The Arizona Wildcats have stood out in a college football recruiting frenzy. Arizona had already landed three four-star recruits before they flipped four-star wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan, who originally committed to Oregon, to join their program. The announcement on McMillan completes a wild, recruiting class for the Wildcats.
Arizona lands a Top 50 recruit, their fourth four-star recruit in this class. U of A only had two four-stars in the previous five years. Cats had never finished better than 10th in the Pac-12 the past five years. Could finish No. 2 in recruiting in Pac-12 this year.

This is a huge get for Arizona. Ex-Oregon commit and wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan, nicknamed ‘T-Mac', was touted by California coaches as “the best player they've seen this year.”
McMillan's rare combination of size, athleticism and ball skills is what originally caught Oregon's attention- and ultimately led the Wildcats to woo him. He caught 179 passes for 2,640 yards and 34 touchdowns in his high school career.
McMillan is the number-two wide receiver recruit in the 2022 class and becomes the highest-rated football player to ever commit to the Wildcats' program- and their best since the 2006 announcement involving cornerback Devin Ross.
The commitment flip of McMillan from Oregon to Arizona completes the Wildcats' best recruiting effort in years. According to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, the Cats had never finished better than 12th in the Pac-12 amongst all recruiters.
Now, thanks to their wild haul, including talented wideout and ex-Oregon commit Tetairoa McMillan, the Wildcats are positioned for a strong showing in college football next season.
