Arizona OL on Cougs' radar

ARIZONA OFFENSIVE LINE prospect Denzell Dotson, who holds an offer from Washington State, does some of his best work in tight quarters. He also holds an added benefit not many other prospects possess.

Dotson (6-2, 280) is on pace to graduate in December, thus making him eligible to join a program early and go through spring ball, as was the case with seven Cougars this past January.

"Washington State seems like a pretty good school. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to offer, check out the campus down the road…they sound like they're going to have a good program this year," said Dotson.

Dotson, according to, plays a physical brand of football, and is a guard prospect who is "very good in a phone booth. Strong, once he gets his hands on a defender, call it quits. Big, thick legs help him play with a sound base. Has the size to compete now but needs to avoid getting too much bigger, could end up hurting his mobility in the long run."

Dotson holds offers from WSU, Arizona State. Wyoming and others. Georgia Tech and Missouri are among those showing increasing interest and could swell his offer total soon.

As an early graduate, he plans on making his decision early but says he's not yet to a place where he wants to narrow things down.

"I'm open to all schools, I have a checklist and I'm constantly going over it and comparing things. But I don't have any favorites, not at all, at this time," said Dotson.
