3-star Texas linebacker KC Ossai commits to Arizona


The Arizona Wildcats added a second commitment in as many days Sunday, landing three-star outside linebacker KC Ossai out of Oak Ridge High School in Conroe, Texas.

Ossai, who also does discus, is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1,198 player in the 2021 recruiting class, as well as the 48th-best inside linebacker and the No. 181 prospect from Texas.

Arizona was Ossai’s only Power Five offer. He chose them over North Texas, Nevada, UTSA, Montana, Air Force, Fordham, and Army.

Ossai has two older brothers playing linebacker in college, including Joseph Ossai, who led the Texas Longhorns with 90 tackles last season as a sophomore. Phillip Ossai is entering his second year at Houston Baptist.

“They’ve been extremely helpful, just teaching me about the process, teaching me drills to improve my game and helping me get through this,” KC once told 247Sports. “The place I choose to go sets the path for my life, so they’ve been helping me find the best fit for me, not just in football, but academically as well.”

Ossai becomes the 21st member of Arizona’s 2021 recruiting class, including the fifth from Texas. His commitment comes a day after the Wildcats landed junior college offensive lineman Cade Parrish.
