The Arizona programs have had their hands full in recent years keeping top talent in state. This year Arizona is once again top heavy with some very real prospects.
Friekh also visited Washington recently.
One of those key prospects is Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial offensive lineman Layth Friekh.
The 6-foot-5, 270-pound prep said the Arizona Wildcats are pursuing him harder than any other program.
"Arizona is pushing real hard for me right now," Friekh said. "They have been on me the hardest for a while and they were one of the first schools to offer. They tell me they love how I get after it and I do a good job sealing off the edge. I'm also good at my run-blocking."
Recently the four-star visited Washington for their junior day and came away impressed.
"I liked the campus a lot," he said. "The coaches were real cool and there was a lot of big time guys up there. That definitely caught my attention."
Friekh said he will be traveling to Los Angeles soon for the Nike combine and camp. While in the area he hopes to check out UCLA or USC.
"I'd love to get an offer from either of those schools. I'd also like to get more involved with Oregon and Michigan too. I'm pretty open to the process and I'm hearing from most of the Pac-12 already. I'm just hoping to lock up a few more of those key offers."
Friekh is a four-star and the nation's No. 286 overall player, according to the 247Composite.
