Hawkins enjoys visit

Chandler Hawkins recently took an unofficial visit to Arizona. Read on to see how it went, who his favorite is, and more.

Bellfower (Calif.) St. John Bosco 2014 corner back Chandler Hawkins is part of one of the most talented secondary units in California, and he just finished checking out some Pac-12 schools with his talented teammate, Naijiel Hale.

"We just got done visiting Arizona and Arizona State and it was good," Hawkins said. "Both visits went well and we were able to learn a lot more about the schools.

"I got to talk with Coach Lockwood and Coach Dews, which was good. Then I got to talk with Coach Rodriguez about my game and how he sees me developing."

Hawkins has yet to receive an offer from Arizona, but the coaching staff let him know what he needs to do.

"The coaches said they liked my competitiveness and quickness, but they want me to come out for a camp or something so they can see me in person," Hawkins said.

"It's kind of tough to do a full evaluation without seeing some players. Either way, they said they're going to watch me closely."

Hawkins is hoping to garner the attention of more schools this summer.

"Right now, I would say San Jose State is my leader," Hawkins said. "They've been on me from the beginning and still are recruiting me well.

"That being said, I'm going to take my time and see what else is out there and see if there are any other schools that become interested."

As of now, Hawkins has an idea of how he wants to handle the process.

"I'm going to Northwestern on Sunday then I'm going to try and process everything," he said. "I would like to stay on the west coast somewhere, but if a school away from home is the best fit for me I would probably go there."

In addition, Hawkins knows what he wants in his future school.

"My main thing is I want to find a place that wants me to be there and a place where I can go and develop as a player and get a good education while I'm there," he said.
