Arizona makes an impression on Solomon

Anu Solomon visited Arizona on Monday. Where do the Wildcats now stand? What's the next step? Read on for those answers and more.

Arizona is looking to land numerous quarterbacks in the 2013 class and one of the highest priorities is Las Vegas Bishop Gorman signal caller Anu Solomon.

Solomon was in attendance at Monday's practice and came away impressed with what he was able to see throughout the day.

"The visit was good, I really liked it," Solomon said. "I went on an unofficial and got to take a look at the campus and some of the things on what Arizona is all about, their weight room, the new facilities they will have next year and I saw practice, which was good and real competitive. I liked that."

Solomon has made no secret of the fact that he was leaning towards playing in a pro-style offense, but Rodriguez and the coaching staff did a good job of selling him on the offense the Wildcats will be running.

"Coach Rodriguez was saying that the majority of the NFL teams are running the spread now and the quarterbacks getting drafted in the first round or second round come from a spread offense," Solomon said. "I feel I can quickly adapt to the spread and it is not a huge deal.

"It is not as complex as the pro-style offense because the play is two sentences long and the spread is two words or not even that much and I can see myself playing in it."

Solomon does not know where his recruitment is headed next, but he knows that he would like to see some more schools.

"I don't even really know," he said. "I am looking forward to visiting other schools and seeing what they have to offer. If they offer more than what Arizona has to offer me then maybe I will step up my interest in those schools, but I am quite impressed with what Arizona has to offer."

There is no rush for Solomon, but he would like to make a decision before his senior year starts.

"I would say I would like to decide around the beginning of the summer," Solomon said. "I am trying to keep my options open.

"I am going to go to UCLA and then I am trying to go to USC, Utah, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and a couple of schools that I am interested in. I really like what Arizona has to offer though and it is a nice place."
