Cats Co-Lead for Cate

The Wildcats are hurting badly for quarterback depth. Therefore, they have targeted a few of the top signal callers around the nation to offer. One of them, <b>Alex Cate</b>, has been very receptive to the staff and it appears that at this point UA has as good a shot as any of garnering his services.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 198
40 time: 4.76
Bench: 245
From: Salt Lake City, Utah
High School: Cottonwood

"I have written offers from Nebraska, Arizona, Colorado, and Kansas," said Alex Cate. "I am looking at those schools and I also like Georgia, Iowa and Cal. Nebraska and Arizona are the ones I am looking at the hardest right now.

"I have been speaking with coach (Nebraska Head Coach Bill) Callahan at Nebraska and coach (Offensive Coordinator Mike) Canales at Arizona. I like a lot of the same things about those programs. They both have good coaches and they are both on their way back to the top."

As a junior, Cate threw for 3,586 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions in completing 196 out of 379 attempts. He also had one rushing touchdown. Cate was named first team all-state. "I read defenses well so I can recognize a lot of things. I have good feet and am technically sound."

Cate will attend a combine in May, and also plans on attending a camp at Georgia. "I am not sure about any others right now."

His father played for Utah, but the Utes do not appear to have a shot at him. "I have spoken with the coaches there and they are nice, but I am really looking to go out-of-state. My father played for Utah. My parents are mainly leaving this decision up to me."

He carries a 3.3 core GPA just took the ACT. Cate would like to major in Business.
