2012-10-28T11:50:00Z 2012-10-28T22:56:25Z Arizona Wildcats football: UA adds JC recruit following upset winBy Ryan Finley, Arizona Daily Star Arizona Daily Star

The Arizona Wildcats’ upset win over USC is already paying off.

Mario Alford, a junior-college player from Georgia Military College, verbally committed to the UA this morning, according to the recruiting service. Alford spent the weekend in Tucson on an official visit, and was in the stands when the Wildcats upset the Trojans 39-36 Saturday afternoon.

Alford is the second Georgia Military player to verbally commit to the UA’s Class of 2013. Linebacker Brandon Golson committed last month. lists Alford as a three-star recruit; he’s listed by most recruiting services as an “athlete”, meaning he can play either offense or defense. Alford has experience at running back, but could also play in the secondary.

Georgia recruited Alford heavily a year ago as a possible addition to their 2012 class.
