Humphreys looking around

Ben Humphreys is one of the better wide receivers in the west. Read on to see what he says about Arizona, his recruitment, and more.

Playing linebacker at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei is a big deal and 2015 prospect Ben Humphreys is looking to add to that legacy.

There is an excellent chance he will succeed.

Possessing a frame that can fill out considerably combined with a thirst for success, Humphreys' promise stands out to college scouts.

"I would say my recruiting is picking up and teams seem to like how I'm improving," Humphreys said. "The coaches I've had contact with have told me some good things. They like the fact that I'm a big guy and that I play hard when I'm out on the field.

"My coach is handling a lot of my recruiting at this point, but I know we're going to figure this stuff out soon."

Like a number of schools, Arizona is looking to get Humphreys on campus.

"They've reached out and I'm open," he said. "I want to check out a number of junior days, so we'll see where everything leads. I would imagine I will know more here shortly."

Playing at such a renowned high school is nonetheless preparing Humphreys for his transition to the next level.

"But at the end of the day we're all looking at that next level. Just watching that stuff makes me so eager to want to play and it pushes me through trainings. I'm never satisfied, but I can see some of my goals getting closer."
