Yep. The Arizona Wildcats have landed yet another commitment for the 2017 class. This now gives the class 19 commitments, ten in the month of June. The newest commit is Warren Jackson, 3-star wide receiver out of Bishop Alemany (Mission Hills, CA).

Jackson is an extremely nice piece for the offense, checking in at 6-foot-5, 185 pounds. This is a commitment that I was expecting to happen for Arizona, and had this in my Crystal Ball prediction. When I spoke to him about his recruitment, I got a good feeling about this one, especially once he said he was in love with the campus. It was also evident that with all of these commitments, guys were going to need to commit soon to save their spot, which is exactly what Jackson did, as he told me that he had been in discussion with his family about committing soon.
This now gives the Wildcats five pass catchers for the 2017 class and there might be room for one more, with the focus solely on Joseph Lewis and possibly Bryan Thompson or KJ Hamler. But between Drew Dixon, Bryce Gilbert, and now Jackson, Arizona is going to have some great height on offense now. When you consider the fact that Samajie Grant, Trey Griffey and Nate Phillips will all be leaving after 2016, some of these recruits might be able to see the field as freshmen.
During his varsity career, Jackson has amassed 71 receptions for 1,140 yards and 11 touchdowns.
His junior year highlights are below.
