Fresh off another playoff victory, Michael Eubank is mainly focused on winning a state championship this weekend with his Corona (Calif.) Centennial team but with so much going on with his recruitment it's hard not to be cognizant of those developments, too.
Arizona has recently started showing much more interest in the 6-foot-5, 232-pound prospect who is equally dangerous running with or throwing the ball. He had 208 passing yards, 137 rushing yards and two total touchdowns in a 42-23 win at Chino Hills last weekend.
In attendance was Arizona quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo and a coach from Baylor who was also there to scout an underclassman lineman at Centennial.

But the word continues to get out on Eubank, who has thrown for 2,532 yards with 20 touchdowns and three interceptions and has rushed for 972 yards and 18 scores so far this season.
What helps Arizona's chances with Eubank - that's if the Wildcats offer - is that former Corona Centennial quarterback Matt Scott is a mentor to him and the two have already discussed college options.
"That would be amazing," Eubank said of a potential Arizona offer. "Matt Scott was my mentor and we've talked a lot about the program there.
"(An offer) definitely would put them up top. What they've done with their quarterbacks especially in recent seasons has been amazing."
Mississippi State has also recently increased its interest and wants Eubank to schedule an official visit. He has already been to Arizona State and since he's focused on finishing out his senior year will wait until the end of his season to schedule any other trips.
Washington, Vanderbilt, UNLV, San Jose State, Utah State and Northern Colorado have also offered. Rivals.com rates Eubank as the No. 13 pro-style quarterback nationally and No. 70 in the California state rankings.
