Nate Sudfeld is one of the highest ranked quarterbacks available in the class of 2012 and the gunslinger out of California recently opened his recruitment up after decommiting from the Arizona Wildcats. Once viewed as a perfect fit in Tucson, the hiring of Rich Rodriguez and the inclusion of the read-option offense has caused the 6'5, 230 pound Sudfeld to weigh all of his options.
According to this update from ESPN, Sudfeld has the UCLA Bruins high on his list and will take a visit in the very near future. The senior quarterback has said multiple times he hopes to enroll early in order to participate in Spring Practice.
"I'm going to visit UCLA (Jan. 20) and they have been recruiting me hard for a while now. They haven't offered me yet but hopefully it happens. I plan to graduate early and that was really the sticking point in me opening things up. I just didn't feel comfortable enrolling early at Arizona right now before I really knew more about the new staff. Like I said, they're still going to recruit me and I'm still looking at them as well."
Head coach Jim Mora has been on fire in recent weeks on the recruiting trail and the addition of Sudfeld would be absolutely huge for the Bruins. It sounds like Sudfeld still views the Wildcats as the leaders in his recruitment -- especially with there being a vacancy at the quarterback position come 2013 -- although the next few weeks will be huge for the programs trying to get back into the mix.
