Arizona Wildcats football picks up two commitments this weekend

Arizona adds size up front; athleticism in secondary

The bad news for Arizona Wildcats coach Kevin Sumlin is that his team came up short 31-30 at UCLA on Saturday night to drop to 3-5 on the season. The good news: He picked up a couple of commitments this weekend.

He is going after size and experience along both lines, so the commitment Saturday night of Ahina "Rocky" Aitogi -- a 6-foot-7, 360-pound offensive tackle from Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College makes perfect sense. Arizona had offered him a scholarship on Tuesday; he committed during the game at UCLA.

Aitogi, originally from Kona, Hawaii, is not yet rated by 247Sports or Rivals.com. He initially signed with Long Beach City College but did not play, and he is listed with freshman eligibility on Fort Scott's roster.

And on Sunday morning, three-star safety Jaxen Turner from Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, Calif., committed to the Cats. He is rated No. 888 overall nationally in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the 86th-best player in California.

Turner, also a basketball standout, held offers Arizona State, Washington State, Utah, Cal, Boise State and others, according to 247Sports.

Turner's announcement was quite the production:

Meanwhile, the current centerpiece of Sumlin's class -- quarterback Grant Gunnell of St. Pius X in Houston, set the Texas state high school record for passing yards on Friday night. He is up to 14,577 yards, breaking the mark of 14,408, set by Hunter Lile from 2011-14.
