Elite Camp Interviews, Part One

Cat Tracks was able to catch up with many of Saturday's finest and see where they are with their recruitment. More importantly, to see where they are with their interests in Arizona. In Part One we catch up with O-lineman <b>Tyler Breckenridge</b> and <b>Jordan Lowe</b>, TE <b>Cody Jones</b>, CB <b>Derek Tough</b>, and RB <b>Lydell Sargeant</b>.

Tyler Breckenridge was one of the top handful of offensive lineman in attendance. He showed great feet, solid mechanics, and nice quickness.

The 6-1, 244 pounder from Fallbrook High in Fallbrook, California already has two offers. "Fresno State and San Diego State have sent me written offers," said Breckenridge. "My top five are Arizona, Arizona State, Kansas State, Fresno State, and Northern Arizona. Arizona is my top school after visiting here."

The center prospect went on to say that he was more impressed with the Academics at UA than anything else.

Jordan Lowe was another one of the top O-lineman. He has good feet for a big man and seemed to have a mean streak to him. The Peoria product was selected first team all-region as a junior. Lowe was slowed at the camp by a strained hamstring and could not participate in some of the testings. He plays right tackle at Centennial High blocking for Terry Longbons, but most likely projects as a guard at the next level. Arizona is also his top school.

"Arizona is my favorite and I also like Arizona State, Notre Dame, Miami, and Ohio State," said Lowe.

The 6-3 1/2, 295 pounder is being recruited to UA by Coach Kish and was placed at every position along the O-line on the day so the staff could get a good look at him.

Cody Jones from Sabino High in Tucson was without a doubt the top tight end at the camp. Cody has incredible hands and even drew praise from head coach Mike Stoops after one circus-catch he made.

He is now up to three offers. "Cal offered me last week," said Jones, who already has offers from Purdue and Duke. "Purdue is my top school and I also like Cal, Colorado, Duke, and Arizona."

There were not many defensive backs at the camp, but Derek Tough was one of them and he showed nice speed and shifting ability. He was there with his quarterback at Granite Bay, Patrick Devenny. He updates his recruitment.

"I like Arizona, San Diego, Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo, Dartmouth, and Yale," said Tough. "I do not really have a favorite."

He says of the schools he likes that San Diego is the closest to offering him.

Lydell Sargeant was arguably the top running back in attendance. This is the second time TheInsiders has seen him in person and we came away even more impressed this time. He was one of the best players at TheInsiders/MSL Combine in Berkeley last month and he equalled that feat over the weekend by being one of the top players at the UA camp.

Lydell appeared to be the shiftiest, quickest, and fastest of all the running backs and also looked good when he doubled as a corner. What position does he want to play? "It does not matter to me," said Sargeant. "Whatever position the school I go to wants me to play at is fine with me. I just want to play at whatever gets me on the field first."

Lydell has a written offer from BYU and a verbal one from Fresno State. The 5-10, 175 pound athlete will be attending upcoming one-day camps at Stanford, Cal, and San Diego State.

"My top schools are BYU, Arizona, Cal, Stanford, and Boise State."

He is a very good student with a 3.5 core GPA and a 1090 on his SAT.

Cat Tracks has many more interviews from the camp to follow.
