Beau Boyster took an unofficial visit to Arizona this past weekend for its spring game and it was especially important for the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive tackle since he just picked up an offer from the Wildcats.
The 6-foot-4, 285-pound recruit loved everything he saw in Tucson but isn't ready to commit just yet. His plan is to wait until after spring football and then make his decision but Arizona is definitely in the running.
"It was really, really nice," Boyster said. "The first day I took a campus tour and I talked to the o-line coach, coach (Robert) Anae, for a long time about the program and the things he does. I talked to coach (Mike) Stoops and I watched them play. It was really cool. I liked it a lot.
"The environment was really nice. When my dad and I went to dinner there was a ton of restaurants and it was a really cool environment. It was a lot different than what I thought it was going to be so that part of it was really cool."
Nevada has also offered Boyster and he said Washington and San Jose State have been showing the most interest and could be next on his list. He recently visited with San Jose State and said things went well but that he's still waiting to hear about the offer.
"I went to SJSU last week and I talked to the head coach for a really long time," Boyster said. "We didn't see the offensive line coach for too long but everything else was really nice. I think they're going to be the next school to offer me within the next couple days.
"They're still getting their staff assembled so they weren't able to do anything yet. I was thumbs up through the whole evaluation and now they're just waiting on the head coach. I think I'm going to get an offer from them pretty soon."
Boyster has also been in close contact with Washington offensive line coach Dan Cozzetto and is planning to visit the Huskies with St. John Bosco teammate C.J. Dozier for the spring game. Dozier already has a Washington offer.
Although it's too early to name any favorites, Boyster said he plans to have his decision finalized before the summer and that after visiting Arizona this past weekend the Wildcats are definitely high on his list.
