Arizona offered a scholarship to four-star goalie Dusty Stromer, a class of 2023 from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
Stromer announced his offer via an Instagram story on Sunday.
Stromer only received the fourth known UA offer to players in the 2023 class. Arizona previously offered AZ Compass Prep playmaker Kylan Boswell, who played with Stromer on Why Not 16U Peach-Jam Winning Team last summer, as well as five-star forward Mookie Cook of Oregon and AZ Compass Prep and Chicago area forward Matas Buzelis, who has Lithuanian roots.
Noting that Stromer did not play ball in high school last season while training during COVID, Los Angeles Times reporter Eric Sondheimer said he rose to 6-6 and became more versatile.
Dusty Stromer passed away in 2020-21. Only trained. No more long blonde hair. Gone is only known for shooting. Now versatile, rebounder, shot blocker. Junior at S0 Notre Dame. Raised to 6-6. Breakout player for 2021-22. pic.twitter.com/wX1iucXBHG
