Always a matter of time for Deboskie

Kaelin Deboskie says it was a matter of time before he committed to Arizona. Read on to see why that is, his thoughts on playing with Cameron Denson, and more.

Arizona may have taken its time offering Kaelin Deboskie, but in the end, the 5-foot-9, 165-pound Salpointe Catholic wide receiver knew that he wanted to be a Wildcat.

"They had been recruiting me harder than anyone and I have a great relationship with the coaches," Deboskie said. "I like the offense a lot, it fits me and I like the idea of staying in Arizona to play my college ball.

"After they offered me it was only a matter of time before I committed. Getting to play in front of the home crowd and play for a program that is on the rise is something that everyone would like to do."

In addition, Deboskie will get to play with good friend Cameron Denson, who was one of the biggest pulls to Arizona, as he and Deboskie grew up together and openly talked about playing college ball on the team team.

"It was a great feeling when I committed," Deboskie said. Arizona is the local school and I have friends and family here. It's a great fit for me and I'm very excited. Cameron is also going there and we're very close and have always wanted to play together in college.

"I've played with him since Pop Warner. We are really close and I consider him like a cousin. We played with each other all of our lives until I had to leave. We're just double the trouble."

As Deboskie went through the recruiting process, he looked at numerous factors. One of the biggest ones he looked at was the overall fan support.

"I love the environment at Arizona," he said. "I love the zoo. They don't call it the Zona Zoo for no reason. Whatever school I chose, I wanted to be a part of an environment where the fans love the players as much as themselves. They go crazy for the players at Arizona and I love that."

Of course, the coaching staff played a role as well, especially the man in charge.

"Coach Rodriguez is a very down to earth man and I feel like he's one of the elite coaches in college football," Deboskie said. "With Arizona, I really like Coach Rich Rod a lot and how he's changing the tradition for the better.

"They have great facilities and the offense is explosive. I'm comfortable with the coaches already since I've been there multiple times and I fit in well there."
