Arizona football recruiting: Kylan Wilborn verbally commits to Wildcats

A new name in the 2017 class

Student Sports

The Arizona Wildcats have landed the third member of the 2017 football recruiting class. Kylan Wilborn, a three-star DE/OLB from Notre Dame HS in Sherman Oaks, CA, tweeted out his decision Tuesday evening.

Wilborn, who is listed at 6'2" and 237 pounds, is unranked by 247Sports, but is a three-star on Scout.

Maybe the more interesting part of this is the apparent seal of approval from Elijah Blades, who is a much bigger recruiting prize than Wilborn.

Wilborn joins Rhett Rodriguez and Greg Johnson as the current members of Arizona's 2017 recruiting class.

The defensive staff, particularly Marcel Yates, sees Wilborn as a versatile piece to the pass rushing puzzle:

You can see that he certainly has the speed and elusiveness in his highlight video to be a possible big contributor moving forward, and could contribute to an improved Arizona pass rush in the near future.
