Linebacker Matthew Weerts Commits to Arizona

The Arizona Wildcats continue to add commits.

On Monday, linebacker Matthew “Mojo” Weerts made his pledge to Wildcats, becoming the sixth commitment in the month of June.

Weerts hails from Batavia, Illinois and tallied 137 total tackles, 20 tackles for loss, two interceptions and 9.5 sacks in two years.

The 6-foot-2, 217-pound linebacker also holds offers from Air Force, Army, Ball State, Boise State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Furman, Illinois State, Indiana State, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), Missouri State, Navy, North Dakota Stae, Northern Illinios, Ohio, South Dakota, Toledo and Wyoming. The Wildcats were the first Power 5 program to offer Weerts.

This is Arizona’s ninth commitment of the 2021 class. Kevin Sumlin is hopeful for more good recruiting “Mojo” over the coming months.
