Five favorites for Arizona athlete

Kelvin Fisher Jr. probably won't make a commitment until after his senior season but his top five is relatively firm and the Gilbert (Ariz.) Higley athlete spent the summer months taking some visits to his favorite schools.
Fisher, a 5-foot-11, 173-pound recruit, visited Pittsburgh, Arkansas, Oregon and Arizona State this summer and said Boise State is also in his top five. His latest trip was an unofficial to Pitt which he thoroughly enjoyed.
"It was cool," Fisher said. "I got to see the coaches again. It was a pretty good visit. They said they want to use me as a cornerback and also maybe as a running back but it's up to me."
It will be a close call for Fisher, rated No. 39 at athlete and eighth in the Arizona state rankings by Rivals.com, because all five of his favorites still have a fighting chance. A trip to Arkansas impressed him and so did stops at Oregon and Arizona State, where he has been multiple times.
"The one thing I was really impressed with (at Arkansas) was the campus life," Fisher said. "It seemed really nice out there and the people out there were really friendly. It was a nice place to be.
"I had a really good time out at Oregon. The weather was nice and it was really cool. The coaches were really cool and they were a pleasure to be around. I wouldn't say it was an unofficial (to Arizona State). I just went up to the school to look around. It was real cool to just see the school again. I've been up there so many times."
Washington has started to get involved with Fisher, who said the Huskies could crack his top five at some point and since he's not in a rush to make a decision he'll see how things play out. Fisher expects to wait until January to make his decision.
In his junior season, Fisher rushed for 819 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was also used as a receiver and on special teams and many programs have considered using him as a defensive back.
