Signing Day Awards: Best Offensive Player

Nick Wilson

Arizona is bringing in a ton of talent on the offensive side of the ball. Read on to see which player we think is the best.

Michael Luke: There haven't been a lot of running backs like Nick Wilson to sign with Arizona, and Coach Rodriguez knows this. It figures to be a backfield by committee early on, but look for Wilson to eventually take over the roll as the power back.

This is a time Wilson has been thinking about for quite a while and as one of the earliest commits, he was able to spend his senior season examining Arizona's offense.

Cody James Martin: Wilson is without a doubt the best offensive weapon in the class. Denson has the versatility, but Wilson is specialized and, in time, could be just as good as Ka'Deem Carey, if not better.

That is a tall order to fill, but the running back is built similar to Carey and is a powerful runner between the tackles. One thing that Wilson does have, that Carey lacked, is breakaway speed.

Pierre Cormier will likely step in as the starter and speed back, but Wilson has the talent and skills to jump Zach Green on the depth chart and contribute right away as the power back in the offense.

If he can adjust and get on the field right away, there is no reason to think Arizona won't have plenty of talent at the position for the next few years.

Jason Scheer: The obvious answer is Wilson, but in terms of pure ability and talent, I am going to go with Cameron Denson.

Arizona is extremely deep at wide receiver and it may not happen right away, but Denson is going to make an impact at Arizona.

He has fantastic speed, is deceptive, and has good hands as well. Denson is the type of receiver that can be used in a variety of ways in a Rodriguez offense and we think the head coach will do just that. Recommended Stories
