Jedd Fisch and his staff continue to add to what appears to be the best recruiting class Arizona has put together with high-profile all-purpose back Rayshon “Speedy” Luke confirming that he has signed with the Wildcats.

Luke, of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, already signed his national letter of intent last month but wanted to keep his pledge publicly secret until Saturday’s Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

Luke, 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds, earned his “Speedy” nickname because of his track times, including running the 100-meter dash in nearly 10 seconds.

He had a 22-yard catch-and-run touchdown and later scored on a 64-yard sprint untouched to the end zone in the All-American Bowl for the West team. His dynamic play merited him the Most Valuable Player award of the game that featured many high school All-Americans.

In 10 games with St. John Bosco this season, Luke rushed for 944 yards on 76 carries (12.4 yards per carry) with 10 touchdowns.

He received offers from Louisville, San Jose State, ASU, Florida, and Boston College among others.

The 22nd commitment in the class, Luke is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and four-star by 247 Sports.

His signing gives Arizona four four-star and one five-star recruit according to 247 Sports.

The five-star recruit is WR Tetairoa “T-Mac” McMillan of Anaheim (Calif.).

The four-star recruits are also all from California: TE Keyan Burnett of Anaheim (Calif.), DE Sterling Lane of Westlake Village (Calif.) and DB Ephesians Prysock of Mission Hills (Calif.)
