Warfield talks Arizona offer

When Solomon Warfield participated at the Proving Ground Combine in Arizona in January, he and his father wanted to take a trip to Tuscon to see Arizona's campus. The two didn't get out there, but the interest came full circle on Monday when the Wildcats offered the St. Edward (OH) defensive back.

Two weeks ago, Solomon Warfield was seeking his first offer and hoping to hear from multiple schools. After two Junior Day trips and a surprise phone call on Monday, the St. Edward (OH) defensive back holds three offers and more may be on the way.

"I just got an offer from Arizona!" Warfield messaged Scout.com Monday evening. "It was out of nowhere, I got it as soon as I got home."

The 6-foot, 175-pound DB spoke with Tony Gibson, who is the Assistant Head Coach at Arizona – and works with the safeties as well.

"I was on my way to drop off my brother and when I came back home my head coach called me and said ‘the Arizona coach is going to offer you.' So I went to call him and they said they wanted to offer me.

"It's my first big offer so it was exciting."

Warfield now holds a trio of offers, as the Wildcats, Toldeo Rockets and Bowling Green Falcons have all extended. But it's safe to say that the newest school in the mix stands out a bit more than the rest for Warfield, who added that he is nowhere near close to narrowing things down.

"I don't really know much about the school but I just started talking to the coaches, so hopefully I'll learn a lot more," he said. "I know [Rich Rodriguez] coached at West Virginia, and I know he left.

"He's a real good coach."

Warfield, who wants to wait until his senior year of high school before making a decision, has been busy at Junior Days, and it will continue going forward. He'll head to Champaign on March 10 for the second Illinois Junior Day, and he hopes to visit other schools showing recent interest in the spring, including Michigan, Michigan State, Louisville and Purdue.
