Arizona Football Notebook

There was plenty that happened surrounding Arizona football this past weekend. Read on to see who the next commit might be, the newest offers, and more.

Sam Morrison: Arizona hosted the son of former Wildcat Darryl Morrison and all indications are that it went very well. Morrison loved a previous visit to Duke and the Blue Devils were thought to have been the leader, but that was before the Arizona visit. There is a possibility that Morrison will decide at some point this week, but we could see him delaying it one more before ending his recruitment. Anything can happen, but Arizona has positioned itself as the school to beat in this one.

Demetrius Flannigan: The Tucson safety got an offer after performing well at Arizona's 7-on-7 camp. He was likely to get one during the season, but was impressive enough to cause the coaches to go ahead and offer him now. The general belief is that he is the best player in Tucson for his class and Arizona has a good chance of keeping him home. He would come in as a bigger safety with the ability to move around a bit.

Justin Holt: Another legacy player, the son of Julius Holt was offered by Arizona this past weekend as well. It's early in the recruitment, but the Wildcats are certainly going to be in this one until the end and have already had Justin and his father on campus numerous times. Holt finished the season with 24 individual tackles and 46 total, but gained attention when he dominated the line of scrimmage in the state championship against Scottsdale Chaparral.

Toure Boyd: It's obvious that Arizona feels it needs help in the secondary, because that is where a good amount of the offers are coming from. It is no surprise that Boyd was offered on his visit, as he is another player that has the ability to play numerous positions on defense. Boyd's recruitment is currently between Arizona and Utah and the guess here is that the Wildcats lead. He wants to decide a few weeks after his season starts, so both schools will have the opportunity to recruit him and others may get involved as well. Boyd's biggest attribute is his speed and it is no secret that the coaching staff is continually looking to upgrade.

Quarterbacks: Sheriron Jones committed to Florida in an expected move and Arizona's quarterback recruiting is a bit up in the air right now. It will likely try to get in on Blake Barnett, but it would be a surprise he did not wind up at Oregon. Travis Waller is basically no longer an option as well, so there are not many guys out there with public offers. We do know of some signal callers that Arizona has a close eye on and there are options out there, but they simply can't be public knowledge at this time.

Kyahva Tezino: There may not have been a visitor as big as Tezino this weekend. Any time Arizona can get a four-star prospect on campus it should be treated as a big deal and this one just happens to favor Arizona. He came with his Salesian teammates for the 7-on-7 tournament and there is little doubt that the coaching staff paid attention to him. Tezino is in no rush to make a decision, but Arizona has to feel comfortable with its position.
