Sudfeld hesitant about situation

Nathan Sudfeld said he's hesitant about the hiring of Rich Rodriguez at Arizona because the Modesto (Calif.) Modesto Christian quarterback, who pledged to the Wildcats in early June, is more pro-style than dual-threat and that is a concern.
"I'm really not sure," Sudfeld said. "I'm a little hesitant because of the offenses I've seen him run. I think he's a good coach but I'm not sure I'm the type of quarterback he would need. I'm more of a pro-style, drop-back passer."
Before Sudfeld considers de-committing or seriously looking at other programs, the three-star prospect would like to talk with Rodriguez about how he envisions Arizona's future especially at quarterback.
Those conversations could go a long way in determining what the future holds for Sudfeld, who threw for 2,390 yards with 29 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season.
"The offenses he's run are more designed for Denard Robinson or Pat White," Sudfeld said. "I'm a little hesitant honestly but I want to meet him or talk to him on the phone and see where he sees me and see if he thinks I'd be a good addition.
"I'll take that into consideration and see which quarterback coach is hired. I'm a little hesitant and not sure what's going to happen but I'm not just going to de-commit. I'm going to talk to him and see what he's thinking.
"I just want to talk to him and see what he says. I don't know what he can say to keep me or for me to de-commit. It's kind of fresh and I haven't really processed it with my family so as of right now I'm a little hesitant and a little uneasy and unsure about the whole thing."
Sudfeld, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound prospect, said he's going to talk with other programs and could possibly take visits. This weekend he's headed to the USC-UCLA game and Fresno State, Nevada, Stanford and some other teams have been in contact.
"I'm probably going to talk to some other schools and see what else is out there and put myself out there a little bit but like I said it's still fresh and I haven't really processed it yet," Sudfeld said.
"I'm not really sure but I'll probably put myself out there a little more and see where I go from here in the next few weeks."
