Jabari Watson has not even visited Tucson or the University of Arizona yet, but that didn't stop him from giving his verbal commitment to the Arizona Wildcats on Thursday.

Watson, a three-star defensive lineman from Summit HS in Fontana, CA, is ranked the 63rd best defensive tackle in the country according to 247Sports. He joins Justin Holt as the second defensive tackle in the 2016 class, and is the 7th prospect to commit to Arizona.

"I was happy because that was my first Pac-12 offer and I love how the coaches are. They seem very interested in me and I really like that," Watson told our Gabe Encinas last week. The new commit cited Miguel Reveles as a big reason why he's so comfortable with Arizona.
