Four-star recruit Braxton Burmeister out of La Jolla Country Day has committed to Oregon. 


The quarterback was supposed to enroll early and be on campus this week at the U of A, but received a last-minute offer from Oregon after Willie Taggert was named Ducks head coach.

Burmeister had already de-committed from Arizona once, in March, and then recommitted again in May.

The Wildcats quaterback situation remains unclear, as Brandon Dawkins is the incumbent and possible favorite to win the starting job next season, who will be competing with Khalil Tate.  The U of A also welcomes head coach Rich Rodriguez's son, Rhett, as another piece of the quarterback competition puzzle.

It's possible the Wildcats could look to add another quarterback to fill Burmeister's spot in the class.
