Arizona is still the favorite for Julian Brooks, the Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon wide receiver who said the academics and athletics fit so well in Tucson and that's why the Wildcats still remain on top.
"When I went up there I liked the coaching staff and I liked everything else," Brooks said. "I liked the campus. Their academics pretty much stand out to me because I want to be a sports agent and their business management program is really good.
"They have a really strong program so that's that and I like them football-wise because they throw the ball a lot and they want me at wide receiver."

The Wildcats are on top for Brooks, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect, but Arizona State cannot be counted out either since he's planning an official visit there for its matchup against Oregon State on Oct. 1.
Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Fresno State, Oregon State, Utah State and Washington State have all offered Brooks, who camped at Arizona and UCLA this summer.
N.C. State and Utah have also started showing interest in the Southern California receiver who said he's not rushing a decision because he wants to be positive before making his commitment.
"I don't want to jump into it and make a wrong decision and then de-commit like all these kids are doing," Brooks said. "I just want to be set on my commitment and not back out on any school."
Trips to Arizona and Arizona State are almost certain to happen and Brooks said this summer before making his decision he'd like to also see Colorado and Oregon State.
