Gridiron Arizona's 2020 Recruiting Update: 11/13

Basha star athlete Harper picks up offer from New Mexico

UPDATED: 11/13/19

Colleges across the nation continue to take notice of the prep talent in Arizona each season. More than 360 players from the Class of 2019 signed with schools to advance their football careers, and receive an education.

This was another busy week with more than 35 players receiving offers!

Times for all college games are given in terms of Arizona time (MST).

Red Mountain won its first playoff game to extend its record to 10-1. Part of the reason for that starts in the trenches and defensive end/offensive tackle Jake Griffin has helped the Lions control the line of scrimmage this year. Last Sunday, he received an FBS offer from Tulane. The 6-6, 265-pounder played on both sides of the ball last Friday against Corona del Sol and RMHS rolled up 40 points through the first three quarters in a 43-14 win over the Aztecs. Griffin also had a sack in the game. Tulane's offense has broke the 500-yard mark five times this season. The Green Wave (6-3) are bowl eligible for the second straight season after a Homecoming win over Tulsa on Nov. 2. Tulane had last weekend off and gets back after it this Saturday in Philadelphia at Temple (6-3) in an American Athletic Conference game. ESPNU will have the broadcast at 10 a.m.

Another team heading into the playoffs strong is Chandler. Daveon Hunter has helped the Wolves to a 10-0 record and the top seed in the Open State Championship at running back. The 5-10, 200-pound athlete collected offers from Eastern Michigan and UNLV on Monday. Hunter, who goes by "Dae Dae", rushed for 1,349 yards and 30 touchdowns in his first year at CHS after transferring from Colorado. Eastern Michigan already had its game this week as the Eagles were featured on Tuesday night in MACtion against Akron. EMU dominated, 42-14 and had six rushing touchdowns. Eastern (5-5) plays next Tuesday at Northern Illinois (4-6). ESPN2 will televise the game at 5:30 p.m. UNLV (2-7) will host Hawaii (6-4) for Homecoming this Saturday. The Rebels have defeated Hawaii the last five times the teams have met at Sam Boyd Stadium.

At Basha, an early-season injury at the quarterback position necessitated some switching. Cornerback Micah Harper moved over to start three games at QB as he is one of the most athletic players on the team. Last Thursday, Harper earned an offer from New Mexico. Playing multiple positions, he made 26 tackles, had a sack, intercepted a pass, passed for three touchdowns, caught 2 TDs, and rushed for a score. New Mexico (2-7) will try to get back to normalcy as best it can when it resumes its schedule this Saturday at Boise State (8-1). Last week's game against Air Force was rescheduled after the passing of UNM starting nose tackle Nahje Flowers. This will be the late game on ESPN2 kicking off at 8:20 p.m. from Boise.

Pinnacle defensive tackle Achor commits to Mount Union

UPDATED: 11/11/19

Pinnacle senior defensive lineman Drew Achor has committed to Mount Union.

Achor (6-1, 260) is a two-year varsity player for the Pioneers, who will play at Salpointe in the inaugural Open Division tournament this Friday. Mount Union is a Division III program in Alliance, Ohio.

He was a First Team All-6A Desert Valley Region selection as a junior. This season, Achor has five sacks in seven games. He also carries a 4.1 GPA.

Achor received his offer from Mount Union last June. He has been to two of its summer skills camps, an unofficial visit during his junior year, and an official visit last week when Pinnacle had a bye week before the Open.

"I really loved the family atmosphere on the team as well as on campus and I was impressed with how the upperclassment still teach skills to the younger guys," Achor said in a text message. "I was also very impressed with Mount Union's newly-renovated engineering department."

Achor said he is mostly interested in pursuing a degree in either mechanical or civil engineering.

Mount Union is a perennial national champion as the Purple Raiders have claimed 13 titles since 1993. This year's team clinched a share of the Ohio Athletic Conference title and a 31st trip to the playoffs with a 51-3 win over Muskingum (Ohio) last Saturday. The Purple Raiders allowed just 93 yards in the game (30 in the first half). Mount Union (9-0) closes out the regular season this Saturday at Marietta (5-4).
