Arizona’s d-line just got more beef

Arizona v Utah

The Arizona Wildcats have landed junior college defensive tackle PJ Johnson of City College of San Francisco.

Johnson announced his commitment Wednesday on Twitter. His signing was later confirmed by the UA.

Johnson is unranked in 247Sports’ database, and held offers from Rutgers, UNLV, New Mexico and Kansas among others.

Johnson was offered by Arizona last Tuesday and took his official visit just a few days later. He is expected to enroll early and participate in spring ball.

A Sacramento, Calif. native, Johnson fits exactly what Arizona is looking for along the defensive line. Standing at 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, he is a load and will bring much needed size to the unit.

In 10 games for the CCSF Rams, Johnson recorded 17 tackles, 8.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks, and a forced fumble.

Johnson is listed as a freshman, which would mean he has four years to play three at Arizona.

Johnson moves quickly for someone his size. He has solid footwork and uses his hands and strength to his advantage.

His highlights are below:
