2013 quarterback prospect Anu Solomon committed to Arizona back in May and has stayed true to that commitment over the past month. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound signal caller from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman recently paid the Arizona campus a visit and had a chance to catch up with the coaching staff in the process.
“They went over the basic stuff,” Solomon said. “We did a big tour of the weight room and the school. We did that on my unofficial during Spring break, but it was great to have another one.
"I met just about every coach down there. I am probably going to be there more, probably next week.”
Solomon was able to build a strong relationship with the Wildcats’ staff over the past few months and it has grown even stronger since his commitment.
“We are close right now,” Solomon said. “Whenever we talk we have inside jokes now; it’s pretty great."
UA head coach Rich Rodriguez has been known to target several quarterback prospects in just about every recruiting class he evaluates. Many wondered how Solomon would react to the commitments of Tommy Woodson and Brandon Cox, but the prospect from Las Vegas isn’t bothered by the addition of more quarterbacks in the class.
“No,” Solomon said. “Not at all. I knew they wanted to get another quarterback.”
Many would expect other programs to come calling even after his decision to commit to UA, but has anyone tried luring him away from the Wildcats?
“No, not really,” Solomon said. "I think everybody knows that I am solid with Arizona."
Solomon has looked at the possibility of enrolling early, but is not too confident he will be able to do it.
“Right now I am trying to graduate early and see if I can enroll in the spring,” Solomon said. “For right now, that’s not looking too good, so I might enroll after the school year.”
There are months to go before letter of intent day arrives and it wouldn’t be surprising to see other schools pursuing Solomon. Despite the potential for other schools to come knocking, Solomon is very content with the decision he has made.
“Absolutely,” Solomon said of his decision. “I made the right choice. I love the place.”
