Recruiting Reset: Secondary

Arizona is recruiting numerous players to add to its secondary. Read on to see who those players are and where the Wildcats stand with each.

Jabari Butler: Butler does not have an offer from Arizona, but the coaching staff thinks highly enough of him for us to put him on this list. It would not be a surprise to see Butler get an offer if his first few games are impressive. Should that happen, we think Arizona would be in good shape to get a commitment, which is probably one of the reasons why there is currently no rush.

Dechaun Holiday: Arizona is in it for Holiday more than people think, but it will likely be difficult to get him out of Southern California.

“As for when I'll decide, I'm still battling that right now,” Holiday said. “A part of me wants to commit early but I want to wait until I'm 100% on that and right now, I'm only 50-50. If I'm not ready by the end of the summer, I'll take my official visits and wait until the fall to commit anywhere."

Ideally, Arizona would like to see Holiday take his time and work to get him on campus before he makes a decision. If that happens, it would at least give the Wildcats a better chance.

Dane Cruikshank: Cuikshank is in this position because of grades, as he has plenty of talent and heard from schools like Arizona coming out of high school.

"Quite a few colleges recruited me out of high school," said Cruikshank. "I was highly recruited out of high school and why I think they followed me to my JC. I was recruited by San Jose State, Fresno State, Arizona State, Arizona, Utah State, Utah, UCLA and schools like that.”

Arizona is in pretty good shape for Cruikshank, but there are numerous schools that are aggressively recruiting him. This is another player that the coaching staff wants to get on campus and our guess is that it will be able to do so.

Stanley Norman: There is no date set just yet, but Norman is planning on taking an official to Arizona.

"I'm going to Oklahoma (Nov. 8) for the Baylor game," Norman said. "It's not locked in yet but we've talked about it and that's the weekend I want to go. I'm also going to visit California, Arizona and Washington. Those four are for sure getting visits and I'm keeping that last one open right now.”

We probably sound like a broken record, but as long as Arizona can get a kid on campus, it is going to have a shot.
