Tuitu'u Misses Chance to be a Wildcat

<a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1205013">Richard Tuitu'u</a> now has seven written offers but his former favorite is not accepting him anymore. The Arizona Wildcats are done recruiting offensive lineman for the year. How the tables have turned when just a year ago this time UA would have killed to get a lineman with Richard's talent, and now they can't take him because they already have too many talented lineman in the fold. Tuitu'u comments on the situation.

Height: 6-4
Weight: 285
40 time: 5.4
Bench: 333
Squat: 400
Clean: 320
Vertical:'23.5
From: Gilbert, Arizona
High School: Highland

"Arizona can't take me anymore because they filled up on offensive lineman," said the Gilbert Highland star. "They were my favorite and my parents' favorite but now everything is up in the air. I am kind of upset about it but I have other places I can go."

Life goes on for Richard, and he is happy with the remaining schools he has to choose from. Tuitu'u claims written offers from Arizona State, Utah, BYU, Cal, San Diego State, Missouri, and Washington. "I am starting to narrow down my list. The main schools I am looking at are Cal, ASU, and Washington. The other two I am still thinking about, but Nebraska is looking good as one of them. Washington and Cal are showing me the most attention right now."

Tuitu'u was hearing a lot from Oregon but just recently he says the Ducks staff has decided to "go a different way".

Richard will play a lot of defensive tackle this fall in addition to his offensive duties.

He carries a 2.8 core GPA and will be re-taking the ACT test because he was not happy with his initial score.

Highland gets their season started with Tucson Salpointe September 3rd.
