Arizona Football Wraps Up Solid 2015 Class


Rich Rodriguez and his Arizona Football program had another great year on the recruiting front. As National Signing Day came to a close, they signed one four-star recruit along with 24 three-star recruits.

Four-star offensive tackle Keenan Walker from Chaparral High School in Scottsdale signed earlier today with a 93 rating according to 247 Sports. Walker is 6-foot-6 and 280 pounds, bringing size to the line.

Walker is the second best tackle in the state of Arizona and 10th nationally. He’s quick off the ball and will be a great asset to the Arizona offensive line in a couple of years or so.

More from Arizona Wildcats

The Wildcats signed another offensive lineman out of Folsom High School in Folsom, California by the name of Cody Creason. Creason is a 6-foot-4, 285 pound offensive guard, helping Folsom to a Division II state championship. He has an 87 rating according to 247 Sports and is ranked 31st nationally among all offensive guards. Creason is very athletic playing football, basketball, and baseball in high school.

Arizona added another great commit in Anthony Fotu from Laney College in Oakland. Fotu is a 6-foot-4, 285 pound defensive tackle and is very powerful off of the line. Because of his explosiveness and experience for two years at Laney, he will start right off the bat and bring his size and quickness to the very good Arizona defensive line.

Among Arizona’s top recruits on the offensive side of the ball, wide receiver Cedric Peterson tops them. He is a very quick but small receiver, only six-foot and 180 pounds. Because of Peterson’s speed, he can easily play as a slot receiver and sweeper.

Peterson is from Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, California. Arizona was in need of receivers and quick athletes so Peterson will be a great asset.

Orlando Bradford is a small but very quick and powerful running back from Cavalry Baptist Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana. Bradford is a three-tar athlete who also plays basketball and football.

At only 5-foot-9 and 195 pounds, he will have to prove himself as a back who will impact the team quickly. Bradford will also make a great kick and punt returner because of his speed and elusiveness.

The Wildcats are looking for another great year in 2015, hoping to make it to another bowl game. Coming off as last years Pac 12 South champions, the Wildcats look to bounce back strong after their 38-20 loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl and look to be one of the four teams to compete in the College Football Playoff.
