"Arizona is a beautiful place that has a new coach and a new system," said Theus Jr. "I know what it is like to be at a place with a new system because we have a second-year head coach right now that brought in a whole new way of doing things. So I am used to it and could adjust well if I went there."
Theus Jr. had 34 catches for 460 yards and four touchdowns last year. This season, he has 23 catches for 287 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, he has three tackles and a forced fumble. Most schools like him at receiver, except Minnesota, who is giving him the option to be a corner or receiver.
He claims written offers from Wisconsin, Arizona, Nebraska, Tulsa, Duke, Houston, and Colorado. "Wisconsin is recruiting me the hardest of the schools that have offered. I am visiting there on the weekend of October 22nd. Of the schools that haven't offered, I am receiving a lot of attention from Utah and TCU."
Kempner is 6-1 on the season and takes on Elkins, this Friday.
Theus Jr. carries a 3.2 core GPA and scored a 780 on his SAT. He would like to major in Business or Sports Medicine.
