Chaparral linebacker impressed on visit

Robbie Kleifield recently took an unofficial visit to Arizona. Read on for his thoughts on the visit and more.

The 2015 Arizona high school football class has plenty of talent and the Wildcat coaches are looking to intrigue as many of the top prospects as possible.

One of those targets is Scottsdale Chaparral linebacker Robbie Kleifield.

"Junior Day in Tucson was a ton of fun," Kleifield said. "The school was amazing. The new weight room was amazing. The coaches built it up a ton and it certainly lived up to the expectations.

"Then you look at the rest of the football facilities where the players hang out and it was just a relaxed, cool place. Everyone liked it."

Kleifield was also impressed by his talk with the UA football coaches.

"Getting to see Coach Rodriguez and Coach Ragle was fun," he said. "They asked me how I was doing and they talked a little bit about the direction of the program. It wasn't anything too deep, but it was just fun to be around the guys.

"They've done pretty well with kids from my high school, so that is always good."

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound backer has garnered interest from some renowned schools, thus his recruitment doesn't figure to end any time soon.

"I'm just getting started in my recruitment," Kleifield said. "Schools like Arizona State, Cal and Oklahoma are interested and I want to find out more about them.

"I've worked hard for a long time to be able to play at the college level and I'm going to take it in.

"I really only get to go through this process once, so I'm going to take my time and look at everything imaginable and then go with what my gut tells me. I have no clue when that will be though."
