More from Wacholz

Earlier in the week Cat Tracks' Andrew Friedman checked in with OL prospect Bill Wacholz. As a player who has stated that the Cats are the favorite, we thought we'd talk a little more with the up and coming prospect.

When Athletic Director Jim Livengood relieved Head Coach John Mackovic of his duties as head of the Arizona football program, many Wildcat partisans immediately turned their thoughts to the impact such a mid-season change would have on recruiting. One player that Cat Tracks has followed closely throughout the early recruiting season is giant offensive tackle William Wacholz of Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego.

Cat Tracks caught up with the 6-6, 285 behemeth this week to chart his progress in the recruitment process.

Cat Tracks: Bill, how has the season been going for you since the last time we talked to you?
Bill Wacholz: We're 3-1 on the year and ranked sixth in the county. The only game we've lost was to Carlsbad, the defending CIF champions. They're ranked number one.

CT: Have you given up any sacks on the season?
BW: No.

CT: What was your reaction to the situation with Coach Mackovic?
BW: I was pretty disappointed because I liked Coach Mack, but that's the way it goes I guess.

CT: So has that changed anything or is Arizona still your leader?
BW: It's not like that. Yeah, they are still my leader. I was sold on the University of Arizona, the town and the program.

CT: Have the Wildcats offered yet?
BW: No, not yet. They've seen film but they want to see more. They want to see more run-blocking.

CT: How often do you talk to the coaches?
BW: They call every week. Coach Bernstein does and he just breaks it down for me and explains whats going on. We have a good relationship.

CT: Have you gotten any offers yet?
BW: I received an unofficial offer from Portland State.

CT: You had two unofficial visits to the UofA, did you get to meet any of the players?
BW: The only player I was able to meet was Tanner Bell.

CT: Any idea when the UofA will give you an official offer?
BW: I would guess they will offer within the next month to month and a half.

CT: Have you met Coach Hankwitz?
BW: I have met coach Hank, he's a real nice guy.
