The Arizona Wildcats scored huge with the verbal commitment of quarterback William Tuitama (6-3, 210, 4.8) from Stockton (Calif.) Saint Mary’s. Tuitama wowed them at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto with his rocket like arm.
“Willie is very excited,” Tuitama’s mom said. “He has committed to Arizona. Willie isn’t home right now he’s competing in a passing league tournament.”
The Wildcats get one of the best drop back quarterbacks on the west coach in Tuitama.
Arizona wins the services of Tuitama over other offers from Nebraska and Washington. Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Fresno State were also in pursuit of Tuitama.
There could be a lot of quarterbacks from the Golden State who will sign high Division I scholarships in California for the class of 2005, but none will have a stronger arm than Tuitama.
As a junior, Tuitama o split time with a senior but still threw for 1,034 yards and four touchdowns.
Tuitama also has outstanding bloodlines; his uncle is former USC and now Miami Dolphin great linebacker Junior Seau.
Landing a quarterback the caliber of Tuitama is huge feather in the camp of Mike Stoops and his staff. It gives Arizona fans something to be fired up about.
Tuitama is a big boost in the right direction for the Arizona program.
Great get for the Wildcats.
