The Arizona Wildcats have locked up Jessie Britt, a running back/wide receiver from Florida who plans on adding a whole lot of speed to the Wildcat backfield.

The Auburndale, FL native is headed to Arizona, just a few weeks after being committed to Western Kentucky University.

It was a whirlwind of a three week process for the three-star recruit. After receiving an offer from Arizona on January 5th and visiting Tucson on January 15th. He found himself decommitted from WKU on the 16th and a Wildcat commit on the 27th.

Britt dealt with a heart issue in December so he is expected to grayshirt and, officially, his signing will count toward the 2017 class.

One thing is certain: Whenever this young talent is able to suit up and take the field for the Wildcats, speed will be the name of the game, as evidenced by the highlight package seen below.
