Junior running back looking at Arizona

Junior running back Ish Witter will have plenty of recruiting attention. Read on to see if Arizona is one of the schools recruiting him, where it stands, and more.

Although his team struggled this past season, Tampa Alonso running back Ish Witter, despite not being at full strength, was still able to grab the attention of college recruiters.

"I've had a terrible time with my ankle this past year," the 5-foot-8, 180-pound back said. "I missed a lot of time this past year. My sophomore season I missed quite a few games with a really bad ankle sprain, and I was injury free for the most part this year and I was able to put up some big numbers, but at the end of the season I sprained my ankle again and missed the last game of the season."

Witter doesn't want to worry about his ankle when he steps onto the field next season.

"My main goal this summer is to get stronger and make sure I go into the season at full strength," Witter said. "I'm going to work hard on my ankle flexibility and strength.

"It's very frustrating when these sprains happen and I don't want this to happen again."

Witter is receiving plenty of recruiting attention, but still doesn't have an offer from a Division-I school.

"Right now I'm hearing from Boston College, Missouri, Mississippi State and Kentucky along with a few other schools," Witter said.

"Arizona has been writing me as well and they are supposed to be coming down to meet with my coach, so I'm interested to see how that goes."

Witter would like to decide early, but needs the offers to do so. Until then, he will be working hard to improve.

"I don't have any offers right now," he said. "Hopefully, they will come and I'll be able to decide from some good schools. I'd like to decide before the season starts, if possible.

"In the meantime, I'm going to work really hard and try to make myself a better player and continue to get my ankle stronger."
