How Arizona’s commits performed in Week 1

Let’s see how UA’s commits performed for their schools this week

NCAA Football: Arizona at California Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Football season is back!

The Arizona Wildcats are gearing up for their first contest of the season against BYU next Saturday. And while the team prepares, the future of the program took to high school fields across America Friday.

Let’s take a look at how each commit faired in their respective game. (This story will be updated when/if stats become available.)

Grant Gunnell, QB, St. Pius X

Result/Score: N/A

School Record: N/A

Game Stats: N/A

Season Stats: N/A

Notes: Gunnell’s Panther team has yet to play a game. Their first contest will be next Friday.

Next Game: at Beaumont United, Aug. 31

Kwabena Watson, OLB, Edison

Result/Score: Neutral site victory over Clovis West, 41-35

School Record: 1-1 (0-0)

Game Stats: Unknown

Season Stats: Unknown (have yet to be posted)

Notes: Edison bounced back from the shellacking they received at the hands of Central last week and won against Fresno-area Clovis West. Watson hasn’t had any stats posted but check out the clip of him harassing the CW QB. He comes barrelling off the edge, blows up the OL, and chases the QB. He is No. 1.

Next Game: at Buchanan, Aug 31st

Maurice Gaines, CB, St. Thomas More

Result/Score: N/A

School Record: N/A

Game Stats: N/A

Season Stats: N/A

Notes: St. Thomas More has yet to play a game.

Next Game: vs Unknown, Sept. 8

Jalen Johnson, WR, Eleanor Roosevelt

Result/Score: Home victory over Glendora, 48-21

School Record: 2-0

Game Stats: Unknown

Season Stats: 1 rec, 15 yds (note: this does not include his stats from Friday)

Notes: Johnson’s stats haven’t been posted, but he had a bounce-back game. Digging through everything, it appears he had at least two touchdowns, one of 40+ yards and the other being 79 yards. He is probably the tallest person on the field and looks exactly like what Arizona is looking for on the outside.

Next Game: at Tesoro, Aug 31st

Kane Bradford, DT, Skyline

Result/Score: N/A

School Record: N/A

Game Stats: N/A

Season Stats: N/A

Notes: Bradford’s Skyline team has yet to play a game. Of note, their first game will be against fellow Arizona commit Derrion Clark’s South Oak Cliff team.

Next Game: vs. South Oak Cliff, Aug 31st

Chris Roland, ATH, William Knight

Result/Score: Away loss to Tesoro, 39-7

School Record: 0-1

Game Stats: Unknown

Season Stats: Unknown (have yet to be posted)

Notes: I was unable to find any stats, clips, or anything on Chris Roland. His Hawks team, however, did not have a good outing against Tesoro.

Next Game: at Burroughs, Aug. 31

Derrion Clark, ILB, South Oak Cliff

Jordan Morgan, OT, Marana

Result/Score: Home victory over Fairfax, 26-0

School Record: 2-0

Game Stats: N/A

Season Stats: N/A

Notes: Morgan’s first two games of the season have been solid. Our own Gabe Encinas saw him last week and liked Morgan’s potential. This week I was told he looked “Damn good. He’s eating up Fairfax’s d-line.” Check out some highlights of Morgan in action from one of our contributors, Christopher Boan. (Morgan is wearing No. 77.)

Fun fact: Morgan is coached by former Arizona Wildcat offensive lineman Kyle Quinn.

Next Game: vs Catalina Foothills, Aug. 31

Eddie Siaumau, OLB, Leone

Result/Score: N/A

School Record: N/A

Game Stats: N/A

Notes: I am unsure if Leone has played a game. I’ve been unable to find anything.

Next Game: Unknown

Kyle Ostendorp, P, Desert Vista

Result/Score: Away victory over Carlsbad, 33-21

School Record: 2-0

Game Stats: Unknown

Season Stats: Unknown (have yet to be posted)

Notes: Desert Vista is starting the season off strong, beating their second California team this year. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find any stats or news on Ostendorp’s performances.

Next Game: vs. Valley Vista, Sept. 7
