Saguaro Athlete Xander Werner Breaks Down Top Four

Saguaro’s Xander Werner is among the most versatile high school football in Arizona last year.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound athlete can play quarterback, tight end and H-back for the Sabercats. Last year, Werner notched a passing touchdown as a quarterback, three rushing touchdowns and four receiving touchdowns as he bounced around positions. 

Multiple colleges love Werner’s versatility, but he recently narrowed his list to Air Force, Army, Hawaii and Texas State. 

“Some schools see me as a real mismatch,” Werner said. “Some schools see me as a guy who can make an impact early that could be a three or four-year guy that could potentially go on to the NFL. Those four schools see a lot in me, that’s the one thing I kind of took away, especially the education that all four of them could give me and just how unique they are.”

As it stands right now, Army has offered him as a quarterback and wide receiver while Air Force, Hawaii and Texas State have offered him as a tight end/H-back.

Werner discusses preparing to help the Sabercats wherever he can this year and why those four schools jumped out to him in his recruitment in the video above.
