Wide-open DT eyeing the Cats

Quality defensive tackles are always a priority in a recruiting class. Even though the Wildcats are starting to build up some depth at the spot, they also cannot rest on their laurels. If the John Mackovic era taught the program anything it was that you can never have too many interior defensive linemen.

Trevor Guyton is a Washington defensive tackle who is really garnering attention. The 6-3, 270 pounder is boasting offers from Oregon, Nebraska, Washington, Washington State, Arizona, Arizona State and Boise State and is also interested in Cal and USC.

He isn't claiming any favorites at this time.

"I like all of them," Guyton claimed. "I'm not really close to narrowing my list."

He has a brother who is a student at Arizona and the Wildcats are doing a good job recruiting him.

"I'm real interested in Arizona," he confirmed. "My brother goes there, so I know a lot about them. I really like coach Tuiasasopo who is recruiting me."

Not only is he familiar with the school because of the program, but the coaches have done a great job informing him of what kind of role he could have in Tucson.

"They want me to play the three technique," Guyton explained. "Most teams see me playing the three technique. I really think I can play early there."

Although Guyton would love to get the recruiting process done before his senior year, he does not see that happening. He wants to visit as many campuses as he can, but cannot start making official visits until next fall.

He has made a few unofficials over the spring and will camp with Cal and Washington State (team camp) over the summer. By the end of the summer he wants to narrow his list down so he can start to make his decision.

He wants to learn a lot more about the schools he will eventually choose from.

"I need to know more about their academics, location and student body," Guyton explained. "I need to meet all the coaches and see how I fit in at the schools."

He really wants to take as many official visits as he can during the season so a possible decision could be made in the middle of the fall.
