Brandon Cox had a great visit to Utah this past weekend but the Arizona commit said he's sticking with his pledge for now and wants to take an official visit to Tucson.
"It's nice but at the same time I'm still committed to Arizona as of right now," Cox said.
"It was a nice atmosphere and it was nice to go see another place. They told me to keep in touch and keep talking to them. Coach (Brian) Johnson and I talk almost weekly so we're building our relationship but I talk to the coaches at Arizona and I'm trying to take a visit out there.
"I've been to Arizona and I still feel that's the right one for me right now."
That might be the case but the three-star quarterback from Pasadena, Calif., said he had an outstanding time during his visit to Utah. The Utes lost to USC on Thursday night but the stadium was rocking and Cox was there to soak it all in.
"It was nice out there," Cox said. "One of the coaches is a really close friend of mine since I was young and so when I found out he was out there I wanted an opportunity to go check out the place and it's really nice actually.
"The team gets along very well and coach Johnson is a young offensive coordinator and he knows what he's doing too so it was a great experience to go see the place, meet the guys and meet the coaches. They're all great guys."
The game atmosphere was something special to Cox, rated as the No. 16 dual-threat quarterback in the 2013 class by Rivals.com.
"It's almost like no other," Cox said. "The place gets rocking and it keeps rocking. It's hard to hear in the stadium sometimes especially in that first quarter when Matt Barkley was having problems in the beginning.
"The atmosphere is wonderful and the city of Salt Lake definitely loves their Ute football."
