Dotson looking at options

Offensive lineman Denzell Dotson may not have an offer from Arizona yet, but that doesn't mean he is not getting a lot of attention from schools throughout the country.

There are numerous prospects in the state of Arizona to keep an eye on this year. Some of them are considered to be elite players, while others still have a little bit more to prove.

One player that is hoping to prove himself is 6-foot-2, 280-pound Glendale Cactus offensive lineman Denzell Dotson.

"Recruiting is going good," Dotson said. "I am getting looks from Oregon, Nebraska, Northwestern, and then have an offer from Montana and a few other schools are looking at me like Arizona."

Arizona has yet to offer, but will likely keep an eye on Dotson as he gets back into action and possibly attends a camp later this year.

"Nebraska and Arizona have told me that they want to really look at my tape and how I play this season," Dotson said. "Nebraska has sent me stuff in the mail and Oregon has sent me stuff like every day.

"New Mexico also has been talking to me a lot and Montana, Northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Washington State are the schools that have offered me so far."

Although Arizona has not offered Dotson, he has visited the campus and came away impressed with what he saw.

"I went down there for junior day and I met the coaching staff and got to see the facilities and the atmosphere was great," he said.

As far as other visits he may take, Dotson has a good idea of the majority of his summer plans.

"I went to the Nike Camp in April and did well there," he said. "This summer I am going to Tennessee's camp and then after that it will probably be Georgia or Auburn depending on which one fits better."

In terms of what Dotson is looking for, the biggest factor will be how well he fits into a program.

"I want to see if I fit in there," he said. "I also want a place where I can get a good education. I want to be able to play and get in there and help."

There is no specific timetable for Dotson to make a decision, but he knows who he will be consulting when it is time to make one.

"I would like to make a final decision ultimately with my family, who is going to help me out," he said. "We will look at positives and negatives. I am not sure when, but we are going to look at all my choices and see the best fit."
