Arizona football recruiting: Terrell Burgess waiting on his decision

Arizona has one corner locked in for 2016, and could be adding another one

Student Sports

The Arizona Wildcats were hosting a few special visitors this weekend for Homecoming, one of which was top 100 corner Terrell Burgess out of San Marcos, California.

He was on campus in late July this summer for an unofficial visit, and his second time around seemed to treat him well. "I really enjoyed the visit. Experiencing a game, the atmosphere, the community, everything was great, getting a chance to meet one on one with position coach, defensive coordinator and the head coach. I love the program," he said about his visit.

His commitment won't come anytime soon, as he plans to decide sometime in December, if not January. Utah, Arizona, Nevada, SDSU and Oregon State are some of his favorites, and he's open to anyone else that offers. But good news for Arizona, "they're (Arizona) towards the top," he said.

He needs to make sure he finds the best fit for himself, which also includes his major, either pre-law or business management. And he wants a great atmosphere to play in front of.

Arizona has plenty of room in the recruiting class, and there couldn't be a bigger need at corner for the Wildcats right now. This is someone who will be able to step in immediately for the Arizona secondary next year, as we've seen plenty of inexperienced corners get thrown out there already. The defensive back unit doesn't seem to have a guy in line to step up either, with Cam Denson not quite living up to his recruiting ratings, and a few other guys still learning the position.

I get a pretty good feeling that Burgess ends up signing with Arizona, but I would expect Utah to make to make a strong push for his services.
