Arizona visits four-star linebacker

Arizona's coaching staff was on the road on Thursday. Read inside to see one four-star it visited and his thoughts on Arizona, a possible visit, and more.

South Bend (Indiana) Washington athlete David Perkins was recruited by Arizona's previous staff, but the recruitment died off a bit. Now, with a new staff in place, Arizona has picked up its recruitment of the 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete with hopes of getting him on campus.

Besides Arizona getting involved again, Perkins says that his recruitment has played out like normal as of late.

"Nothing is really new," Perkins said. "I am just getting my visits in place and going to school and making sure I am doing well there."

In terms of visits, Perkins only has one future visit scheduled at this time and is still thinking of the others, as he has three open dates.

"I have Ohio State scheduled on January 13 and that is the only one that I have set in stone," he said. "I visited Missouri last week and I am not sure of the other schools I may want to visit."

Arizona visited Perkins on Thursday to let him know that it would be recruiting him hard for the rest of the cycle.

"Tony Gibson stopped by my school and told me they want me a lot," Perkins said. "I would come in and compete for some early playing time. He has wanted me even when he was at Pitt, so he told me they are definitely going to recruit me."

While Perkins is interested in Arizona, he is not ready to put it among some of the other schools recruiting him for the simple reason that he is going through the process slowly.

"I am definitely interested in Arizona, but I am not scheduling any visits or anything because I am not sure what I want to do," he said.

Perkins has a good idea of what he is looking for in a school, as he wants to make sure he will be comfortable wherever he winds up.

"I am looking for a good coaching staff and people I can be around for four years or however long I am there," he said. "I would like an opportunity to play for a good program."
