Gunnell has the makings of a collegiate quarterback. He stands 6-foot-5, 205 pounds and possesses a cannon for an arm. Along with his tremendous arm strength, Gunnell is accurate with his throws (completed 73 percent of his passes during his sophomore campaign) and is incredibly mobile in the pocket.
While landing an offer from a program like Arizona would be an accomplishment for some recruits, Gunnell possesses an outstanding offer list. The Houston, Texas native holds offers from Texas A&M, Florida State, LSU and Georgia, just to name a few. According to reports, LSU’s offensive coordinator Matt Canada sees Gunnell as a top priority for the Tigers.
The other two offensive recruits to receive offers from Arizona yesterday were two class of 2018 4-star wide receivers, Isaah Crocker and Devon Cooley.

Both Crocker and Cooley possess top end speed, which allows them to create separation from opposing defensive backs. The two receivers were utilized as downfield threats during their junior campaigns.
Like Gunnell, it might be tough for the Wildcats to land Crocker or Cooley because are both projected to end up at opposing Pac-12 programs. Crocker is currently projected to head to Cal while Cooley is projected to land at UCLA.
