Simeon offensive lineman Fabbians Ebbele announced his decision Wednesday to play at Arizona.

Ebbele, who is 6-foot-8 and 295 pounds, chose the Wildcats over Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Kansas and Northern Illinois.

"He's an excellent pass blocker," Simeon coach Jesse Chick said. "I can see him playing at offensive tackle. He's a good run blocker, too. He did a great job for us. We counted how many times the quarterback got sacked from his side all year, and it was almost none at all. He's very intelligent. He's a student of the game."
