Four-star running back Ka'Deem Carey loved his visit to Arizona this weekend as the Oro Valley (Ariz.) Canyon Del Oro standout and the Wildcats' staff sat down and talked about the future.
There's a very good chance Carey, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound recruit, could sign with Arizona since he's been committed since June and seems to enjoy everything about the place.
But Carey will visit Arizona State next weekend and he said the Sun Devils have been coming on strong in recent weeks.

Still, his visit to Tucson went well and Carey said it helped him better understand where he fits in with Arizona's offense moving forward.
"It went extremely well down there," Carey said. "We just talked a lot about the offensive line and how they're young and how we could grow together. They were giving me some information that I enjoyed hearing.
"I still love the place. I enjoy being there so I'm looking forward to going there but I would definitely like to see what else is out there before I make my final choice. This visit did sum it up and show me what they have to offer. It gave me a good idea of where I fit in with the U of A."
Arizona State looms though for Carey, rated as the No. 13 running back, No. 191 overall and seventh in the Arizona state rankings by Rivals.com. He'll be in Tempe next weekend to see what the Sun Devils have to offer.
"It will be good because it will definitely show where I stand with both schools," Carey said.
"I like the U of A but I definitely want to see what's out there and what (Arizona State) can offer. I've been keeping that door open and we've been talking."
It's almost a certainty that Carey will play at either Arizona or Arizona State since he would prefer to stay close to home but if he leaves the state, the Canyon Del Oro star said Colorado could be the destination. The new Buffaloes' staff hasn't talked much with him but he'll keep that option open.
Whichever school lands Carey is getting a major player. He rushed for 1,754 yards and 26 touchdowns in his senior season. As a junior, Carey had 2,738 yards and 43 scores.
