TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Arizona Wildcats football team welcomed 21 new players on National Signing Day Wednesday.

Jedd Fisch recruited heavily from California, signing 11 from the Golden State.

The Wildcats went 1-11 this season and had one of the worst defenses in the Pac-12. Arizona gave up 31.2 points and 377 yards per game.

Fisch and newly hired defensive coordinator Johnny Nansen addressed that by bringing in 12 new defensive players.

Arizona signed only one quarterback (Noah Fifita from Servite High in Anaheim) and one running back (Jonah Coleman from Lincoln High in Stockton).

The Wildcats also focused on improving the offensive and defensive lines by signing nine big men.

While there were no southern Arizona players in the class, the Wildcats did grab two players from Phoenix and two from Chandler.

Below is a breakdown of the Wildcats’ 2021 signing class.
