Mesa (Ariz.) Mountain View four-star tight end Jackson Bowers is taking an official visit to Arizona during the second weekend of June.

He announced the news of his Twitter account Thursday.

The Wildcats are one of Bowers top seven schools along with Alabama, Auburn, BYU, Ole Miss, Oregon and Washington.

Bowers is the No. 268 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

He is the fifth-ranked recruit from the state of Arizona after Pinnacle Phoenix five-star tight end Duce Robinson, Chandler (Ariz.) four-star defensive lineman A’mauri Washington, Chandler (Ariz.) Basha four-star athlete Cole Martin and Scottsdale (Ariz.) Mountain Ridge four-star wide receiver Deric English.

The Wildcats are the current favorites to land Jackson Bowers, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.

RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college. 

It factors in machine learning, expert predictions, social sentiment, visits, and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.

Arizona has four commits in its 2023 recruiting class, which ranks 41st in the 2023 On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Ranking. Colorado Springs (Colo.) Vista Ridge four-star quarterback Brayden Dorman — the top prospect from the state of Colorado — is the headliner of the recruiting class.

Bowers currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $13.5k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
