Haden looking to future

Jonathan Haden recently visited Arizona. Read on for his thoughts on the new facilities, his future role, and more.

Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy running back Jonathan Haden recently visited his future school and found the trip enlightening.

"It was good to get on campus and finally check the place out," Haden said. "The coaches like that I can line up in a variety of places or carry the load in the backfield.

"That was what really attracted me to the school. You watch their offense and you listen to what they have to say about it and you realize that this is one of the best places in the country to go if you're an offensive player."

The coaching staff was able to sit down with Haden and discuss how it envisions using him.

"They talked to me about the different ways they like to use their running backs," Haden said. "When you see the numbers that their running backs put up, it's impressive."

The Arizona commit's connection with the coaching staff was the deciding factor that led him to Tucson.

"I obviously have complete faith in the coaches because I committed without seeing the campus, but the visit was great," Haden said. "It's a very scenic place and it just seems like a place where everyone is on the same page and I'm looking for a place like that."

Haden will be able to transfer to UA in December and he feels the extra time on campus will help him make an early impact.

"The coaches keep saying the best players will play and the sooner we get on campus, the more advanced we'll become," Haden said. "I'm hoping the head start will help me play early."
