Arizona Wildcats flip 3-star OL Luke Eckardt from Northern Illinois

The Arizona Wildcats landed a second commit for its 2021 recruiting class this week, when three-star offensive lineman Luke Eckardt, who was committed to Northern Illinois since April, flipped to the UA.

Eckardt, a Richmond, Illinois native, announced his commitment on Twitter Friday evening. He's the second player to commit to Arizona; Canyon del Oro High School star running back Stevie Rocker pledged to the Wildcats on Thursday.

Proud to announce my commitment to the University of Arizona #Gocats @CoachDeVan @CoachSumlin
