Arizona football recruiting: Darrell Cloy, Kwesi Mashack commit

Arizona's red carpet event that began with Trevor Wood's commitment continued throughout the afternoon.


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.

Before Mashack's commitment,'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.
