Tabor enjoys Arizona visit

Jalen Tabor visited Arizona this past weekend and came away impressed. Read on to see why, when he will decide, and more.

One of the highest ranked visitors of the Rich Rodriguez era was on hand for the UA-Washington State game, and while the Cats didn't win, 2014 Friendship Collegiate Academy (D.C.) defensive back Jalen Tabor came away impressed.

"The visit far exceeded my expectations," Tabor said. "I had a feeling I would like it because I've heard good things about the school from Jon Haden and Matt Dudek.

"The fans were into the game and even though they didn't win you could tell it was close. If they cleaned up a little bit of stuff they could have won easily."

Needless to say, the Wildcat coaching staff went all in on explaining the benefits of the school.

"Coach Dudek got me interested and then I found out that I really liked talking with the coaching staff," Tabor said. "I think I got to talk with pretty much everyone and they let me know that this is a place where they are doing things.

"The coaches also let me know that they think my athletic ability and instincts are a good fit for what they want to do."

To even get a player of Tabor's caliber on campus is a coup in of itself, especially given the schools involved in his recruitment.

"I'm also considering Alabama and Florida," he said. "I like both those schools for a number of reasons. Neither schools are that far away and they both have awesome traditions and their coaches are both guys who really connect with you as an individual.

"Lastly, they both put a lot of guys in the NFL, and that is my goal at the end of the day."

Although Tabor still has to take a couple visits, his recruitment is winding down.

"I'm going to announce at the Under Armour Game and I don't know what school I'm going to choose," Tabor said. "The good thing is that I am deciding from some good schools and the coaching staffs all have pretty good records."
