Upland (Calif.) defensive back Osahon Irabor (6-0, 183), an all-Baseline League pick in 2007, picked up his first offer on Thursday and it came from the Pac-10.

"Osahon received his first offer from Arizona," said Upland recruiting coordinator Mike Esquivel. "Coach Tim Kish, who is now Arizona’s Inland Empire recruiter spoke with head football Coach Tim Salter yesterday afternoon to inform him about their offer."

Irabor is the second Upland player Arizona has offered, joining his teammate Josh Nunes, a quarterback the Wildcats offered last fall.

“I felt really honored to get my first offer from a Pac-10 school," said Irabor. "It was great news. Coach Kish was very excited to extend the offer to me and expressed his excitement about me visiting the university and getting to know what Arizona football is all about."

Irabor's offer came as a defensive back, but the Wildcat staff also could give him a shot at offense.

"Coach Kish loved my abilities as a cover corner and even went as far as to say that they would even consider me as a receiver. Coach Kish was very happy with me as an individual as well. He stressed that offering me a scholarship wasn’t just based on how I play on the field, but how I conduct myself as an individual," said Irabor.

Irabor is coming off a season in which he had 49 tackles, three interceptions, two blocked punts and a safety and added 16 receptions for 325 yards and two touchdowns.

Academically, Irabor has a 3.5 GPA.
