Arizona Lands Linebacker DJ Fryar

Arizona added another defensive player to its already defense-heavy 2021 recruiting class today.

The commitment comes from 6-foot-3 and 205-pound inside linebacker DJ Fryar from Tacoma (Wash.) Steilacoom High School. Fryar is listed as a three-star inside linebacker, according to 247 Sports.

Arizona coach Kevin Sumlin has 12 commitments for the 2021 recruiting cycle.

Fryar chose Arizona over Washington State, Boise State and Fresno State, among others.

He is the fourth linebacker of the class and the second recruit from Washington. Nine of the 12 players in the class are on defense.
