Rich Rodriguez's Red Carpet event that debuted the Lowell-Stevens football facility to the public sparked a few commitments on Saturday, and tight end Darrell Cloy and cornerback Kwesi Mashack followed up the initial commitment from Trevor Wood.
Cloy, like Wood, is a tight end, though he comes in a smaller package. At 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, the La Habra High School three-star prospect is listed as the 26th-best tight end in his 2014 class. Wood, a 6-foot-6 TE from Scottsdale Chaparral, was the 23rd-rated tight end.

Mashack is a three-star cornerback from Norco High School in California, commitment was reported by the Arizona Daily Star's Daniel Berk.
Why stop now? #ArizonaWildcats have landed their third commit of the day in Norco (Calif.) CB Kwesi Mashack. Another Scout 3-star.— Daniel Berk (@DSBerk) July 28, 2013
Before Mashack's commitment, Scout.com's team rankings list of commitments for the 2014 class listed Arizona as the top Pac-12 school with 16 commitments -- now it's at 17. Of course, the numbers mean little with so much time left. And it obviously means little until all those star-rated prospects develop down the road.
Still, for the Wildcats to be sitting in the top-25 so far is a sign that Rodriguez's recruiting skill is being honed in his first coaching stint out West. The 2014 class of commits includes three four-star prospects and a very strong Arizona and California blend, which is very different than Mike Stoops' Texas-heavy recruiting tactics.
And hey, if director of campus recruiting and player personnel Matt Dudek can grab commitments wearing this, then anything is possible.
