A BCS offer was overdue for wide receiver Drew Wolitarsky. The 2013 prospect from Canyon County (Calif.) Canyon isn’t missing much. At 6-3, 205 pounds, Wolitarsky has plenty of size. His 75 catches in 2011 for 1628 yards shows that he’s been plenty productive and with track times of 11.07 in the 100, 22.3 in the 200 and 50.07 in the 400, the speed is there as well.
And now the offer is there.
Previously Wolitarsky had landed an offer from Army but his resume of size, speed and production seemed to be worthy of something bigger. On Tuesday, Arizona gave him that BCS offer he was waiting for.
Though he doesn’t yet know much about the program, the big target was thrilled about the new offer and hopes to learn more about Arizona.
“I haven’t brushed up really on [Arizona].” Wolitarsky said. “I can’t say I know a lot. I’m meeting with the coach next week so I’ll get a briefing on that. He’s coming down to my school. I can’t wait to learn more about it. It’s Pac-12 so it’s big.”
Not only is the three-star prospect excited about the new offer but he also has a feeling of relief.
“It’s a huge relief for me to know that other stuff might be coming now and I finally got some recognition,” he said. “It’s a relief to me and my parents that I can have my college paid for. It was stressful.”
In addition to his new offer, San Diego State, Washington, and Ivy League programs have shown him interest. He also hopes to attend camps this summer at USC and Notre Dame in hopes of earning offers. But already as a Pac-12 school, Arizona fits part of the bill as to what he’s looking for.
“I love the Pac-12 because my favorite team when I was younger was USC so I watched all the Pac-12 games,” he said. “I’m interested in Stanford, I love where it is and I love the dedication level they give. I’d love to see that school. Oregon and Washington I’m also interested. Notre Dame I also love and Boise State.”
Expect Arizona to be the first of many offers as schools continue to see Woltarsky in person this spring.
