Trending Updates: Arizona’s Freshman Goes Viral For His First Comment To HC After His Record-Breaking Contract…

Three-star quarterback Luke Haugo emphasizes development in his commitment to Arizona…

Gilbert (Ariz.) Higley’s high-potential quarterback, Luke Haugo, announced his commitment to the Arizona Wildcats and their first-year coach, Brent Brennan.

On Tuesday, Arizona secured its second quarterback commitment of the recruiting cycle when in-state prospect Luke Haugo declared for the Wildcats. The new coaching staff has seen a slow start with only three recruits so far, but Haugo joins the group confident in the ongoing transformation in Tucson under coach Brent Brennan. Here’s a detailed look at Arizona’s newest addition:


“They have a system and staff where I feel I can develop and become a successful QB. The staff has achieved great things before. With coach Dino Babers having coached Jimmy G and RGIII, his success with QBs is unparalleled.

“Their message and vision are to build the offense around me and help me develop into a potential pro-type quarterback.”


Oregon State, Rice, and Utah showed strong interest in the talented quarterback from Gilbert (Ariz.) Higley, but the Wildcats quickly secured their third commitment in the cycle.


According to 247Sports rankings, Haugo is the No. 63 quarterback nationally and the No. 8 overall prospect in Arizona for the 2025 class. A standout basketball player as well, the 6-foot-5, 200-pound Haugo has a 63% completion rate, with 2,094 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past three varsity seasons, and has averaged double-digit points in basketball over the last two seasons.

Arizona’s quarterback position has seen significant changes this offseason. Four-star quarterback Demond Williams from Chandler (Ariz.) Basha transferred to Washington with former coach Jedd Fisch. Three-star quarterback Dash Beierly also flipped his commitment from Arizona to Washington. However, three-star Robert McDaniel switched from California to Arizona in late May. This sets up an intriguing position battle between McDaniel, Haugo, former four-star Brayden Dorman, and Cole Tannenbaum after Noah Fifita’s departure.

“It’s a job for anyone, and I’m confident in my abilities and faith that I’ll fit the role,” Haugo said.


247Sports national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins is optimistic about Haugo’s future in Brennan’s offense.

“He has a smooth, easy delivery, and the ball jumps out of his hand,” Biggins noted. “He can get the ball down the field effortlessly and shows great pocket mobility. He can escape pressure, buy time, and throws comfortably while rolling out to his right or left. He can change speeds, throw with touch, make off-platform throws, and has a good overall feel for the position.”
