NLI- Arizona Talent Staying in the Pac-12

The 2020 Arizona high school football season is in the books. Now, seniors look toward their future and the next chapter in life as they continue their education and football career. Today is a day that dreams are made of. Most football players that step on a field as a freshman envision the day they get to sign with their dream college to continue their goal of one day being in the NFL.

National Letter of Intent day. A day filled with happiness as so many get one step closer to their dream. Many of those dreams were realized right here in the valley of the sun as 14 local high school football players chose to continue on and play in the Pac-12. Families, friends, and fans don’t have to go too far to watch their favorite Arizona baller.

The Pac-12 did a nice job of securing the deep talent that the desert has to offer. Oregon with the most in the state with four signings. The Ducks really took advantage of diving into the pool here in the state. 

I spoke with Chandler’s Brandon Buckner about his commitment to Oregon, and he told me,  ” the coaching staff really made me feel at home. They have a great plan for me … for my education and for my football career.” 

One chapter closes and another one opens for all of these young men.
