Cormier planning important visit

Pierre Cormier is planning to visit Arizona next week and it could be a major trip for the San Diego (Calif.) Madison running back who recently said the Wildcats have moved to the top of his list.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound three-star running back said he's planning to be in Tucson either next Thursday or Friday. He didn't rule out a commitment but said he's really looking forward to the trip because Arizona has moved way up.
"It's really big for me," Cormier said. "I feel like I'm going to be really into the school and the program. I want to see what they're about and I think I'm going to like the school even more.
"It's really all about getting a feel for the place because I already know what kind of offense they're running. I'll look to see that as well but it will be mainly the school and what kind of feeling I get from the whole place in general."
In recent weeks, Cormier said Arizona has made a big impression on him and after considering other programs the Wildcats have moved to the top of his list.
The San Diego standout did not rule out a commitment during his visit but gave no hint, either, if he would decide if things went well.
"Right now it's kind of whatever happens," Cormier said. "I just want to make sure it's the right decision for me and I want to look over everything."
In total, Cormier has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Fresno State, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA, Utah, Vanderbilt and Washington State.
Rivals.com rates him as the No. 36 running back in the 2013 class and the No. 50 prospect in the California state rankings. In his junior season, Cormier rushed for 1,471 yards and 20 touchdowns.
