Roh getting closer

Arizona has offered Jake Roh and is going well with him. Read on for Roh's thoughts on Arizona, a possible decision, and more.

Jake Roh's relationship with the Arizona coaching staff is strong and should surprise no one. His older brother, Craig, committed to Rich Rodriguez and his staff while they were at Michigan and the Roh family has been familiar with them ever since.

Jake, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver from Scottsdale Chaparral, stays in consistent contact with UA.

"I talk to them regularly," Roh said. "We have had consistent contact and talk about a lot of things."

While Arizona is in good standing with Roh, his stock is steadily rising. He continues to communicate with several schools consistently and has several more attempting to get involved with his recruitment.

"I started hearing from a lot of other schools during spring ball," Roh said. "Utah, Washington, Michigan State and San Diego State have contacted me, but all the schools I have offers from, I talk to them pretty regularly."

Summer can be a busy period for a high school football player entering his senior year. This is the case for Roh, who is coming off one camp and has much more on his plate in the coming months.

"I went to the UCLA camp, which was last weekend and went well" Roh said. "I'm probably going to try and go out to a couple of camps, but I am not sure where yet. Possibly Michigan State or Washington. I am thinking about taking visits to Oregon State and possibly Duke."

The Wildcats have already had Roh on campus once, but will they be able to get him on an official visit once the season begins?

"Yeah definitely," Roh said. "I am not sure when, but I will visit again."

With more football programs entering the picture, Roh is hesitant to put any schools ahead of the rest.

"I don't have any favorites right now," Roh said.

The product from Scottsdale has plenty of options to choose from and the list appears to be growing. While he is an Arizona native and grew up in Pac-12 country, Roh is still leaving his door open for virtually anyone.

"I am open to everywhere," Roh said. "Wherever I feel I fit best."

As far as setting a timetable for a decision, Roh would like to make one relatively soon, but isn't opposed to taking his time if needed.

"It will probably be before the season or in the middle of the season," Roh said. "If it goes farther then it goes farther."
