Rich Rodriguez has landed a key target for the 2013 recruiting class.
The Arizona Wildcats have a big hole at the quarterback position following the 2012 season as senior Matt Scott graduates. The competition to land the starting spot next year will be very high, and after missing out on a few key recruits in this year's recruiting class, Rich Rodriguez has been working hastily to land a few signal callers for the class that will sign in February of 2013.
On Sunday morning, Anu Solomon, a four-star quarterback recruit from Bishop Gorman High School in Nevada, committed to the Wildcats.
As we learned in this great article from ESPN, Solomon is quite the player. A dual-threat option at quarterback, he has led his high school to a record of 43-3 and three state championships since taking over in 2009. Many schools have taken notice of his strong play the last few years, including the likes of Arizona State, Colorado and USC.
Solomon is a big get for Rich Rodriguez and the coaching staff. Not only is he a talented quarterback, but it also ensures that Arizona lands at least one high-profile recruit for the 2013 class. Expect at least one more QB to commit, but it's tough to imagine many in high school football have a better pedigree than Solomon does.
Here is some video of Anu during his junior season.
