Cory Elmore trip report

One might wonder what a committed recruit does on his official visit. After all, the player has already chosen the school and doesn't need a huge sell job. Cory Elmore is one of these players and he tells us what he did in Tucson over the weekend.

Elmore, the 6-5, 260-pound offensive lineman from Simi Valley first visited Tucson for the elite camp over the summer and both he and his twin brother Ricky committed to the staff a few months later.

Although he had been to the campus before, both he and his brother still had a lot to see and do.

"We got to hang out with the players," Elmore said. "I met guys like Eben Britton, James (Tretheway) and Adam (Hawes). We hung out with other recruits. We got a walk through of the school. We saw a lot of the same things we saw over the summer, but it was still cool.

"We spent a lot of time hanging out with other recruits and the players," he continued. "We really got to learn what freshman life was like."

One might wonder if the visits were different for players that have already committed and the players that are still being courted. According to Elmore, he and the other committed players were treated the same as those who were uncommitted.

"The coaches treated us all the same," Elmore insisted. "We were treated no different than the other recruits. We were not left in a corner. We got the coaches' full attention, just like the other recruits. We were included in everything."

Elmore got some alone time with two of the coaches, Eric Wolford and Mike Stoops.

"I spent a lot of time with coach Wolford because he is going to be my position coach," Elmore said. "Of course Mike Stoops is just ‘THE' guy."

The visit did nothing but solidify the choice in Elmore's mind.

"I can't wait for next year," he said. "I am looking forward to it. I have no regrets on the decision. This is the right place for me."
