Arizona National Signing Day 2015: Tight end Darrell Cloy can add new depth to offense

When you look at his size, 6-3 245 lbs, the name Terrence Miller immediately jumps out.

In a class with four tight ends for the Arizona Wildcats, Darrell Cloy seems to jump out ahead of the others. Cloy was originally a member of the 2014 class, but attended prep school at Milford Academy this past semester. He was ranked 16th for tight ends in the class of 2014 as a three star recruit according to ESPN. With offers to Colorado, Colorado State and New Mexico, it's clear that Cloy wanted to play for a winner.

When you look at his size, 6-3 245 lbs, the name Terrence Miller immediately jumps out. Another tight end in this year's recruiting class, Matt Morin, happens to be listed at the same height and weight.

With Cloy's size, speed and route running, he can be a defensive nightmare for Pac-12 defenses. Throw a nickel corner on him and he'll beat you with size. Send a linebacker out to cover him, and he'll burn you down the seams. His highlights are below.

With the best receiving group in the nation, Cloy can be the complete curveball for defenses. Having to worry about Cayleb Jones and Trey Griffey on the outside, with Samajie Grant and Nate Phillips in the slot, throwing Cloy on the line to block or run routes will be a nightmare to match up against.
