Arizona Wildcats football: UA adds another recruit to 2012 class

2011-09-11T17:27:00Z 2011-09-11T17:36:56Z Arizona Wildcats football: UA adds another recruit to 2012 class Arizona Daily Star

Safety Devian Shelton verbally committed to the Arizona Wildcats tonight, giving the Wildcats a toolsy and potentially valuable player for 2012.

The Scout.com recruiting service lists the 6-foot-2-inch, 180-pound Shelton as a three-star recruit and the nation's 88th-best safety. He chose the Wildcats over offers from Arizona State, Idaho, New Mexico, San Diego State, SMU, Utah State and Washington State.

Shelton registered 41 tackles and three interceptions and recovered one fumble as a junior at Inglewood (Calif.) High School. He's one of the top players for the Sentinels, who are 0-2 so far this season.

Shelton is the second high school standout to commit to the UA in as many Sundays. The Wildcats received a verbal commitment from Anthony Lopez, a running back from Gilbert Mesquite High School, a week ago. Lopez rushed for 1,552 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior in 2010.
