Avery Moss had considered Arizona as his favorite but after coach Mike Stoops was fired earlier this season the three-star defensive end from Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol said he has reconsidered his recruitment.
The Wildcats are still one of his favorites but Moss said he's going to consider every other program and that he's not so certain about Arizona any longer.
Another thing that is interesting about Moss' relationship with Arizona is that he said after talking with its athletic director, Greg Byrne, a coach could be hired within weeks.

"It was Arizona, that was the best thing for me, but after Stoops got fired it's now an open game with me, I'm open to anything," Moss said.
"I'm definitely going to wait for them. I talked to the athletic director and I told them I'm going to wait to see what happens and he said a coach could be hired by the first week of December. At the same time, it puts them down a notch from what they used to be."
Moss, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end, said he's strongly considering a visit to Nebraska with five-star offensive lineman and teammate Andrus Peat the weekend of Nov. 25 when the Huskers host Iowa in their regular-season finale.
Recently, Nebraska has made a big move for Moss, rated No. 33 at strong-side defensive end in the 2012 class and No. 12 in the Arizona state rankings by Rivals.com. If things go well, the Huskers could move to the top.
"One that is supposedly coming up, I have to talk with my father, but I've been talking to Nebraska and I could be taking a visit when they play Iowa with Andrus.
"It could definitely be one of those trips that decide where I'm going next year. They definitely have a good school and a great program so if everything goes right it could be the place where I go next year."
Arizona State, Purdue, San Diego State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State have also offered Moss, who said he'd like to also visit with the Boilermakers before making a decision.
