If there’s one position group the Arizona Wildcats need to replenish it’s offensive line, and they’ve at least done some of that by landing a verbal commitment from junior college offensive tackle Maisen Knight.
“Blessed to announce that I have committed to play football at the University of Arizona! #BearDown” Knight tweeted out on Tuesday.
Knight was on a visit to Tucson this past weekend after being offered by the Wildcat coaching staff on June 20th.

Knight is listed at 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, but is also currently attending Ventura College. He attended high school at Judge Memorial Catholic in Salt Lake City.
Here are his highlights from his first year of junior college play. Knight has confirmed to us that he will be moving to Tucson on July 9th and expects to be eligible this season.
Arizona’s current offensive line has just 12 total players, so any help this year is certainly welcome.
