It was another great week for Arizona Wildcat commits in the high school football world. We’re seeing the usual performers come out on top, which includes a nice group of offensive players.

As we start to get through the bulk of the season, coaches are getting much better at inputting their team statistics online, which will allow us to get you more information on all of the guys that have given Arizona their verbal commitments.

Nathan Tilford adding to his touchdown totals

Tilford now has 10 touchdowns on the season. He’s been averaging just under 14 yards a carry this season for Colony High. You can read more about his role in the offense here. With the dismissal of Orlando Bradford, he’ll be an even bigger piece in the running game the moment he steps foot on campus.

Brian Casteel on the rise

He’s been one of the fastest-rising commits this season, and should see a huge jump in his rankings. Arizona scored big here by securing him early, which has allowed him to focus on his play. He finished the night with three touchdowns: two rushing and one receiving.

Bryce Wolma snags a red zone touchdown

Maybe we’ll get to see some red zone touchdowns when Wolma gets to campus, reviving the tight end position at Arizona. He helped lead his team to a win with a 5-yard touchdown.

Drew Dixon continues to carry running back load

There weren’t any videos or tweets of Drew Dixon this week, but Sabino is extremely great about inputting their stats. Looks like Dixon had five carries for 93 yards and two touchdowns in a blowout win over Tanque Verde by a score of 63-0.

Joshua Brown attacks the quarterback

3-star linebacker commit Joshua Brown had himself a nice night, recording two sacks. He’s been all over the defense for Long Beach Poly this season.

Scott Young continues to impact offense

Young has been one of my favorite prospects since he committed and he’s been shining on offense for Helix this season.

Warren Jackson, Bishop Alemany lose in triple overtime

The 6-foot-5 wide receiver came up with a clutch Hail Mary grab to send his game to triple overtime. Alemany went on to lose, but Jackson finished the night with three touchdowns.

4th and 25, 2nd OT. One play left to tie. Throw it to Warren Jackson. @Maxpreps #d1bound @scorestream

Bryce Gilbert back to his normal self

Teams are really starting to put their attention on Bryce Gilbert whenever they play Higley, but that did’t seem to matter this weekend. He finished with seven receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown. He also added 68 return yards on the night.

Braxton Burmeister continues to sling touchdowns

The stats have yet to be confirmed, but it looks like Braxton Burmeister notched seven touchdowns this weekend. He’s been working on reading defenses and is closing in on the San Diego all-time passing touchdown record. His latest stats have yet to enter the system, but through his first three games, he’s thrown for 1003 yards, 11 touchdowns and one interception, completing over 63 percent of his passes.
