Arizona coach Jedd Fisch is busy rounding out the 2021 recruiting class and currently has 15 players signed to play for the new staff.
When hired, Fisch emphasized that a focus would be on in-state recruiting that the program hasn’t seen since before the Kevin Sumlin tenure.
Fisch landed another in-state recruit on Monday in Ammon Allen, a 6-foot-2, 202-pound outside linebacker out of Gilbert Highland High School.
