Tavarres ready for decision

Myke Tavarres said he's probably going to make his commitment on Wednesday and the junior college linebacker is down to Arizona and Arkansas.
The Weed (Calif.) College of the Siskiyous standout said he's narrowed his choices to those two programs, likes many things about each team but is about ready to make his pledge.
Tavarres, originally from Oregon, said there are many things about Arizona that stand out including the school, the coaching staff and its location closer to home.
"I love the school, I love the whole college feel but I didn't get a chance to meet the players," Tavarres said.
"I liked what I saw when I was there. I am very familiar with the Pac-12 because I grew up in Oregon so I know a lot about the conference. I've always been familiar with that so that's a big reason why I might go play for them because it's closer to home. I know a little bit more about them."
Arkansas also stands out to the three-star outside linebacker who also has offers from Nevada, Oregon State, Rutgers and Texas Tech.
Tavarres, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound recruit, has a strong relationship with linebackers coach Taver Johnson plus he really enjoyed being around some of the players.
It's going to be a tough decision for the junior college prospect.
"I love the coaching staff at Arkansas," Tavarres said. "Coach Johnson and I have a really good relationship.
"I got to meet the players and I loved how they're doing things. They all have their minds on straight, they're excited about this upcoming season and how they're going to work. The fans are really strong and really supportive of the team and what they're doing."
