"I love the staff at Arizona," said Oatis. "Mike and Mark Stoops did tremendous things when they were at Oklahoma and Miami. It is not hard for me to see myself fitting in there. I felt comfortable when I visited and I will for sure go back for an unofficial visit. I think they are going to turn things around."
The Cats join Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA, Oregon, Oregon State, and Arizona State as the schools competing for Oatis. He claims no favorites between the schools. He has already scheduled official trips to South Bend October 8th and Columbus October 22nd. "I am also definitely going to Oregon and Arizona on trips. The last one will most likely go to Oregon State."
Does that mean that Arizona State and UCLA will not get another visit from him? "I might make another unofficial trip to Arizona State and I already went to UCLA last weekend, but could go back again."
In addition to UA, he took unofficial trips to ASU, Stanford, UCLA, Oregon, and Oregon State over the summer.
Coach Canales is recruiting the safety for the Cats.
He has already received phone calls in September from BYU, Notre Dame, UCLA, Ohio State, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, UA, and ASU. He has offers from all of these schools, plus Stanford, BYU, and Northwestern.
Do his parents have any special considerations on where he goes to school? "My parents want me to go somewhere that I can play at. They just want to see the best situation for me, really."
Oatis carries a 4.1 core GPA and scored a 960 on his SAT.
