With Rich Rodriguez currently compiling his coaching staff, there will almost certainly be contact made with both current commits and recruits they happen to target. One commit that seems to be solid with Arizona is 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman Logan Stott. The big man from St. George (Utah) Pineview plans to stay solid with UA unless there is an unforeseen turn of events.
"I'm still committed unless something drastic happens or if something really goes wrong and they drop my offer or something" Stott said.
Stott is excited about the potential to play for Rodriguez and was satisfied with UA's hiring of the coach.
"I was ecstatic," Stott said. "I think it's amazing. It's a great hire. It had Urban Meyer's recommendations. It couldn't have been better."
Often when schools overhaul the coaching staff there is a change in on-field philosophy that can cause recruits and commits to change their desire of wanting to play there. Stott doesn't see any potential problems arising as he feels he is already somewhat familiar with Rodriguez's offensive system.
"It's what we run at my high school," Stott said. "So it's totally fine with me."
Stott hasn't had the opportunity to get in communication with Rodriguez and understands that it's a busy time for the new UA head coach. Stott plans on getting in touch with Rodriguez, but prefers to let him get settled first.
"I'm in no hurry," Stott said. "They have plenty to take care of right now. I'm the least of their concerns. It doesn't really matter. I don't need any special treatment."
Stott was originally recruited by offensive line coach Robert Anae. Stott has met with Anae on several occasions, but the coach's status with the Wildcats doesn't seem like it will affect Stott's commitment.
"He flew to town in St. George and offered me a scholarship," Stott said. "I've met him a few times but other than that it's pretty loose. I don't know him very well."
Stott still has a full season of high school football left in 2012. He has had the opportunity to make a trip to visit to the Arizona campus in the past, but plans on taking an official with the new staff in place sometime in the future.
"I have already made unofficial visits," Stott said. "But yeah I'll take an official visit for sure. Whenever I am allowed to, but I am not sure of an exact date."
Stott remains solid to Arizona
