Safety likely to visit

Arizona recently offered Long Beach (Calif.) City College safety London Iakopo. Read on to see where the Wildcats now stand and more.

Long Beach (Calif.) City College safety London Iakopo recently received an offer from the University of Arizona and to say he is excited is an understatement.

“Arizona is my only offer and I couldn’t be more excited about it,” Iakopo said. “Not only have they offered me, but they have prioritized me.

"They talked about how impressed they were by my tape and the fact that it looked like I could do a bunch of different things.”

It seems a visit to Arizona will probably happen soon.

“I already have a visit set up," Iakopo said. "I think it’s the second week of the season. I haven’t gotten a ton of other attention right now.

"Who knows, maybe that will change a little bit once teams see more, but if not, it’s all good. I’m going to make it happen."

The process is somewhat new to Iakopo.

“I don’t really know what to expect when I go on the trip," he said. "All this is a little new to me. I just want to look at my comfort level and see how easily I can imagine myself playing there.”

Should Arizona get the commitment, it would get a player that makes his team better.

“The big thing I try to do for my team is do whatever the coach asks and to make sure I study as much as possible so that I can be in that position," Iakopo said.

"Being that I am a few years older it definitely helps from a physicality and maturity aspect, but it’s more than that. Since I’ve gotten to junior college my ability to comprehend what I’m doing has just taken off.”
