“Every time I go back to Arizona it gets better and better,” Colacion said. “I can’t tell you how happy I am with my decision. Arizona is the perfect school for me.
"I don’t even know where to start. The defense is really attractive for me. I can see myself being in that back backer position and being allowed to fly around and make plays. The defense they run is really good for guys like me.”
Colacion sensed the excitement of the other recruits when he visited a few weeks ago.“I think everyone had a really good time," he said. "It was funny because when I looked around it seemed like there was an entire team of guys from the LA area.
"These are guys from big time high schools. Obviously, some were committed and some weren’t, but everyone definitely had a good time.”
Now that he is committed, Colacion is doing his best to entice other recruits to join him on campus.
“I did everything I could to talk up the school," he said. "It’s not that difficult though because Arizona has everything anyone would be looking for.
"The weather is awesome, campus is great and the area just loves football and hoops. Plus, you factor in the fact that the program is winning more games each season and it’s something that is easy to sell.”
