Arizona football recruiting: Jacob Colacion commits to Wildcats

The Class of 2016 moves to eight

Student Sports

Some late night recruiting fireworks on Tuesday for the Arizona Wildcats as three-star linebacker Jacob Colacion gave his verbal commitment.

Colacion is a 6-1, 215 pound outside linebacker from La Habra HS in California. He was in Tucson on a visit a few weeks ago, and it was pretty much a given from there that he would commit to Arizona after that, despite some talk about him possibly leaning Northwestern.

Our own Gabe Encinas had Colacion as one of the ten targets Arizona was likely to land a couple of weeks ago.

This is the first linebacker in the 2016 class for Arizona, and the eighth player overall.

Here's a look at some of his work from his junior season of high school.
