thrashing in the Alamo Bowl against Oklahoma State was not the way the Arizona Wildcats wanted to finish their 2010 season. Arizona’s 4-5 conference record was their worst since 2007, coming as a surprise to many after finishing second in the Pac-10 in 2009.
On top of the mediocre season, a handful of impact players on the offensive line, backfield, and defensive line graduated leaving holes in the 2011 roster.
Just as it seemed Arizona Football was on the rise and would become a consistent contender for the now Pac-12, the tent collapsed and left everyone struggling to figure out what happened.
In order for the Wildcats to return to their 2009 form, key areas of both sides of the ball must be rebuilt. These five 2011 recruits could be precisely what the team in Tucson needs.
