Matt Scott likes what he sees in Tucson

Heading into the 2008 recruiting season, it was apparent that Arizona badly needed to bring in a star quarterback. That was accomplished in June when the Wildcats secured a commitment from 6-foot-3, 205-pound Corona (Calif.) Centennial QB Matt Scott.

The four-star prospect, ranked as the 5th best dual-threat quarterback and 43rd rated player in California by, chose Arizona over offers from Arizona State, California, Minnesota, Washington, Boise State, Utah and San Diego State.

While he's been on the UA campus before, this past weekend Scott was able to come back for an official visit to see the Wildcats take on UCLA.

"It was good," Scott said. "I had a lot of fun. We got there like 9am, went to the game and it was a great game; we got the win. We hung out with some of the players after the game and then went to dinner."

Scott got to see the Wildcats' offense first hand, but considering that his high school runs the spread, he didn't see anything that surprised him.

"I kind of knew what they are doing because we do the same thing at our school," Scott said. "I was still pretty impressed with the offense though. They had a lot of yards."

With Willie Tuitama coming back for his senior season, Scott realizes he'll likely have to sit on the bench for a year before he gets a chance to make an impact.
