Gerell Re-opens recruitment

The Arizona Wildcats recruiting class got off to a flying start last November when the Cats landed one of the state's best prospects for the 2008 class. Now that initial commitment is off the table and the Cats are down but not out in the G-Rob sweepstakes.

Chandler Hamilton High School superstar athlete Gerell Robinson decided to completely open his recruitment back up and take all five of his official visits this fall. Robinson said he made the decision based on his intended position to play at the collegiate level.

"I decided that I want to play receiver in college," the four star Robinson said. "I committed to Arizona as a quarterback so I wanted to open my recruitment up and take visits and see what is out there for me. I called Coach (Tim) Kish and told him first because he has always been straight with me so he deserved the respect to hear it from me first."

Robinson has visits set for Georgia Tech and Oregon and has a slew of schools after him at this time. Robinson is not too sure where the rest of his visits will be to or if he plans on visiting Arizona officially or not.

"I know I like Florida so I could visit there," he said. "I really have a lot of schools to look through and try and decide if I want to visit them or not. I could visit Arizona but I don't know if I will since they are close and I have been there so much I know what is there."

Gerell did say that just because he is no longer committed to the Cats it does not mean the Cats are now playing second fiddle to anyone else. He says the Cats have just as good a chance as anyone right now and a lot of the reason is the new offense.

"Arizona is still up there towards the top," he commented. "I mean with their offense the receivers can put up huge numbers and have a ton of fun playing in that system. I would kind of be crazy not to at least give it a chance."
