Versatile lineman gives Arizona pledge

Arizona received its second commitment this week when lineman Cayman Bundage decided to give his verbal to the Wildcats. Why did he make the decision? What position will he play? Read on for more.

Arizona received its second verbal commitment of the week when 6-foot-2, 280-pound Oklahoma City Douglass High School lineman Cayman Bundage wrapped up his recruitment by pledging to the Wildcats.

For Bundage, his commitment to UA just felt right.

"I've been looking at Arizona since I got the offer from them," Bundage said. "I've been looking into them pretty hard and when I woke up this morning, I just decided that it's where I wanted to go."

Although Bundage has not yet seen the Arizona football program up close, he felt that he had all of the information he needed to make his decision.

"I like the state of Arizona," Bundage said. "I like their program, they have a nice program. I just like everything really, it's a good school."

The three-star prospect, whom chose Arizona over offers from Arkansas, Missouri, and Tulsa, has developed a strong relationship with his lead recruiter Seth Littrell, who was excited to hear that Bundage had pledged to the Wildcats.

"Coach Littrell has been recruiting me," Bundage said. "We're real cool. He came down here and visited me earlier this year. We get along well and we have a good relationship.

"I just told him that I wanted to be a Wildcat and he said that he was hyped up."

Bundage will be arriving to Arizona as an offensive lineman and says he plans to contribute where the coaches need him the most.

"They are recruiting me as a center, guard," Bundage said. "It is just a way for me to get into the program and once I get in and get settled down I will get in and help because I like both sides of the ball.

"Whatever I can do to help out the team. I am going to work hard on both sides of the ball."

Bundage made a trip out to Missouri earlier in the spring to watch the Tigers' spring football game, and plans on making his way out to Tucson soon to check out his future home.

"I've been to Arizona, but not to the university," Bundage said. "I think I will visit there soon. I'm looking forward to visiting. I'm going to call coach and he's going to give me some dates when I can get down there."

With only a non-binding verbal pledge to the Wildcats, and Signing Day several months away, the possibility remains for the 6-foot-2, 280-pound prospect to switch his pledge to another school. However, Bundage does not see a switch in his future and is happy to be a Wildcat.

"I'm 100 percent Arizona," Bundage said. "I am done with recruiting and I am an Arizona Wildcat."
