Wildcats Land Three Star Running Back from Philly

Senior-to-be William Parks may be starting something within the Arizona Wildcats program. 

The Philadelphia product fell in love with the University of Arizona and now years later, is thriving at safety and expects to be one of the top defensive players for the Wildcats in 2015.

On Saturday, a new product from Philly made the trip across country and it appears he too has fallen in love with the campus and the program and announced while on a visit in Tucson that he has committed to the Arizona Wildcats.

Tyliek Raynor is a three-star running back according to Scout.com from Imhotep Charter High School in Philadelphia. He is estimated at running a 4.55 40 yard dash and in watching him on film, you can see the explosion he has in the open field. The 5-10, 180 pound back has the ability to extend plays with his speed and elusiveness and gets it done running between the tackles. Something Wildcats saw from Nick Wilson at running back last season.

Raynor had eight total offers including Arizona upon making his commitment. Interest also came from Maryland, Syracuse and Temple.  

The Wildcats now have three running backs for their class of 2016. The other two include Sean Riley from Southern California who is an athlete and may also get looked at as a receiver as well as Russell Hamilton from Georgia.
