Arizona Wildcats football recruiting logo OLD DO NOT USE

Several recruits visit Arizona on Saturday night. One of them committed to the Wildcats the next day.

Jake Peters, a consensus three-star tight end from Rancho Santa Margarita, California, pledged to Arizona via Twitter on Sunday evening.

Peters missed his junior season at Santa Margarita High because of an Achilles’ injury. Both of his parents attended Arizona. When the school offered him a scholarship in August, Peters told “This one really touches home for me.”

Peters is listed at 6-foot-5 and anywhere from 220 to 225 pounds. He is the 11th recruit and first tight end to commit to Arizona for the class of 2018.

The Wildcats have four tight ends on their roster. One is a redshirt junior (Trevor Wood). One is a redshirt freshmen (Jamie Nunley). The other two are true freshmen (Bryce Wolma, Bryce Gilbert).

  • Armani Adams, S, St. Petersburg, Fla. (Lakewood)
