After decommitting from Arizona in March, 2017 quarterback Braxton Burmeister has decided that Arizona is still the place for him.
Burmeister originally opened up his recruitment to take a look at other options and Washington and Indiana became the biggest ones.
There was some speculation that Burmeister could add an offer from Oregon or UCLA because of the recent decommitments of Tate Martell and Ryan Kelley, but the four-star quarterback seemingly did not want to wait to see how that played out.
Quarterback coach and co-offensive coordinator Rod Smith deserves a ton of credit for maintaining a strong relationship with Burmeister even after he opened up his recruitment.
Arizona hosted numerous high profile visitors on Saturday and Burmeister was included with the coaching staff under the belief that a commitment was a strong possibility.
The Wildcats are now done with quarterbacks in the class, as they have a commitment from Rhett Rodriguez as well.
What kind of quarterback is Arizona getting in Burmeister?
“Burmeister is a dual-threat QB who can stress a team with his arm and his legs.,” Greg Biggins writes. “When he breaks containment, he's very explosive and runs like a running back in the open field. He has a strong arm and can get the ball down the field and make all the throws.
“Burmeister has a thick frame and is tough to bring down in the open field. He can spin away from would be tacklers and runs the zone read very affectively. He looks very comfortable throwing outside the pocket and has improved as a pocket passer as well.”
