While the Arizona Wildcats are making the most of their recruiting limitations during the NCAA’s coronavirus-mandated dead period in terms of offering prospects for the Class of 2021, they still have spots on the 2020 roster that need filling.
And on Saturday they got one in the form of junior college offensive lineman Sam Langi:
I am extremely excited to announce my commitment to the University of Arizona! I’d like to thank the Arizona football staff for this opportunity and everyone that has guided and supported me throughout this recruiting process! @CSM_Football @coachTcsm @CoachDeVan @TaylorMazzone1 pic.twitter.com/dcm17yRHzV— Sam Langi (@sam_langi65) March 28, 2020
The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Langi played last season for College of San Mateo in California, earning all-state and All-American honors according to his Twitter bio. Originally from the San Francisco area, his San Mateo team went 12-1 in 2019 and played in California’s junior college title game.
Langi becomes the 23rd member of Arizona’s 2020 class, including transfers, which still ranks last in the Pac-12 by 247Sports. He’s the fifth offensive lineman the Wildcats have brought in for next season along with Woody Jean (who was part of spring practice before it was stopped), Josh Baker, Leif Magnuson and Division II transfer Matthew Stefanski.
Here are Langi’s 2019 highlights:
