Lineman looking forward to visit

Offensive lineman Layth Friekh is planning to visit Arizona on July 27. Read on for his thoughts on the Wildcats, his recruitment, and more.

The UA coaching staff has been recruiting Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial tackle Layth Friekh for more than a year and the offensive lineman will be in town for one of the most important recruiting days of the year.

"I'm going out to Arizona on July 27th," Friekh said. "The coaches have been talking a lot about how the new facilities will be unveiled then, and I know they are trying to get as many recruits down there as possible for that. I'm excited to see everything that is going on."

The Arizona staff has done a solid job cultivating a relationship with Friekh.

"I like the UA coaches because they are straight with you," Friekh said. "They've been recruiting me for a long time and their message hasn't really changed."

The lineman likes the fact that the coaching staff does not make promises to recruits.

"They want to get as many talented guys in as possible, but nothing is promised to anyone," Friekh said. "At the same time, early playing time is available and they have given examples of this."

In addition to Arizona, Friekh also has his eyes on visiting at least one other Pac-12 school.

"The only other visit I have scheduled is to Oregon in September," Friekh said. "Oregon's reputation speaks for itself and I'm looking forward to checking out how things are done, especially with the new coaching staff."

Friekh plans on figuring out his college destination after taking his visits.

"I should have a really good idea by then what I want to do," Friekh said. "I don't want to drag my recruitment out any longer than I have to and I think after the visits I will really be able to make an educated decision. I'm ready."
