The Arizona Wildcats added another defender to their 2021 recruiting class, landing a commitment from junior college defensive end Alex Navarro-Silva on Saturday.
Navarro-Silva attends Riverside City College in Southern California. Listed at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Navarro-Silva logged 40 tackles (5.5 for loss) and 2.5 sacks in 2019 as RCC won its first state championship in 30 years.
After talking to coach Buh and headcoach Sumlin I have decided to commit to The University of Arizona. Big shout out to the Don Lugo family, and the RCC family. I’m blessed to be in the situation I am in because of my parents and the man up above. #beardown pic.twitter.com/LJZ93kL6gl— Alex (@metalmouthalex) June 27, 2020
Before Navarro-Silva went to RCC, he prepped at Don Lugo High School in Chino, California, where as a senior he racked up 17 tackles for loss, including 10 sacks. It’s unclear who else was recruiting him.
Navarro-Silva becomes Arizona’s 11th 2021 commit and eighth on defense. The Wildcats just landed three-star tight end Colby Powers on Friday. The class ranks 64th in the country and sixth in the Pac-12.
