Bishop Gorman junior defensive end Adam Plant Jr. made an oral commitment to Arizona on Wednesday night, announcing his decision on Twitter.
Plant’s commitment is nonbinding, and the first day he can sign a letter of intent is Feb. 7. Arizona’s coaches cannot comment until that time.
“I am honored and proud to announce that I will be committing to the University Of Arizona,” Plant wrote.
