Lawson impressed with Arizona

2014 quarterback JaJuan Lawson recently visited Arizona and came away impressed. Read on for a closer look at what sticks out, the other schools involved, and more.

Casa Grande (Calif.) quarterback JaJuan Lawson is only a sophomore, but he is still one of the more talented players in the country and is coming off a season in which he put up big numbers passing and running the ball.

Despite putting up impressive numbers, Lawson sees room for improvement.

"Last season was kind of up-and-down," Lawson said. "I had some games where I played well and there were some others where I let the team down a little bit. I tried to take the good with the bad and learn for next season.

"I can get so much better if I put in the work. The main thing is to just continue to improve as a player and be a leader who works hard every day."

Lawson is already looking at possible college destinations.

"I want to make sure that wherever I play is the best place for me academically and athletically," Lawson said. "I've been to UCLA, USC and Arizona on unofficial visits and all those schools passed the test."

Lawson says that Arizona made a solid impression on his visit.

"The Arizona visit went very well," Lawson said. "I got to check the place out and it was all really impressive. I also got to talk with the coaches and they were very enthusiastic and have really big plans.

"On the field, everything is non-stop, players are going everywhere and I like the up-tempo style a lot. They see me as a good fit in their system, and I really agree with them. I like to pass the ball but also run when the time calls for it."

Lawson is still a ways away from making a decision, as he wants to take more visits.

"I want to continue to check out schools and just want to get a better idea about them," Lawson said. "There are so many good schools out west. California stands out. I grew up rooting for the Golden Bears. The place has great academics, is close to my home and has a good tradition."
