The 2014 Arizona high school football class is one of the strongest in recent memory. On Saturday, our Pros2Preps.com recruiting insider Jason Jewell (@Jason247Scout) reported that the University of Arizona Wildcats landed one of the top players in that class.
Tucson Salpointe Catholic wide receiver, defensive back, and backup quarterback Cameron Denson announced on Saturday that he is going to end his recruitment early and commit to play in his home town for coach Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona Wildcats.
Denson, a four-star recruit according to Scout.com, becomes the first Wildcat commit in the 2014 class. He was “Mr. Everything” for the Lancers in 2012 as he had over 1,000 rushing yards, just under 600 receiving years, 20 total touchdowns, and also took over at quarterback after an injury to teammate Andy Cota, throwing for 408 yards and three touchdowns. He also lined up on the defensive side of the ball and had two interceptions plus returned two touchdowns on special teams.
The Wildcats made news before Saturday as they officially offered another 2014 gem in defensive back Tyler Whiley of Chaparral. The Wildcats have already offered many of the top players in the 2014 class including Kyle Allen (Desert Mountain quarterback) and his teammate Mark Andrews (wide receiver), as well as Mountain Pointe’s Jalen Brown, who reportedly has a lot of interest in the Wildcats.
There will be more on Denson’s commitment plus the latest in Arizona recruiting from Jason Jewell and I on the Recruiting Roundup on Tuesday.
