"Arizona was in my top three and Washington was probably my leader," Anduze said. "I kind of liked Tucson, but I had never been there.
"When I went on my visit, I knew I loved this place. That is when it became my top pick and then I sat down with Coach Rodriguez and everyone. It is hard to explain, I just had that feeling."
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Anduze says that the coaching staff made the main difference in his decision.
"The biggest reason I committed is that I felt welcomed there," he said. "I knew it was the right fit off the bat. Halfway through the visit I knew I liked the coaches and they liked me."
Arizona made it a point to introduce Anduze to every coach he would be working with should he commit and the meeting made an impression.
"My dad and I sat down with Coach Rodriguez and we all bonded," Anduze said. "I really like Coach Rodriguez, Michalczik, Ragle, Dudek, all of them. I met every one and I like the whole campus, everything. Everything about Tucson I like."
In addition to the liking the coaching staff, Anduze was impressed with Arizona's pitch on how it will use him.
"They are going to use me as a tight end that can also split out and go in the back field a little bit," Anduze said. "We went over everything with Coach Ragle, but I like how they will use me in different ways."
