Tucson High wide receiver and defensive back Demetrius Flannigan verbally committed to the Arizona Wildcats today, less than three week after receiving his first Division I offer from them. 

The 6-foot-3-inch 180-pound senior is rated as a two-star recruit by Scout.com recruiting services and was offered by the UA earlier this summer at its one-day prospect camp.

“The UA has kind of always been a school I’ve wanted to go to, so it’s a blessing to get my first offer from them," Flannigan told the Star earlier this month. “As a kid, you go to the UA games, and you get all excited so it’d mean a lot to put on that red, blue and white.”

The UA recruited Flannigan as a safety. As a junior last fall, the corner was a first-team All-Southern Arizona selection by the Star and had five pass breakups.
