Athlete considering Arizona

Arizona recently offered Chris Seisay and he could be on the verge of adding more. Read on to see where the Wildcats stand, if he will visit, and more.

Athlete Chris Seisay from American Canyon (Calif.) could soon become one of the more sought after athletes on the west coast and the list of schools chasing him is direct evidence of that.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect has been steadily receiving offers from schools across the nation and is watching his stock rise as the months pass.

Count Arizona as one of the schools pursuing Seisay. The athlete has been in touch with Wildcats' secondary coach Tony Gibson and the two have been able to build a strong bond.

"We're pretty close," Seisay said. "When he came to my school we talked for a while. I have a close relationship with him online and in person. He has a close relationship with my coach as well."

Aside from UA, Seisay has several other strong programs vying for his services as well.

"USC, Oregon, Washington and Boise State are the schools I have been hearing from lately," Seisay said.

The American Canyon product is receiving interest from several different regions of the country, but he would prefer to stay close to home if possible.

"It will be close to home likely - somewhere on the west coast" Seisay said. "I would like to stay in-state. If not in-state, then on the west coast somewhere, very close to California."

A busy summer for Seisay kicked off this weekend, as he took part in a camp that should earn him even more recognition.

"On Sunday I went to the Nike Training Camp," Seisay said. "And then this summer I will go to the Boise State Camp, maybe the Washington camp and the USC camp; maybe the Oregon camp. And I am going to a team camp in Antioch with my teammates."

There is even a strong chance that Seisay's busy schedule includes a trip to Tucson.

"I'll probably take one of my official visits there," Seisay said.

If the Wildcats can get him on campus, it will certainly increase their odds of landing Seisay. Right now, he has UA towards the top of his list.

"Not in any order – USC, Oregon, Boise State and Arizona," Seisay said.

Seisay will have an opportunity to take in several campuses over the summer. Those visits could prove crucial as he is looking for a campus that makes him feel comfortable.

"I just want nice surroundings," Seisay said. "I am sure every school has good academics, so as long as there are nice surroundings, good teammates, a good coaching staff and a nice campus. I just want to feel at home."

Many prospects like to wait until close to Signing Day to make a decision, but don't expect that from Seisay. He could make a decision in the coming months.

"It will most likely be some time during summer," Seisay said.
