In a team meeting on Tuesday, Arizona head coach Kevin Sumlin surprised walk-on long snapper Seth MacKellar with a full-ride scholarship.

The 5-foot-11-inch, 204-pound MacKellar, a San Juan Capistrano, California native, was the UA's primary long snapper on field goals, punts and extra points in 2019. The sophomore appeared in 11 games last season and recorded one tackle against UCLA. 

After four years at J Serra Catholic High School, MacKellar was named an Under Armour All-American for long snapping.
