Cofer makes a decision

He visited Tucson just a few weeks ago and committed to Arizona, but after getting home Cedric Cofer hedged a bit and considered taking some more visits. After missing a lot of time with a leg injury, Cofer saw his stock drop and a lot of teams who were once interested disappear. Cofer made a final decision this past weekend.

Cedric Cofer decided to stick with his original commitment and attend Arizona.

"I've committed to Arizona and I'm not taking any more visits," Cofer told HearlandRecruiting. "I had planned on either visiting Baylor or New Mexico this weekend, but I've changed my mind."

Cofer was also going to visit Kansas State on the 24th but has cancelled that visit as well.

Arizona did not drop the 300-pounder after his injury and that move helped the Wildcats land a player that many recruiting analysts are very high on.

"They stuck with me when a lot of schools disappeared," Cofer said. "That was definitely a reason I liked Arizona."

He has been described as, "a quick, massive and smart defensive tackle." He's been working out and seems to be on his way to 100%.

Cofer missed a majority of the 2002 season with multiple fractures to his right shin.

"It's doing a lot better now," he said. "I had six fractures in all. All but one has now healed."
