Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles hauled in 10 catches for 153 yards as one of the weapons in the prolific Tucson High School offense in 2013. He did most of his damage, though, on the defensive end, earning a spot on the Star’s All-Southern Arizona first team.

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.
