According to multiple reports, Arizona is planning to hire former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin to take over in Tucson. Here is the latest reaction from many signed - and some committed - prospects regarding the Sumlin news.

“It’s great that we got him. He’s a great coach and I think he’s the perfect guy for the job.”

“With him as the head coach and (Marcel) Yates as the defensive coordinator it appears to be a step in the right direction.”

“I’m pretty fired up. I love how he puts the ball in the air a lot.”

“It’s a good fit and I feel he could make a huge impact on the program.”

“Can’t wait to get to Tucson.”

“Very excited. All the guys are hyped.”

“I prefer not to speak on it. Thank you.”

“It will be a good opportunity for him and the program that’s being built. Coach Sumlin should change the whole Arizona atmosphere and mentality in the players which should lead to more success in our next upcoming years.”

“I have no thoughts on it right now.”
