Antonio Parks, a defensive back from Reserve, LA., is the first high school player to fax in his letter-of-intent to Arizona on Signing Day. Parks is one of five players from Louisiana expected to sign today with the Wildcats, who will bring in about 20 new players today for coach Rich Rodriguez. Arizona's class starts the day ranked No. 37 nationally by Rivals.com

Several more players have faxed in their letter-of-intents this morning to the Arizona Wildcats, including Keenan Walker, an offensive tackle from Scottsdale Chaparral High School. Walker is one of Arizona's top recruits, rated the top offensive tackle in the West by Scout.com

Another player to watch is running back Orlando Bradford from Shreveport, La. He signed with Arizona after turning down an offer from new Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh last week.
