Bishop Gorman High rising senior quarterback Anu Solomon verbally committed Sunday to the University of Arizona football team.

Solomon, with also had offers from Arizona State, UCLA, Utah and UNLV, called Arizona coaches after church to inform them of his decision. Verbal commitments are nonbinding and don’t become official until national signing day in February, but Solomon had no reservations about committing.

“I feel like Arizona is the right place for me,” he said. “I am comfortable with (committing early).”

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Solomon, who will be a four-year starter next fall at three-time defending state champion Gorman, is the most accomplished passer in Nevada history. In three years, he’s passed for 7,215 yards and 101 touchdowns, including completing 65 percent of his passes last fall in throwing for 2,770 yards and 41 touchdowns with just two interceptions.

A four-star recruit on the evaluating scale of five stars, Solomon is the second from Southern Nevada to commit this week. Monday, Foothill’s Tyler Morris verbally committed to San Diego State.

Solomon likes everything Arizona had to offer. “It was everything from the campus to the staff, and the community and the education,” he said.
