Arizona football recruiting: Wildcats add three to defensive backfield

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats added South Florida transfer Jarvis McCall, safety Rodney Carr and corner Jace Whittaker this week.

Arizona football's defensive backfield received three commitments over the past week.

Maybe the biggest grab of the group is Jarvis McCall, a safety transfer who committed to South Florida as a member of the 2012 class. Anthony Gimino caught wind of his transfer after eyeing McCall's Armwood High School Twitter feed. McCall is a 6-foot, 185-pound player who was a three-star prospect across the Rivals and Scout recruiting networks and is a four-star for 247Sports. He didn't step onto the field for the Bulls because of academic issues but has his full eligibility.

The Wildcats also got a commitment from Rodney Carr, another 6-foot safety. Out of Los Angeles' Salesian High School, Carr apparently took the Arizona offer on site.

Carr is a three-star prospect as well, but he could be a key in the Wildcats landing two teammates. Outside linebackers Jamardre Cobb and Marquis Ware out of Salesian are both four-star recruits, according to rivals.

The Wildcats also earned a commitment from non-ranked cornerback Jace Whittaker out of Oceanside High School. He's a 6-foot, 175-pound athlete also listed as a received.

Arizona now has nine commitments for the 2014 class. Gimino has the full list going at TucsonCitizen.com.
