Recruiting Reset: Wide Receivers

Arizona has offered numerous wide receivers. Read on to see how it is doing with each and more.

Darick Holmes: Arizona's lone wide receiver commitment, Holmes seems to be solid in his decision. Washington recently offered and there will be more to come, but the Wildcats did a good job of recruiting Holmes and will continue to stay aggressive with him throughout the recruiting period.

Terrell Chatman: Arizona is doing well with Chatman and you can make an argument that the Wildcats are probably the ones to beat here. He would likely jump at an offer from LSU, but we just don't see that coming. Chatman is one of many players that Arizona is recruiting in Louisiana for this cycle and the coaching staff would like to land him.

Chatman is a big receiver with a ton of athleticism and upside. He is not getting the attention he likely deserves right now because he is a raw prospect, but we could see his recruitment really gaining steam this summer.

Cedric Peterson: Arizona would love to land Peterson and his teammate Sheriron Jones. The Wildcats are doing well with both and Peterson has nothing but positive things to say about the coaching staff and his offer from Arizona. At this point, the plan is for both of them to take a visit and then proceed from there.

It would not be a surprise to see this recruitment come down to Arizona and Nebraska, but Peterson wants to get out and visit schools this summer, so things could always change. As it stands now, Arizona isn't complaining about its position here.

Lavan Alston: Alston recently visited the Oregon schools and is hoping for an offer from the Ducks. He is also working on getting an offer from both USC and UCLA, but still has an offer from the majority of the Pac-12 and some national schools as well. Alston wants to visit Arizona and Arizona State this summer and we would know a lot more about the recruitment once that happens. The Wildcats seem to be right in this one, especially if it can make a positive impression on the visit.

We do admit that an Oregon offer or one from the local schools would likely shake the recruitment up, but until that happens, it is difficult to speculate too much on the impact and it certainly won't change Arizona's approach.

Aaron Frazier: Arizona has offered Frazier, but he is still in the process of learning more about the Wildcats. With how slow Frazier wants to take things, it is hard to know exactly where Arizona stands. What we do know is that the Wildcats are the biggest school to have offered Frazier so far and that usually means something.

Frazier also holds offers from Toledo and Ohio, but he is the type of player that is likely to see that list increase. He wants to takes visits this summer, so it will be interesting to see where his recruitment stands once that happens.

Michael Chigbu: Chigbu has offers from schools such as Auburn. Georgia, Notre Dame, UCLA, and others. Basically, it won't be easy by any means to land the Louisiana wide receiver. He admits that he would like to wind up in the SEC, but does not seem to be completely set on it. The plan is for Chigbu to take visits and go from there, so Arizona getting him on campus would obviously be big in the recruitment.
