How Arizona’s commits performed in Week 3

NCAA Football: Arizona at Houston Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Things didn’t go the way the Arizona Wildcats wanted Saturday against Houston.

While Kevin Sumlin and his staff still learn about the current team, their first full recruiting class took to fields all around the country over the weekend. Here’s a look at how each future Wildcat performed in Week 3:

Grant Gunnell, QB, St. Pius X

Result/Score: Home victory against La Marque, 65-21

School Record: 2-0 (0-0)

Game Stats: 19-for-33, 388 yds, 6 TD, 0 INT; 3 car, 47 yds, 0 TD

Season Stats: 52-for-73, 802 yds, 11 TD, 0 INT; 11 car, 93 yds, 2 TD

Game Notes: Gunnell had quite the game. He showed great accuracy, touch and arm strength throughout the night. He also showed off his athleticism on a few rushes, including a nifty spin move on a big gain.

Next Game: at Episcopal, Sept. 14th

Kwabena Watson, OLB/DE, Edison

Result/Score: Away victory against Clovis North, 37-28

School Record: 2-2 (0-0)

Game Stats: 1 tackle (based off clips)

Season Stats: 3 tackles (based off clips)

Game Notes: Edison bounced back nicely and had a nice victory over Clovis North. Still not 100% sure on Watson’s production but based off the 12-second clip from the game he had a tackle. I also added his highlights from the previous week against Buchanan.

Clovis North:


Next Game: at Dinuba, Sept. 14th

Maurice Gaines Jr., CB, St. Thomas More

Result/Score: Home victory against Nordrhein-Westfalen, 47-0

School Record: 1-0 (0-0)

Game Stats: 1 tackle (based off clips)

Season Stats: 1 tackle (based off clips)

Game Notes: Gaines and his Chancellor football team played their first game against a team that traveled from Germany to Connecticut. St. Thomas More easily handled the Green Machine 47-0. Based off a few clips, Gaines flashed his press coverage skills. Also came up and made a very physical tackle.

Next Game: at Choate Rosemary Hall, Sept. 15th

Jalen Johnson, WR, Eleanor Roosevelt

Result/Score: Away loss against Servite, 32-13

School Record: 2-2 (0-0)

Game Stats: 5 rec, 92 yds, 0 TD

Season Stats: 16 rec, 347 yds, 3 TD

Game Notes: The Mustangs did not have a great game against Servite on Friday. There were multiple mistakes offensively that hurt the team. However, Johnson had a solid game overall and made some clutch catches to help move the sticks for Roosevelt. He continues to flash his hands and his playmaking ability downfield.

Next Game: at Rancho Mirage, Sept. 14th

Kane Bradford, DT, Skyline

Result/Score: Home game against Ennis cancelled

School Record: 0-1 (0-0)

Game Stats: N/A

Season Stats: 1 tackle, 1.0 TFL (based on clips)

Game Notes: Based on everything that I could find, the gamed was canceled.

Next Game: at Sam Houston, Sept. 13th

Chris Roland, DB, William Knight

Result/Score: Home victory against Paloma Valley, 28-21

School Record: 2-1 (0-0)

Game Stats: 6 tackles, 1.0 TFL, 1 forced fumble

Season Stats: 20 tackles, 2.0 TFL, 2 INT, 1 PBU, 1 forced fumble; punt return for a TD

Game Notes: The Hawks won their second game of the season, taking down Paloma Valley. Roland played physically again, which is starting to become a common theme. I love his desire to come up and hit someone. He plays the run rather well and his physicality cannot be overlooked.

Next Game: at Quartz Hill, Sept. 14th

Derrion Clark, LB, South Oak Cliff

Result/Score: Home loss to Duncanville, 7-0

School Record: 1-1 (0-0)

Game Stats: 2 tackles, 1.0 TFL (based off clips)

Season Stats: 17 tackles, 4.0 TFL

Game Notes: It was a defensive struggle as SOC fell to Duncanville 7-0. Clark has about 30 seconds of clips but they are still long enough to show off what he will bring to Tucson. The first is patience, dissecting the play before committing. The others include aggression and sure tackling.

Next Game: vs Wilmer-Hutchins, Sept. 14th

Michael Wiley, RB, Strake Jesuit

Result/Score: Home victory against West Brook, 55-40

School Record: 2-0 (0-0)

Game Stats: 27 car, 138 yds, 0 TD; 1 rec, 0 yds, 0 TD

Season Stats: 42 car, 330 yds, 2 TD; 2 rec, 19 yds, 0 TD

Game Notes: Wiley and Strake Jesuit won their second game in a row, beating powerhouse West Brook. Wiley had another solid game, going over 100 yards for the second week in a row. He is having a great senior year so far, averaging around 8 yards per carry so far. Below are his highlights from last week’s game against St. Thomas Catholic.

St. Thomas Catholic:

Next Game: vs Eisenhower, Sept. 14th

Jordan Morgan, OT, Marana

Result/Score: Away victory against Desert View, 35-0

School Record: 4-0 (0-0)
