Arizona quarterback recruit makes biggest jump in Rivals’ new rankingsby Anthony Gimino on Dec. 04, 2012, under Arizona football, Arizona football recruiting, Sports
Arizona Wildcats quarterback recruit Anu Solomon made the biggest jump of any high school senior in the postseason rankings released by Rivals.com on Tuesday.
Solomon, who won his fourth state title with Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High School last weekend, went from unranked to No. 131 in the Rivals.com Top 250.
He passed for more than 10,000 yards as a four-year starter, throwing for 138 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
Solomon is the only UA recruit in the Rivals.com 250.
Arizona has 27 committed players, including JC transfer quarterback Jesse Scroggins, who spent his first two seasons at USC.
Scroggins was on an official visit last weekend, as was outside linebacker Myke Tavarres from College of the Siskiyous. Tavarres, a long-time Arizona target, committed to Arkansas in the summer but has been keeping his options open while the Razorbacks look for a coach.
The Hogs on Tuesday went with Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema.
Tavarres told WildcatSportsReport.com — one of our TucsonCitizen.com partners — that he will pick among Arkansas, Arizona and Boise State. He is a mid-year transfer.
Another recruit in town last weekend was mammoth offensive lineman Aaron Cochran from Bulach Colony in Atwater, Calif. The 6-8, 360-pound senior is also considering Cal, Oklahoma, Nebraska and perhaps Washington, according to WildcatSportsReport.com
“People look at me and don’t think I can move,” Cochran told WildcatSportsReport.com. “Hopefully after watching me they see what I can do. Just don’t judge me by how I look.”
In other recruiting news, three players committed to the Wildcats made the Arizona Football Coaches Association all-state team. They are Tempe Marcos de Niza running back Mauriece Lee, Marcos de Niza receiver Paul Elvira and Chandler Basha receiver Nate Phillips.
