Defensive tackle offers: A closer look

Arizona has offered numerous defensive tackles. Read on to see who has an offer and where the Wildcats stand with each.

Arizona has offered numerous defensive tackles from throughout the nation and it is apparent that it is a position of need. Read on for a look at which players the Wildcats have offered and how they are doing with each.

Eddie Vanderdoes: Arizona recently visited him and the hope is that it can get an official. However, it is extremely unlikely that will happen and even more unlikely that Vanderdoes goes to Arizona.

Simply put, at this point, there are other targets that are likely more worth Arizona's time and efforts because this one is not getting done.

Elijah Qualls: We are putting Qualls as a defensive tackle, but he can really play numerous positions. There are not many, if any, other players like Qualls because he is quick for his size and is a legitimate option on both sides of the ball.

Arizona is doing well in the recruitment, but it still will not be easy to land Qualls because of the attention he is getting. Qualls has already visited campus and Arizona made his first cut. It really would not be a surprise to see the Wildcats make the next one as well.

Arizona is selling Qualls on his ability to play right away, stay close to home, and just be in a system that would help his success. The pitch is working and Qualls is a player Arizona fans should have a close eye on.

Scott Pagano: Arizona was actually one of Pagano's favorites early on in the process and it looked like he was close to deciding on the Wildcats.

Now, he has put off a decision and has 38 offers, including LSU as one of his most recent. It is going to be very difficult to land Pagano now, but Arizona is hoping that the fact it was on him early will lead to an official visit.

The longer Arizona can hang around, the better. However, it looked much better a month ago than it does now.

Joe Fennell: Fennell is playing his recruitment close to the vest, but the general thought is that Arizona may be too far from home. With offers from the Florida schools, it could be hard to convince Fennell to leave the state, although Arizona is definitely trying at this point.

Vita Vea: This could be another recruitment that comes down to Arizona and UCLA. The Wildcats offered and the Bruins followed not long after, as Vea has had positive things to say about both.

Cal is another school that has offered and Vea seems destined to stay in the Pac-12. Arizona is doing well and is in good shape for a visit, but Vea has not given an indication of deciding any time soon.

Kamalei Correa: Oregon State is in good shape in this recruitment, although Correa wants to hit the camp circuit and get more exposure.

Arizona has started to recruit Correa a little harder and will likely to continue to do so, but has some ground to make up. That's not to say that Arizona is in a deep hole, but rather that other schools have been involved a little bit longer.

Derrick Calloway: Calloway is another player that is being quiet with his recruiting process. Arizona is doing just fine in this recruitment from all indications and Calloway is on record as saying that location will not be a big deal.

Arizona is right in the thick of things, but it is difficult to get a true gauge of where the Wildcats really are in Calloway's recruitment.
