Recruiting Reset: Quarterbacks

Arizona has offered a handful of quarterbacks and is recruiting others. Read on to see where it stands with its targets and more.

Arizona is taking its time with quarterbacks this recruiting cycle. The guys on the roster allow the coaches to do so and the ones that have been offered are of high priority. Sources say that there really is not a quarterback on the verge of an offer, but we would expect that to change in the upcoming months, especially when Arizona has its camps. We are going to highlight some guys that could attend a camp or two and eventually get an offer, but keep in mind there is still some work to be done there.

Travis Waller: Waller was one of Arizona's first quarterback offers and it made sense because of how well he fit in the offense. Fast forward to now and we would be surprised if he wound up at Arizona. Walker has a ton of offers now and schools like Alabama are involved. He is completely open to leaving the west and the general feeling is that if he stays in the Pac-12, Oregon and Cal probably have somewhat of an advantage. Arizona will not stop recruiting him completely, but there is a very small chance he winds up in Tucson.

Sheriron Jones: People automatically assume that since Jones is getting offers from big schools, Arizona does not have much of a chance. However, that is not accurate. We're not saying he will wind up at Arizona, because we really don't know at this point. What we do know is that the Wildcats are going to have a chance in this one and there is a good chance it will eventually get him on campus for a visit. Jones is a prototypical Rich Rodriguez quarterback and is easily the top priority at the position right now the coaching staff.

Nate Ketteringham: Arizona has told Ketteringham it wants to see him throw this season, so he is not going to get an offer before then, if he even gets one at all. If it does decide to offer, the Wildcats would have a very good chance of landing him. Ketteringham does not really fit with the mobile type of quarterbacks Rodriguez likes, but he is still a guy to at least keep in mind.

Tyrone Williams: Williams is a dual-threat quarterback and would likely jump at an offer. He has made no secret of the fact that he likes Arizona's recruiting pitch and is hoping for an offer. There is a good chance that Williams camps at Arizona and that will obviously go a long way in determining what kind of recruitment he has.

M.C. Poe: Poe is another signal caller that needs to get in front of the coaching staff. He has said that he will visit Arizona this summer and we should know more once that happens.

To be blunt, we would be surprised if Poe, Williams, or Ketteringham gets an offer. However, it makes sense to at least mention them should they throw well in front of the coaching staff or put together solid senior seasons.
