Nataro sticking with commitment

Nick Nataro has been committed to Arizona for a while now, but school have kept calling. Read on to see where he stands with Arizona, his future plans, and more.

Estero (Fla.) tight end Nick Nataro was the second player to commit to the 2014 Arizona recruiting class and while he checked out Auburn recently, he still plans on attending UA.

"I love Arizona," Nataro said. "The coaches have been calling and just letting me know how much they like my game.

"They like the flexibility I give their offense because I'm a big guy, but at the same time I can split out wide or block."

Although Nataro has been committed for quite some time, he still hasn't visited the Arizona campus. However, that figures to change in the coming months.

"They obviously want me to go out there and check the place out," Nataro said. "They've invited me out for the grand opening of the new stadium and I definitely plan on making it out there for that.

"I've heard quite a bit about it and I'm interested to check it out for myself and to see the rest of the campus."

Nataro doesn't have any other visits set up, but he does plan on going to some local team camps.

"I know we are going to the Miami team camp this summer," Nataro said. "It will be a great opportunity to compete against some good players without having to travel far."

Other schools continue to pursue Nataro, but he says those efforts are futile.

"I'm a Wildcat," Nataro said. "The school is a great fit for me and they were the first big school on me."

One of the major reasons why Nataro is solid with Arizona is the relationship he has developed with the coaching staff.

"The coaches have done a great job communicating with me, which is one of the reasons I committed, and while it's still a ways off, I'm already thinking about playing in the Pac-12," he said.
