Arizona has had numerous players back off their commitment to Arizona in the past few weeks, but is still looking to end its class with players that it feels will be able to contribute. Here is a look at the top three offensive players that remain on Arizona’s target list. Keep in mind it is possible Arizona chooses to get involved with others in the next month or so.
There may not be a player higher on Arizona’s board than Ealy. The plan as of now is for the four-star lineman to announce his decision the first week of January and sources say this is currently a battle with Arizona and Oklahoma. LSU supposedly does not have room, but it may choose to make room for a player of Ealy’s caliber.
Even if that is the case, Ealy has developed such a strong relationship with the Arizona coaching staff that the Wildcats have a legitimate chance in this one. If we had to make a prediction, we think Arizona leads here, but even a week is a long time in football recruiting.
Don’t let Harris’ ranking fool you. He has gotten offers from Washington State and Arizona in the past month and we would not be surprised if more came his way. It looked as if Harris was going to go to Toledo, but the Pac-12 offers may have eliminated the Rockets completely considering that time for visits is running out once the dead period is over.
Harris will visit the Cougars on January 13 and Arizona on January 20 before making a decision. The Wildcats are in pretty good shape right now and are certainly under heavy consideration.
Moore is an interesting player because he really does not talk about recruiting much. He has already visited Arizona and indications are that the visit went well. UCLA has offered and will likely be right in the thick of things as well. In addition, Boise State is still in the picture as he technically has not decommitted.
Our guess is that he will be difficult for Arizona to pull and we haven’t heard anything that would make us confident, but again, he has been very quiet regarding his recruitment.
