Receiver could be close to offer

Arizona visited Gehrig Dieter last week and an offer could be coming. Read on for his thoughts on that possible offer, recruiting in general, and more.

Gehrig Dieter is seeing his recruiting attention increase as of late as it has resulted in an official visit to Kansas this past weekend and possible offer from Arizona among others.

"Recruiting is going pretty good," Dieter said. "I took an official to Kansas this past weekend and a lot of schools have stopped by to see me."

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound South Bend (Indiana) Washington athlete was visited by a member of the UA coaching staff last week and now believes an offer is possible.

‘Arizona visited me last week and Tony Gibson told me he liked my film and he would bring it back to Arizona to show it to the rest of the staff and then go from there," Dieter said.

While he would not name any favorites, Dieter admits that an offer from the Wildcats would them in good shape to land the three-star.

"If Arizona offered me I would definitely take an official visit later," he said. "Coach showed me pictures of what the campus and football stadium is going to look like and it was super nice. If they offered I would take a visit and see if I feel comfortable there."

In addition to feeling comfortable, Dieter has a good idea of what else he will be looking for as he tries to find the best college for him.

"I am looking for a good relationship with the coaches and a good solid program," he said. "I also want a university with a good business school and good facilities where it helps a player get better."

Dieter is the national record holder for receiving yards in a single game (437) and receiving yards per catch (26.9). He also holds Indiana state records in most receiving yards in a career (4,326), a season (2,171), a game (437) and in a 4A State playoff game (168). Thus, it is not surprising that he is getting the recruiting attention he likely deserves.

As Dieter goes through the process and gets that attention, he will be looking for the right fit in order to be able to end his recruitment early.

"I want to decide as soon as I can because I am going to be enrolling in January, so hopefully I can find a school soon," he said.
