Franke leaning certain way

Jase Franke was one of many top recruits at Arizona this past weekend for the unveiling of its new facilities and the Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure defensive end had high praise for the Wildcats.
So much so that Franke said he's seriously considering a commitment.
"It went above what I was expecting," Franke said. "The team overall is going to be a lot better than 7-5 this year. It's a really good fit for me and I think I'll most likely end up there. I still want to wait and see what happens.
"The whole facility goes above what I've seen in the past. Arizona is really stepping up overall. I think I want to wait about another month."
Further making it seem like Franke could very well end up at Arizona is that former Ventura St. Bonaventure teammate Zachary Green plays for the Wildcats and has been pushing the program.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Franke seems to be listening.
"Zach Green, we're buddies and he goes there now, he said I'd really like it and that I'd fit in and they need help on defense," Franke said. "I think I'll wait another month to see what happens because I'm still waiting on a bunch of other schools and I want to see what happens there."
Arizona has to be considered the favorite but Franke could have many other options once his senior season rolls around.
Colorado, Miami (Ohio) and San Jose State have also offered and Franke said Arizona State, UCLA, Virginia, Penn State, Maryland and Boise State are showing interest. Middle Tennessee State could offer soon.
"I want to see what happens with all those schools," Franke said.
