If the majority of the prospects had as good a time as Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College cornerback Patrick Glover, this weekend should pay major dividends for future program success.
"I went in expecting to have a really good time, but the visit was mind-blowing," Glover said. "Even though it was raining, the fans were going crazy and you could tell the whole school was ready for this game."
As impressed as he was by the fan support, Glover was even more excited by the product on the field.
"I thought they would compete with Oregon, but the way they absolutely dominated a school with that reputation was just awesome," Glover said. "Honestly, I was blown away by the performance and Coach Rodriguez expects the program to be competing at that level."
The coaches have done their best to establish a strong relationship with Glover.
"Coach Lockwood and Coach Ragle were the coaches that I've talked with the most and both of them can't wait for me to get here," he said. "Being around them this past weekend was a lot of fun. They also let me know that they were keeping an eye on my play."
The coaches have to be impressed by what they've seen.
"I've played really well," Glover said. "I've made a lot of big plays and we're 9-1. I really have seen my skills take off and I think a lot of that has to do with playing against really good players and that will only improve at Arizona."
Another factor figures to help Glover's transition to major college football.
"The coaches are very happy that I'm transferring at mid-year," Glover said. "I get to take my training to another level and I'm hoping to make a quick adjustment. They brought me in to play now."
