Wildcats add 3 football commitments
Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff have added three commitments to the Wildcats recruiting class of 2012.
The latest additions are Chandler Basha wide receiver Nate Phillips, Tempe Marcos de Niza wide receiver Paul Elvira and Loganville, Ga., defensive end/tight end Jack Banda.
Phillips and Elvira were offered scholarships after attending a 7-on-7 camp at Arizona in early June. Phillips (5-feet-9, 160 pounds) caught 72 passes for 1,265 yards as a junior at Basha and projects as a slot receiver. Elvira (6-1, 170) caught 48 passes for 774 yards).
Elvira is a teammate of running back Mauriece Lee, who committed to Arizona in April. A third Marcos player, defensive back Priest Willis, is regarded as the top prospect in the state by Scout.com.
Grayson (6-3, 220) plays for Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia.
The three additions bring the number of commitments in Arizona’s 2013 class to 10.
