The July dead period is over and the Arizona Wildcats celebrated by adding another piece to their 2019 class on Saturday.
Maurice Gaines Jr., a 3-star cornerback from Northern California, announced his commitment to UA while on a visit to Tucson.
Gaines has 13 offers and selected the ‘Cats over schools like Indiana, Oregon State, Syracuse, San Diego State, Fresno State, and Wyoming.
He is currently attending prep school at St. Thomas More School in Connecticut. He played high school football at Folsom High School (Folsom, CA) and Capital Christian School (Sacramento, CA).
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Gaines is the No. 1,067 recruit nationally and the No. 108 corner, per 247Sports.
Gaines becomes Arizona’s 10th commit and its third from California.
Arizona added three-star safety Eddie Siaumau earlier in the day.
