The Arizona Wildcats ended 2015 with a bang, landing a commitment from the 11th-ranked outside linebacker in the junior college ranks, Kapri Doucet. The 3-star linebacker checks in at 6-3 225lbs, and could be in the rotation immediately for Arizona.

If you've kept up with the recruiting roundups, I've said all along that I was very confident that Arizona would land him. Based on my talks with him, and the other schools in the mix and their recruiting positions, I didn't think Arizona would miss out here. Here's my full interview with him after his official visit to Arizona.
He had Louisville, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Nebraska, among others, on his recruitment. Doucet was planning to take official visits to Louisville and West Virginia in January, so we'll see if things change. Last I talked to him, he said that this might be a signing day decision, so this was a pleasant surprise.
Here are his 2015 highlights from Lackawanna College. I'll be getting on a call with him later Thursday to talk about his decision, and will have more content coming soon.
