Lineman planning to visit

Arizona has had numerous players on unofficial visits the past few weeks. Read on to see what Peoria Centennial offensive lineman Layth Freikh says about his visit, Arizona in general, and more.

Few in-state players are more coveted by the UA coaching staff than 2014 Peoria Centennial offensive lineman Layth Freikh.

Freikh has offers from multiple schools and that list figures to expand in the next few months.

"Right now I have offers from Arizona, Oregon State, Utah, and Washington," Freikh said. "I'm getting interest from a lot of other schools, but those are the only four offers I have right now.

"Arizona has shown quite a bit of interest and I'm definitely interested in the in-state schools. They've been in touch with me through when they are allowed and they've also sent my coach some information. I know they're looking for size in the trenches and I think I provide that."

Freikh is excited to check out the Arizona campus next month.

"I'm heading down there in two weeks for the Colorado game and I'm excited to see them in person because from what I've seen they look like a program that is really improving," Freikh said.

"Other than the Arizona visit, I don't have anything scheduled, but that will probably change once the season is over and I have some free time."

In the meantime Freikh plays for one of the best teams in the state and wants to finish his junior season out strong.

"Right now we're 9-1 and playing really well," Freikh said. "It will be a little disappointing if we don't win state considering how we've played and how hard we've worked.

"Either way, after the season I will sit down and try to figure everything out from a recruiting standpoint."

Freikh plans on taking the recruiting process slowly and seeing what every school has to offer.

"I would like to make a decision before my senior season," Freikh said. "I don't want to rush it though; if I don't find a school that I really feel comfortable with, I'll hold off on making a decision until maybe after my senior season."
