Signing Day Awards: Best Offensive Player

Signing Day Awards: Best Offensive Player

Arizona has plenty of talented offensive players in this class. Read on to see which players the staff feels are the best.

Michael Luke: If all goes according to plan, Anu Solomon will be one of the most important recruits of the Rich Rodriguez era. Although a little on the short side and certainly not a speed demon, Solomon seems to have the physical and mental tools to eventually become a top-flight college quarterback.

He will get an opportunity to play right away and with the coaching of Rodriguez and company, you have to believe that Solomon's career is set up for success.

Jason Nimrichter: With the ability to beat the opposition with his feet or through the air, Anu Solomon provides the type of tools necessary to thrive in Rich Rodriguez's offense.

The incoming freshman's style of play doesn't necessarily replicate previous quarterbacks who have played under Rodriguez, but his overall skill set may actually surpass quite a few of them.

Solomon threw 35 touchdowns and just five interceptions this past year, while throwing for over 2,800 yards and running for 190. While his rushing yardage doesn't seem to be on par with the typical Rodriguez quarterback, he is a signal-caller that makes smart decisions and is more than capable of beating opposing defenses with his legs when needed.

Cody James Martin: It may not happen right away, but Pierre Cormier will be a major contributor to the Arizona offense at some point in his career. While he is good enough to play immediately, it will be tough to beat Ka'Deem Carey for touches.

Cormier has a toughness to him that is similar to the nation's leading rusher and is hard to take down in the open field.

The running back also has a speed burst that Carey doesn't have once he gets to that second level that will definitely make for a few entertaining breakaway runs in his career.

Logan Stott: I don't think you can understate the importance of a good offensive lineman and Stott is one of the best in the country.

The Arizona coaching staff is extremely high on him and the fact that Stott enrolled early will give him a head start.

It would not be a surprise to see Stott play early or even start as a freshman and not look back on his way to being a four-year lineman with plenty of individual success.
