The target list for Arizona continues to grow as time passes and the coaching staff is doing its work diligently in the state of California. One prospect the Wildcats are watching closely is Tustin (Calif.) product David Maka. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound center prospect is being chased by many schools on the west coast and UA is right in the race for his services.
Maka will be venturing to the Arizona campus very soon for a visit.
"I am going to Arizona next weekend for their spring game," Maka said.
Maka is being watched by several other programs but he only mentions one that is actively recruiting him consistently outside of UA.
"Besides Arizona, I hear from Washington the most," he said.
Maka's recruitment could gain steam soon, but he has already compiled a list of favorites and they all happen to reside in the Pac-12.
"USC, Washington and Arizona are my top three right now," Maka said.
Obviously, most of the attention surrounding Maka is going to come from the Pac-12 and other conferences on the west coast. As his recruitment picks up, expect more schools to get involved and Maka is opening to the possibility of going to college in a different region.
"It would be nice travel around," Maka said. "If not, then I'll stay in the Pac-12."
Football isn't the only thing important to Maka's decision. He also wants to go to a school that's going to provide him with a quality degree."
"I will be looking at the football program, but I want to go to a school that will also offer me a great education," Maka said.
Maka's recruitment could stretch out a while, especially if he continues to garner more attention. There is a long period of time ahead before signing day, so Maka isn't in any hurry to make a decision. Does the offensive lineman have a timetable for a decision, though?
"Not really," Maka said.
