Arizona gets a QB commitment

ESPNU 150 Watch List quarterback Nate Sudfeld, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound quarterback from Modesto Christian HS (Modesto, Calif.), has committed to Arizona.

Sudfeld, the Wildcats' fourth commitment, also drew interest from Stanford, UCLA, Oregon State, Tulsa, Harvard, Nevada and Fresno State.

From his ESPN Recruiting evaluation:

This guy may be one of the best pure passers this class has to offer. Sudfeld possesses prototypical measurables, close to elite arm strength, a smooth and quick release and more than adequate athleticism for the position. Works mostly from the shotgun in a multiple spread scheme, but takes turns from under center as well. Ryan Mallett would be a favorable comparison, but obviously not quite the same arm.


Sudfeld is flying way under the national radar and in our opinion is a high-end BCS caliber talent. Excellent prospect and in terms of pure arm talent he is ahead of the curve.

Sounds like a solid pickup.
