Arizona has offered its fair share of players and here is an idea of what the defensive board looks like.
Defensive End: Arizona's offers at this position is in the double digits, some of which the UA simply has no chance with (Greg Townsend for instance).
James Adenyanju and DeVante Wilson are two weakside defensive ends that Arizona would love to land. Having landed Joseph Carter already, it may not be a top priority, but the WIldcats would like to see one more.
Chances are equal for both, as both players intends to take their time and official visits. Arizona is in decent shape, but will try hard to get both players on campus this summer.
Davon Moreland is another player the UA has offered, but he is blowing up as well. UCLA is a major player and early leader.
Arizona has recently offered Jarret Finau and is in strong with him, although a decision does not seem to be coming any time soon. It is the same situation with Ian Seau, as Arizona is doing well with him but Seau is remaining patient.
LB: Rob Hankins is probably the name people are most familiar with and Arizona is in the top 8 for him with speculation being that Miami leads.
Hankins' recruitment will likely come down to official visits and Arizona's chances will come down to whether or not it gets one.
As seems to be the case every year, Arizona is doing great recruiting linebackers.
The UA is in the top two or three for Ohio backer Sean Duggan, Phoenix athlete Israel Marshall, Texas backer Nico Ornelas, and Mesa's Sam Papa.
In other words, expect Arizona's linebacker recruiting to be more than fine this year.
Cornerback:Most of Arizona's offers are top 50 players at this position.
Tamani Carter is one of the newest offers and Arizona is right in the thick of things for him and may be the favorite.
David Jenkins and Floyd Raven are the newest offers and the UA is doing fine with them.
Arizona would be happy to land two players at corner and call it a day.
Safety: Arizona would love nothing more than to land Eilar Hardy and it somewhat has a shot of doing so.
Tim Kish is doing a great job in Ohio and it seems to be paying off as Hardy is planning on taking an unofficial visit this summer.
The Wildcats are also doing well with Everman (Texas) safety James Bailey, who is a new offer and yet another Ohio player, Mark Murphy.
