The Arizona Wildcats have landed a commitment from three-star offensive lineman JT Hand, he announced Sunday on Twitter.
Arizona offered Hand earlier in the day. He visited campus in November for the Oregon State game. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound lineman is listed as a center and guard on various sites. He attends Mission Viejo High School in Mission Viejo, California.
Hand was listed by MaxPreps as one of the Top 100 under the radar high school football players. He also had an offer from UNLV, which he received in April.
“Can play at a high level anywhere on the offensive line. Doesn’t have any offers yet but expect some to come during his senior season,” Zack Poff wrote in April.
Hand is Arizona’s third 2021 commit, joining three-star linebackers Jackson Bailey and Kolbe Cage. All pledged to the UA in May. An NCAA dead period that extends through July 31 has prohibited coaches from meeting and hosting recruits in person for more than two months now, but they are permitted to communicate electronically.
Here are Hand’s junior year highlights:
