Speights weighing options

Trevor Speights was one an Arizona commit, but is now looking around. Read on to see where his recruitment stands and more.

McAllen (Texas) Memorial running back Trevor Speights was one of the first pledges to the 2016 UA football recruiting class, but has since opened up his recruitment to look at other options.

“I committed too early,” Speights said. "I think when a school the caliber of Arizona offered me I was just so excited that I took it without really seeing what else was out there.

“I have nothing but good things to say about Arizona though. They are great and I will always listen to them."

Although Arizona and Speight still maintain consistent dialogue, the running back admits that three schools have emerged.

“The schools that stick out to me are Tennessee, Stanford and Texas A&M," he said. "Those are the schools that are in the lead. I’m trying to find a place that fulfills my need for academics and athletics.

"If you look at all those places they have young coaches who have had some immediate success at their programs and have put guys into the NFL.

"Plus all those places aren’t exactly slouches, academically. Everyone knows about Stanford’s history, but the other two places have some pretty prestigious schools as well.”

Speights has the skills that should fit into any system.

“I’m a dynamic player," he said. "I like offenses that get guys out and do a lot of different things and the type of offenses that get the running back the kind of carries that allows the player to get into a rhythm.

"When I go on the visits I’m going to look at that and how each teams sees me fitting it.”
