Arizona stays hot on the trail, earns trio of commitments after big visit weekend
The Wildcats are on an absolute tear on the recruiting trail right now.
On Wednesday, coach Jedd Fisch and Co. added their fourth, fifth, and sixth commits in the last four days. Within an hour of each other, 3-star athlete Gavin Hunter and 3-star linebacker Kamuela Kaaihue announced their commitments to Arizona. Then, later in the evening, 3-star defensive lineman Dominic Lolesio announced the same.

A 6-foot-4, 230-pound defensive lineman from Long Beach Poly (Calif.), Lolesio is also unranked in the 247 Composite. He’s rated by 247Sports as the 151st defensive lineman in his class. As a junior last fall, he was credited with 5.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks in nine games.
All three of Arizona’s newest recruits were in Tucson this past weekend on official visits. After the success on the trail last cycle, it’s clear what Fisch is selling is resonating with Arizona targets.
The 2023 class stands 10-deep now for the Wildcats, with seven of the known commitments coming on the defensive side of the ball.
