Two Schools Emerge For Sutton

Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive tackle Will Sutton is still interested in UCLA, but the Bruins are now running behind two other Pac-10 programs. He talks about those two schools and where he stands with the Bruins...

Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive tackle Will Sutton (6-1, 250), the state's top defensive tackle prospect, is starting to focus on two schools, while leaving the door open for one more.

Arizona and Arizona State, where former teammates play, have emerged as the leaders for Sutton.

He said: "I visited Arizona State about three weeks ago and then I went to Arizona the next weekend. I saw all my former teammates at Arizona State and that was a good visit. My trip to Arizona was really good, too. Matt (Scott, a former Centennial teammate) was my host. Everything was nice about that visit. They (Arizona and Arizona State) are pretty much the same to me. The difference is at Arizona I had only one guy telling me to come there and at Arizona State I had three of them," said Sutton.

Both schools want Sutton to continue playing defensive tackle for them, and he hasn't been able to separate one from the other.

What are the chances of of other schools making a serious run for him?

"I really like the two Arizona schools. It might come down to those two," Sutton said. "I'm still talking some with UCLA. They called me and told me to hold on because they're waiting to see what other guys are doing. They send me a bunch of letters still. But I guess I'm in their second group so we'll see what happens. So Arizona and Arizona State are my leaders."

Sutton has taken visits to both Arizona schools, while he also has a plan to visit Fresno State on January 9th. He doesn't have a date yet, but plans to visitNebraska, a program that offered him in the spring and where teammate Taylor Martinez is already committed.

There could be other visits, also.

"I'm debating on UNLV, Colorado State or San Diego State for my last visit," said Sutton.

On Friday night, Centennial will face Murrieta Valley in the CIF-SS Inland Division semifinals and then Saturday, he'll take the SAT then head to the Rose Bowl for the USC-UCLA game.

"We're clicking on all cylinders right now and doing real good," said Sutton. "We want to win another title and get back to the state championship game. If we win CIF, we'll be the first undefeated team at Centennial to win it back-to-back. We just want to play our best."

Following the season, Sutton will head down to Myrtle Beach where he'll play for the West in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
