The time has come for Kevin Sumlin’s third recruiting class to sign, starting with today’s early-period National Signing Date. After two losing seasons without bowl berths, and two losses to instate rival ASU, much is expected of Sumlin to turn things around, and that starts with recruiting.
Coaching hires for defensive coordinator, linebackers coach and defensive line coach have not been announced. That might occur Friday during a scheduled press conference at 2 p.m.
The following are social media reactions of today’s signings:

The QB is in.
Gilbert High’s Will Plummer makes his commitment official with Arizona. He was the first member of the Wildcats’ 2020 class after giving the program his pledge back in January. Don’t sleep on his chances of getting some early playing time at UA. https://t.co/7vFQGBIz8C

DB KHARY CRUMP JR.
Khary Crump apparently has a flair for the dramatic. Despite committing n April, the 3-star California CB officially chose Arizona on Wednesday. https://t.co/fOEDX3YppY

It always sounded like it would go this way, but a big addition nonetheless for Arizona as it is able to hold onto the commitment of SoCal defensive back Khary Crump. He stuck with the Wildcats over Oregon State, BYU and San Diego State today. https://t.co/smz5fAR9Gm
DL DION WILSON JR.
Congrats to Ethan Saunders and Dion Wilson on Signing your contracts to play football at Cal and the University of Arizona. Orange Vista High School is very proud of you @DionxGuccii @s24_ethan @OVHSPrincipal @OrangeVistaASB @OVHS_ATHLETICS @CallMeEPJ pic.twitter.com/JboSLscQsu

Dion Wilson Jr. is a much-needed big body for Arizona to plug into its underperforming defensive line https://t.co/m5khT7U1pA
