Though it no longer has as much sizzle as it did in the past, Wednesday was National Signing Day in college football. The creation of an early signing period three years ago has taken away a lot of the attention normally focused on the first Wednesday of February, but with all unsigned high school and junior college prospects now able to sign through April 1 the spotlight is back on recruiting.

The Arizona Wildcats signed six players on Wednesday after inking a dozen in December. They’ve also added a pair of graduate transfers, bringing their total to 20 newcomers for the 2020 season.

That class currently ranks 64th in the country, per 247Sports, as well as last in the Pac-12.

More signings and transfers (both in and out) are likely before the Wildcats open play Aug. 29 at home against Hawaii, but for now here’s a breakdown of the 2020 class as it stands:
