3 recruits join Wildcats at semester break
High school quarterback Daxx Garman, junior college punter Kyle Dugandzic and prep lineman Saneilia Fuimaono have been admitted on scholarships for classes at the University of Arizona for the spring semester.
Garman, who starred as a junior at Jones, Okla., High School, transferred to noted Southlake Carroll Senior High School in the metropolitan Dallas area for his senior year but did not play after an appeal to the state's football governing body over his residency was denied. As a junior at Jones, Garman, 6-2, 185, completed 134 of 210 passes for 2,107 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Dugandzic earned first-team All-Northern Conference honors as a sophomore at Ventura Community College in Agoura Hills, Calif., last season. He averaged 38.2 yards on 57 kicks. Dugandzic, 5-11, 185, is expected to replace four-year punter Keenyn Crier.
Fuimaono, of Punahou High School in Kaneohe, Hawaii, signed a letter of intent with Arizona last February but did not attend the UA in fall 2010. He will count as a member of the 2011 recruiting class.
Fuimaono, 6-2, 275, will compete for play along the defensive front as an interior tackle. He was an all-state and all-region player at defensive end and a star wrestler at Punahou.
They join Arizona mid-year junior college recruits Addison Bachman, an offensive lineman from Citrus College in California, and tight end Drew Robinson of Snow College in Utah.
