One of Southern California’s top defensive backs in the class of 2022 announced his commitment to the University of Arizona on Monday.

Tacario Davis Tacario Davis 6'2" | DB Millikan | 2022 State CA from Millikan High (Long Beach) chose Arizona over Arizona State and Kansas. The 6-foot-2 cornerback is the No. 11 defensive back in California’s 2022 class according to Prep Redzone and the No. 90 player overall in the state.

Davis took an unofficial visit to the school on Sunday and committed within 24 hours.

“I think Arizona is the best place for me to get developed, not just as a player but a person,” Davis told Greg Biggins of 247Sports. “For me, it’s not all about football, it’s about player development and I think the new Arizona staff can help me become a better man and I’m really blessed with the opportunity.”

Davis would have had many more offers if there was a traditional fall football season and spring. Millikan will start its football season in March and other schools will be sure to continue to target him despite his early commitment.
