On Saturday, the Arizona Wildcats hosted their annual recruiting event called “The Closing.” The event hosted multiple big-time prospects on campus and one of those was Jhevon Hill, who ended up committing on the visit, according to Greg Biggins of CBS Sports.

Once a UCLA pledge, the 6-foot-3, 185 pound athlete out of Cajon High School (San Bernardino, Calif.) becomes the eighth commit in Arizona’s 2018 class.

Hill is the No. 500 recruit in the 2018 class, according to Scout.com.

Arizona offered Hill in mid-May after it visited his high school during the spring evaluation period, and a little under a month after that, Hill decommitted from UCLA, and since then has been a major target for Arizona.

Listed as an athlete, Hill can play safety, cornerback, and wide receiver, though he will most likely be patrolling the defensive backfield at the next level.

According to MaxPreps, Hill recorded 12 tackles, two interceptions, and pass breakups in eight games as a junior. He also snagged 11 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown.

Here are his junior year highlights:
