The offensive line is arguably the last area where Arizona needs to add players ahead of the 2022 season, and it addressed that need on Friday in a big way, literally and figuratively.
Joe Borjon, who spent the 2021 season at Mt. San Antonio College in California, announced his commitment to the UA.

Listed at 6-foot-8 and 330 pounds, Borjon was an All-South Coast Conference selection at left tackle. He comes to Arizona with three years of eligibility remaining.
Borjon, who does not have a 247Sports profile, is the fourth offensive lineman Arizona has added in the 2022 recruiting class, which including transfers ranks 18th in the country and No. 1 in the Pac-12. The other OL signees are 3-star prospects Grayson Stovall, Jonah Savaiinaea and Jacob Reece.
The UA also added a walk-on offensive lineman on Friday, one with a high upside. Jack Buford, a former 4-star prospect in the 2019 recruiting class who began his career at Missouri and spent 2021 at New Mexico, will sit out this season as a double transfer.
Arizona’s 2022 class now includes 31 players, including eight transfers and 22 high school prospects who signed during the Early Signing Period.
