Arizona Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez's daughter is a cheerleader at UA.

Soon, RichRod's son will join his father and sister Saturday nights at Arizona Stadium.

On Saturday, Rhett Rodriguez announced via Twitter that he has committed to play football for his dad in Tucson.

Rhett Rodriguez is a three-year starter at quarterback for Catalina Foothills High School in Tucson and will be a part of UA's 2017 class.

"RhettRod" definitely fits his father's offensive scheme. Per AZ Desert Swarm, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder threw for 20 touchdowns with just two interceptions and rushed for 624 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, leading Catalina Foothills to a 9-3 record.
