Arizona added its whopping 19th football commitment for the Class of 2017 on Monday night, the most of any Power 5 school, and it’s not even July 1.
Warren Jackson, a three-star wide receiver from Bishop Alemany (Mission Hills, Calif.) made his announcement on Twitter. Jackson spent the last two seasons at Redondon Union before transferring to Alemany for his senior year.
Commitments are non-binding until players sign their National Letter of Intent next February.
The 6-5 1/2 Jackson is the fifth wide receiver in the class — all of whom are six foot or taller.
Western Michigan has 22 commits, Houston has 18. Northwestern, Mississippi State and Tennessee each have 17.
Arizona has the top-ranked class in the Pac-12 right now, although much of that is due to volume.
“The top class in the Pac-12 would not be surprising for basketball, but it is quite surprising for football,” Scout.com national recruiting director Brandon Huffman said. “A lot of schools will start filling up their class and then their class is done and they are not adding higher rating kids to their class. That’s why you might see power programs not in top 10 right now but will see them later on. They know it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
