Cats land two commitments on big recruiting weekend

It was a big recruiting weekend for the Arizona football team. The Wildcats held their sophomore/junior day, as well as hosting several seniors-to-be. They appear to have made a good impression on several players, as well as landing a pair of commitments.

The first player to commit on the day was Eddie Siaumau, a 6-2, 210-pound safety, who some believe could also develop into a linebacker. He hails from Leone (American Samoa) and committed while on a visit to Tucson.

Siaumau is a 247Composite 3-star prospect and a Polynesian Bowl selection.

247Sports national recruiting director Brandon Huffman called him a “big time safety” in a tweet on Saturday.

About 30 minutes later 3-star cornerback Maurice Gaines announced his commitment to the Wildcats. Gaines is a 3-star corner from St. Thomas More HS/Oakdale, CT. Like Siaumau, Gaines was on campus over the weekend.

It was a busy recruiting weekend for the Wildcats, as they hosted over 20 prospects. Among those visiting:

Quintin Somerville DE – Scottsdale/Saguaro
Jason Harris DE – Gilbert, AZ/Higley
Dominick Mastro RB – Scottsdale/Notre Dame Prep
Noah Nelson OL – Gilbert, AZ/Williams Field
Kelee Ringo CB – Scottsdale/Saguaro
Connor Butt ATH – Scottsdale/Notre Dame Prep
Parker Lewis K – Scottsdale/Saguaro (earned offer on visit)
Steven Ortiz DB – Goodyear, AZ/Desert Edge
Benjamin Roy OL – Goodyear, AZ/Desert Edge
Cade Bennett OL – Scottsdale/Notre Dame Prep
Chris Roland ATH – Palmdale. CA/William Knight HS

In addition to Ringo, five other Saguaro prospects were on hand, as were seven Peoria-Centennial players.
