The Arizona Wildcats signed legacy and stout 3-star California offensive lineman JT Hand on Wednesday.

High School: Mission Viejo High School

Hometown: Mission Viejo, California

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 295 pounds

2020 Stats: No stats, season starts in early 2021

Offers: Arizona, UNLV

247Sports Composite Ranking: No. 1,706 nationally, No. 21 center, No. 140 in California

Analysis: Two things really stick out about Hand. One: he is a legacy. His father Bryan played at Arizona from 1993-1995. Two: he is a mauler.

Hand gets fantastic pad level and a ton of aggression. He has great placement with his hands and keeps his feet moving.

He naturally has a great motor and plays smart. He is a strong player as well, using his lower body strength to keep a good base.

He has a similar style to freshman Josh Baker and I can see those two anchoring the interior of the offensive line for a long time.
