It’s been a heck of a weekend for the Arizona Wildcats on the recruiting trail.

On Saturday, they landed two defensive backs in Eddie Siaumau and Maurice Gaines Jr., and Sunday they received a commitment from three-star athlete Chris Roland.

The Palmdale, California native is the No. 1,627 player in the 2019 class and No. 145 athlete, per 247Sports’ rankings.

Roland attends William Knight High School where he played in nine games and had 31 tackles, one tackle for loss, five interceptions, and two fumble recoveries as a junior. He also had 42 catches for 611 yards and 10 touchdowns as a receiver.

Roland told us Arizona wants him to play cornerback at the next level. The 6-foot, 180-pound athlete has a strong relationship with UA cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin.

Roland also held offers from Nevada, Oregon State, New Mexico, and San Jose State. He is Arizona’s 11th 2019 commit. The Wildcats’ class ranks 63rd in the country and eighth in the Pac-12, per 247Sports.

We will have some more analysis on Roland later, but for now, check out his junior year highlights:
