The Arizona Wildcats received some good news Friday evening, picking up their 13th 2018 commit in San Diego High School product Thomas Marcus.

The 6-foot-4, 185 pound athlete plays multiple positions for the Cavers, including wide receiver, running back, quarterback, and safety (he also plays basketball, for what it’s worth).

It sounds like Arizona is bringing Marcus in as a running back/receiver, though that could obviously change.

Marcus visited Tucson earlier this year and picked up his offer from the Wildcats last week. His other offer was from Utah State.

San Diego High is 6-0 this season, and Marcus has 13 catches for 302 yards and seven touchdowns as a receiver. He also has 11 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Marcus is another big, tall athlete that can help either in the run game or, more importantly, in the passing game.

As seen in his highlights below, San Diego’s quarterback likes using Marcus in jump-ball situations, which could prove to be valuable weapon in the red zone for UA in the future.
