Receiver offers: A closer look

Arizona has offered numerous receivers and is doing well with a handful of them. Read on for a closer look at where each receiver stands with Arizona.

Each week, we will feature a position and the recruits that Arizona has offered. This week, we will take a look at receivers, as the Wildcats are in good shape with a handful.

Sebastian LaRue: Arizona's recruitment of LaRue actually has not been intense when compared to other schools. As of now, there does not seem to be an indication that there is much interest in Arizona on his part. Of course, that could change, but LaRue just does not seem like a likely target as of now.

Devon Allen: Arizona would love to land Allen because of his speed, but the receiver has seen his recruitment go national and that could be tough. This is another recruit that has been recruited and around Arizona State for much longer than Arizona, so the UA coaching staff is going to have a lot of work to do in order to land him.

At this point, Arizona would like to get him on campus and considering that he wants to take five official visits, the hope is that Arizona will have a successful season or some momentum to build on in order to be more involved with Allen.

Francis Owusu: Owusu is the younger brother of Chris, who plays for Stanford. That automatically makes Stanford one of the schools to beat and UCLA, Nebraska, and Notre Dame are in there as well.

Basically, this is another receiver that Arizona is going to have great difficulty landing and it likely does not have much of a chance unless it can get him on campus soon.

Marcell Ateman: Missouri is in good shape for Ateman, but he wants to take his time making a decision. As of now, Ateman does not claim any leaders and says that he will likely visit numerous schools this summer before deciding. If Arizona wants to be in contention, it has to get him on campus in the next few months.

Demorea Stringfellow: Stringfellow's recruitment has gone national, but Arizona has a good chance of sticking around.

Stringfellow is good friends with current Wildcat Terrence Miller, who has told him numerous positive things about Arizona. Stringfellow would not mind making an earlier decision, but wants to visit a few schools first. At this point, Arizona is in solid shape for a visit, but a lot can change. This is definitely one of the receivers to keep a close eye on.

Jake Roh: Arizona is the likely leader for Roh, but he does not seem to be close to making a decision. The Arizona coaching staff has a good relationship with him due to Craig Roh's recruitment and there is a good chance it will pay off.

Roh wants to take some visits and will actually be at Oregon State next weekend. UCLA is also hanging around, but has yet to offer. Roh wants to decide before his senior year and Arizona is definitely in good shape as of now.

Samajie Grant: Arizona has already had Grant on campus and will have his teammate, Bryan Harper, in an Arizona uniform next year.

The Wildcats are in good shape, but this seems like an inevitable Arizona/UCLA battle that could go on for a bit. There might be some other schools that get involved, but Arizona has a great relationship with the Colony coaching staff and will be in this one until the end.

Marquion Lane: Arizona is doing well in Lane's recruitment, but it definitely will not be easy to get him away from the South.

Florida State, Arkansas, and others will likely be able to land visits or at least keep heavy interest and it is never easy to land a kid from Florida at a school like Arizona. It will be interesting to see if the coaching staff can at least get him on campus and then proceed from there.
