Arizona’s Early Commits are in:

Paul Fontaine
DE, #2
Galena Park, TX
Bench: 380
S: 570
Discipline: Excellent
As a star DE at Galena Park, TX High school, Fontaine worked his hardest to become a star at DE. He was initially a very sickly young boy but through training (and Jesus) he grew into one of Houston’s top DEs and White MCs. Paul Wall took him under his wing and showed him how to drop sweet chopped and screwed rhymes. He was thinking about going to Texas, but decided against it.


Derrick Johnson
Salem, OH
180 lbs
FA: A-
Hands: B
Bench: 325
S: 520
Discipline: Avg


Salem, OH has deep Quaker roots and played a major role in the Women’s Suffrage movement as well.  Johnson’s family is the only remaining African American family that was directly saved by the town.  In 1833 his ancestors were purchased by the town in order to give them their freedom.  But Salem, OH is not a town of idiots, they made them build a primative shopping mall, buggy wash, and baseball field before giving them true freedom.  There were other families who were bought by the town, but eventually they grew sick of the Quaker’s smug self-satisfaction as a town of liberated women, bicycle riders, and vegetarians.  The San Francisco of the Midwest they called it! It was burned to the ground in 1907, and rebuilt by Irish immigrants.  Derrick is the result of the two cultures coming together.  He both loves and hates House of Pain. He also hits really really hard.  Black and Irish pain comes through in every one of his hits.

Marcus White
Roxboro, NC
6’2″, 200 lbs
A- Arm Strength
Bench: 265
S: 385
P: Poor
Disc: Average

Marcus White, is actually white. He is the #2 QB in the nation and fully plans to start at Arizona as a freshman. It will be tough considering: a. Josh Selmon is a senior, b. Dane Wright is a Junior, c. Chad Smith is a redshirt Fr. However it looks like he will probably redshirt and compete with Dane Wright in 2013.

Roxboro, is in the middle of nowhere North Carolina, it’s half white, half black. Only 8% of the city has a Bachelor’s Degree or higher, and now it looks like White will be the first in his family to obtain that degree. He’s the first in his family to go to college. His bitter father has repeatedly told him not to go to college. Repeatedly asking him “what’s the point? you just gonna die.”

Marcus has dreams of a degree in Sports Marketing and a job with the Carolina Hurricanes.


Paul Harrison
Tulare, CA
Wt 202
40: 4.46
Field Awr: A
Hands: A-
Bench: 340
Sq: 520
Pot: Avg.
Discipline: Poor

Tulare is an interesting place with a lot of Portuguese people because of the dairy farms in the region. Harrison has a healthy hatred of the Portuguese, and believes firmly that they should be invaded by Spain and their language should be destroyed.

Also of note, Tulare has the 2nd highest teen pregnancy rate in the United States. Harrison thought that he had impregnated two girls during his senior year, and planned to marry both of them. But subsequent paternity tests proved he was not the father and he decided to come to Arizona. Although there are some who think that boosters Myles V. and Mike B. paid off the women to forge paternity tests.
