Arizona's identity on the offensive side of the ball over the past few years has been its ability to gain a massive amount of yards through the air. The Wildcats have done this by bringing in some of the best receiving talent west of the Mississippi River and, in doing so, they have become a more desirable destination than UA was prior to the implementation of the spread offense.
Passing camp was held on campus just a couple of weeks ago and it saw some of Arizona's top receiving recruits participate in the event. One such prospect the Wildcats have their eyes on is Chandler wide receiver Javon Williams. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound prospect enjoyed the experience in Tucson and took time speaking with the UA staff.
"It was a real fun trip," Williams said. "I had fun out there. I met more of the coaches."
Williams is currently being pursued by Wildcats' defensive coordinator Tim Kish. The two talked during his time at camp and have been able to establish a strong rapport during the recruiting process.
"I talked to coach Kish," Williams said. "Me and him have a pretty good relationship, so it was pretty cool talking to him again."
UA's passing attack has continuously grown over the past three seasons. The Wildcats passing attack is now an attractive recruiting tool when pursuing wide receivers and Williams likes the style Arizona's offense plays.
"They throw the ball a lot and I like to catch the ball a lot during games," he said.
It's still a long ways away before Williams has to make a decision. For now, Williams doesn't have anyone in the lead for his services.
"I am just taking recruiting process slow and letting all my offers come in – as many as possible," Williams said. "I am going to take it slow and narrow it down as the season passes."
While there aren't necessarily any leaders for Williams at this point in time, he does enjoy pass-heavy offenses. This may play a factor down the road in his recruitment, but he isn't quick to favor anyone currently.
"Some schools stand out more than others schools because they pass the ball and what I am looking for in a school," Williams said. "But I am not picking any school over another school at this point."
There are several months before Williams will have to choose where he plays college football. Expect him to take all the time he can before he announces his decision.
"I am going to make my decision on signing day," Williams said.
