Arizona adds 4 recruits to signing class
TUCSON, Ariz. — The Arizona football program and head coach Kevin Sumlin announced four additions to the 2018 recruiting class. Safety Dayven Coleman, quarterbacks Kevin Doyle and Jamarye Joiner and defensive end Adam Plant join a group of 16 student-athletes announced in December as part of the new early signing period.
“This is a very balanced class with talented players on both sides of the ball,” Sumlin said. “The majority of our players signed in December, but we are excited about today’s additions to what is a group of young men that we are excited about. Our entire staff is looking forward to getting this group to campus and becoming a part of our program and our community.”
The additions Wednesday bring the class to 20 — 11 on offense and nine on defense. The class is comprised of 10 players from California, four from Texas, three from Arizona and one each from Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
Wednesday’s announcements for Doyle and Joiner give the Wildcats a pair of quarterbacks in their 2018 recruiting class. Meanwhile, Coleman adds another versatile athlete in the secondary, while Plant offers size and athleticism for the defensive front.
The 20-player class focused heavily on adding size to the lines on either side of the ball. Over a third of the total class – three offensive linemen and four defensive linemen – will bolster the depth in the trenches.
Among the December signees, three are already enrolled an on campus: Defensive linemen PJ Johnson and Mykee Irving and offensive linemen David Watson.
