Breakdown: Offensive Guard offers

Arizona has offered numerous offensive guards. Read on for a complete look at the offers and how Arizona is doing with each.

WildcatAuthority.com continues to look at the Arizona offers that have been extended and now we take a closer look at the offensive guards. The Wildcats are doing well with a handful and seem to be in good position to land a solid class at the position.

Sean Harlow: Arizona recently offered the San Clemente (Calif.) three-star and the Wildcats are doing well. The entire Pac-12 except for USC, UCLA, and Stanford have offered and it will definitely come down to teams within the conference.

Harlow is trying to visit each school involved in his recruitment, thus Arizona is in good position to land an unofficial. It definitely won't be easy to land Harlow, but Arizona can't complain about the position it is in and the UA has a legitimate shot at this point in time.

Kenneth Santa Marina: The 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman basically has his choice of schools, so it is unrealistic that Arizona will land him. At this point, we feel comfortable saying it would basically be a shock if he headed to Arizona.

Richy Klepal: It could be tough to get Klepal out of Florida, but Arizona at least has a chance for an official visit. Rod Smith has done a good job in this recruitment and Arizona will likely have success in Florida in the future.

The issue here is that Klepal is going to have a ton of offers and is the type of player that will likely see his recruitment increase dramatically. Chances are not great that he will wind up at Arizona, but the Wildcats are certainly sticking around right now.

Scott Quessenberry: Quessenberry has seen his recruitment go national and location will not play a role in his decision. In reality, Quessenberry is going to take his time making a decision, so it is difficult seeing where Arizona stands at this time.

Wisconsin, UCLA, and Michigan are in strong position right now, but that can certainly change. Arizona definitely has some work to do, but the time factor will be in its favor and we should know a lot more about this recruitment in the next few months.

Derek Edwards: If Arizona can convince Edwards to go away from home, there is a good chance he will head to Arizona. Edwards was offered by the Wildcats due in large part to Mike Barwis, who helped pass his tape along to the current coaching staff.

Since then, the Wildcats have been aggressively recruiting Edwards and are currently in a great place. We don't necessarily see Edwards making a quick decision, but there is a lot in Arizona's favor right now. The key here will be watching to see what type of offers Edwards gets this summer, as that can go a long way in determining how the rest of his recruitment plays out.

Mason Friedline: Friedline is likely to stay in the northwest, although Arizona will push for a visit. He says he is not close to making a decision, so if the UA can get him on campus, it has a chance to make things interesting.

As of now, it is difficult to say Arizona should be confident about anything, but it will be interesting to see how this recruitment plays out if a decision does not come by the end of the summer or if the Wildcats can get him on campus.

Patrick Joseph: Joseph is probably Arizona State's to lose, but it is interesting that he has not made a decision yet.

The longer Joseph takes, the better for Arizona it likely is. The Wildcats would likely to get him on campus again, especially in an official capacity. However, that will not be easy, especially with location coming into play. Joseph choosing Arizona would not be shocking, but the Wildcats have some work to put in.
