Defensive end taking a look

Arizona recently offered defensive end Connor Humphreys. Read on for his thoughts on the offer, his overall recruitment, and more.

Getting bigger along the defensive line is one of the top priorities for Rich Rodriguez and it is a point he is stressing to recruits like Portland Central Catholic defensive end Connor Humphreys.

"Arizona just offered me," Humphreys said. "Coach Caponi came here and just let me know they think a lot of my game and my size. He said that I'm bigger than a lot of the defensive lineman they have right now, which was interesting."

Arizona is telling Humphreys he will have a chance to play right away and the pitch is something that has impressed him.

"I really liked hearing that I am bigger because it gives me the impression that I would have a pretty good chance of playing early," he said. "Now that they've offered me, I'm going to look a lot closer at them."

Arizona has made a nice early impression on Humphreys, but the Wildcats still has some catching up to do.

"I would say the schools that stick out the most right now are UCLA, Wisconsin, Southern California and Tennessee," Humphreys said. "There are other schools I like as well, but those four are the ones that come to mind.

"They have all done a great job recruiting me and when you look at them they are all schools that have pretty good reputations."

Humphreys is ready to take the next step in his recruitment and plans to start narrowing his list in the coming months.

"In the next month I'm going to take some visits," Humphrey said. "I would like to get out and check as many places as possible and then come up with some schools that I want to go on official visits to. Ideally, I will decide in September or October."
