Running back offers: A closer look

Arizona has offered numerous running backs so far. Read on for a closer look at each offer, including a breakdown of each recruitment.

At the request of readers, we will be giving closer looks to Arizona's offers in the next few days. Here is a look at the running backs that the Wildcats have offered and the general competition for them as it stands now.

David Williams: Williams is probably the most highly regarded of the Arizona offers right now and the toughest pull as well. He has over 20 offers from some of the best schools in the country. In addition, Williams is looking for a pro-style offense, but Arizona will likely make a pitch on how many carries he would get should he come to Tucson. Still, it will be very difficult for Arizona to land the four-star back.

Craig Lee: Arizona just offered Lee, so it is a bit difficult to see where exactly the Wildcats stand. We do know that Lee will likely stay in the Pac-12 and a USC offer would likely end things. UCLA has already offered and could be tough to overcome, but Lee wants to go to a school that is run heavy and obviously Arizona fits the bill. At this point, we would not be surprised if Arizona is able to get a visit and Lee is one of the backs to keep a closer eye on.

Pierre Cormier: Cormier is one of the highest backs on Arizona's board and it makes perfect sense considering how well he fits in with the offense. Cormier's high school coach is very fond of what Arizona is going to do offensively and is clear when he tells Cormier that he would be a very good fit. Cormier was going to commit to UCLA, but held off and now the Arizona offer has made things interesting. The Wildcats have a very legitimate shot here and our guess is that this comes down to UCLA and Arizona.

Adam Taylor: Taylor is difficult to reach, but all indications are that he is going to be a tough pull. He has offers from Arkansas, LSU, and other major schools. Arizona is ahead of the game in terms of offering him somewhat early, but that still will not make things easier when it comes to landing him.

Jalen Ortiz: Ortiz wants to take his time with a decision, but the word is that UCLA, Washington, and Arizona State are the top three schools for him. Arizona is right there, but likely has some work to do, which is going to be the case because of location. Kids in the Phoenix area are simply going to need more convincing to go to Arizona than Arizona State and that will remain the case until the UA is more successful. Arizona will likely have Ortiz on campus in the next few months and we should know a lot more after that.

Davonte Young: Arizona was the first school to offer Young and it is paying off. He wants to take his time with a decision, but he is a teammate of Beau Boyster and Arizona is in solid shape. Young is one of the backs on this list that we feel will be considering Arizona until the end. Like a couple of others on this list, Young should probably have a close eye on him.

Joseph Ajeigbe: Arizona was Ajeigbe's first offer and he has since added an offer from Duke while working for others. Ajeigbe fits in well with Norco's long line of small power backs and his recruitment will likely take off this summer. Arizona was smart to be the first school to offer and is doing well with the recruitment, although there is plenty of time remaining.

Zachary Green: Another back that Arizona was the first to offer, Green could also be the first to commit. He wants to decide before his senior season and admits that if Arizona is his only offer, he is going to have some thinking to do. Green is high on Arizona and will be on campus next weekend. Once he gets on campus, we will know a lot more about the recruitment, but Arizona is doing very well.

Mauriece Lee: Arizona is the only offer for Lee and he is currently working for others. Obviously the Wildcats are in good shape, but Lee is in no rush to decide. While Lee is unlikely to land an offer from USC, it would probably end his recruitment. As of now, it would not be a surprise to see this become an in-state battle figuring that ASU offers.

Lavon Coleman: Arizona recently offered Coleman and this will be a Pac-12 battle, as Washington, Utah, Oregon State, and Washington State have offered. Coleman will almost certainly add more offers and would love to land one in the SEC. As of now, Coleman is taking all five of his officials and with Arizona having just recently offered, it has plenty time to get more involved.
