Recruiting Reset: Offensive tackle

Arizona has offered numerous offensive tackles. Read on to see who it has offered and where the Wildcats stand with each.

Andrew Mike: Mike has gone off the grid a bit when it comes to interviews, but sources close to the recruitment tell us that Arizona is doing well here. The USC offer was impressive to Mike, but Stanford is considered a school that can change his recruitment. Arizona State remains aggressive as well and there is a chance it can convince Mike to come. However, Arizona has to like its current shape in this recruitment. It is unknown when Mike will decide, but the coaching staff will continue to basically have an open invitation for him to visit campus.

Layth Friekh: Arizona has been on Friekh for quite a while now and it seems to be currently paying off. Arizona is in good shape, but Friekh has decided he wants to wait a little longer before coming to a decision. At this point, he wants to take an official visit to Nebraska and Oregon is in decent shape for one as well. Arizona is not going to pressure Friekh to decide, but it will likely try to get him on campus next month to make things a bit more interesting.

Nick Gates: The Bishop Gorman lineman has plenty of offers to choose from and Arizona is trying to get him on campus next month. It does help the Wildcats that Anu Solomon was Gates' teammate, but an Alabama offer is not going to make anything easy. In addition, Gates has other legitimate offers to choose from and his recruitment could have another burst once the season starts. He is in absolutely no rush to make a decision, but Arizona is one of the schools he is looking at closely and getting him on campus would be a big step.

Quinn Bailey: Bailey may say that he is looking at all of his options, but we would be surprised if he did not stay in state. We would probably give the nod to Arizona State right now, but Bailey has backed off from making a decision and says that he wants to see how both teams do this season. Arizona was the first school to offer him and will likely try to use that to its advantage, but Bailey has not been shy about wanting to stay close to home, which would be ASU. It is not an insurmountable lead by any means and could be miniscule, but Arizona has a fight on its hands.

Bailey Granier: There aren't many players that have seen their stock take off like Granier. He now holds an Alabama and Florida State offer, among others. Arizona's offer is pretty recent as well, but Bama is likely the school to beat here. Granier would love an offer from LSU and is probably willing to wait a bit in order to get it. Granier is going to visit other schools this summer, but Arizona is not currently on the list. He is currently open in his recruitment, so the coaching staff will continue to try to get in there, but it won't come easy.

Kolton Miller: Arizona was the first school to offer Miller and then numerous others came along, including Arizona State. Miller does not talk a lot about his recruitment, but the word is that Arizona is doing just fine. We would be surprised if Miller did not get more offers and it has been recruiting him the longest, which is a good sign. We don't feel comfortable predicting this one because we have not talked to Miller in a while, but the Wildcats are right in the thick of things.

David Hedelin: Hedelin is approaching the process slowly and says that he may not take any visits until it is time for his officials. He has plenty of schools to choose from, including Oregon, USC, Arkansas, and many others. Location is not a factor for Hedelin and with the offer list that he has, it should be pretty difficult to land him. Arizona is still going to give it a good shot and it will come down to whether or not it can get him on campus.

Luke Hayes: Hayes is another lineman that is not close to narrowing things down or making a decision. He wants to learn more about Arizona and figuring everything comes out fine, the Wildcats are going to have a shot. It will work to get him on campus and probably has a solid shot at doing so, but there is plenty of time left here.
