Deboskie names top three

Arizona offered Kaelin Deboskie a few weeks ago. He has had time to digest the offer and think things over. Read on for information on his recent visits to campus, where he will visit next, and more.

When Tucson Salpointe Catholic wide receiver Kaelin Deboskie was offered a scholarship by the Arizona Wildcats a few weeks ago, he referred to it as a dream come true. He has high interest in the his hometown school, but wanted to check all of his options before making a decision.

He is about to get a few opportunities with two summer camps and an unofficial visit.

"My recruitment has been going great," Deboskie said. "It has been dying down a little bit, but hopefully it will pick back up after some of the camps I'm going to.

"I'm trying to make it to the USC camp and the Oklahoma State camp. I'm also taking a unofficial visit to West Virginia sometime within the next month."

Even with his strong reaction from the Arizona offer, Deboskie kept his recruitment open, though he already has a top three that includes the Wildcats.

"I really couldn't say that Arizona is a favorite right now, but it is definitely in my top three," he said. "Those are Arizona, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia."

The receiver has planned to visit all three schools in the future, but has already made a few visits to Arizona, which is just blocks away from his high school.

"It was amazing to see the new facilities," Deboskie said. "The whole place is just crazy. I love all the coaches and the atmosphere. Everything is great.

"What stood out about the new facility is how everything is open and close. If you need to go to the trainer, it's right next to the locker room. Everything is really close and it's all there for you. You shouldn't have to worry about anything. It's just perfect."

Deboskie already plans on being back on the Wildcats' campus in a month's time for the grand opening of the new end zone.

"I will be attending the grand opening of the new facilities for sure," he said. "They were supposed to be done three weeks after I saw it, so it should be getting finished soon. It's just crazy to think about how much more they wanted to do and how good it already was."

Since receiving the scholarship offer, the high school senior has had plenty of time to talk to the coaches more and build relationships with them. He has also been helped out by his best friend and Arizona commit, Cameron Denson.

"I would say things with Arizona are definitely getting better since the offer," he said. "I have been with Cameron and we have been going to some of the camps and always hanging around the campus. It's just like a family environment."

Growing up, before Deboskie moved to Texas for a few years, the two were inseparable. Now, the chance to play with Denson has intrigued the wide receiver more than anything else.

"It's really a dream come true to have the opportunity to play with Cam," he said. "I never thought I would get the chance to play with him in high school and now, we could possibly do it for college.

"We are back and reunited now. We both play really great together and we just won the 7-on-7 tournament that no one thought we would win. It's just been a great time playing with him."

Deboskie will still take his time in the recruiting process, but not too long. He would like to decide on a school before the start of the football season, but is willing to wait a few weeks longer if he still isn't sure.

"I don't think I will wait too long," Deboskie said. "I want to be able to focus on the football season and my team.

"If I don't decide before the season starts, it will definitely be just a few games in so that I can work towards winning a State Championship instead of worrying about recruiting."
