Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft wide out Chris Wellington took an official visit to Arizona this past weekend and it sounds like he's going to have a very tough decision to make. The receiver also visited Oregon State a week ago and said he may take one more visit this coming weekend.
Wellington, 6-1, 200 pounds raved about his visit to Oregon State a week ago. The only negative about the visit, according to Wellington, was the city itself. He said he was more comfortable in a big city envirnment and that's what he got in Tucson.
"Yeah, this was my favorite trip so far," Wellington said. "Tucson is a great place, it's a lot like Los Angeles and I was a lot more comfortable here than I was in Corvallis. Mike Thomas was my host and he's a cool dude. He showed me around the campus and we checked out the basketball game on Saturday which was nice.
"Everything else about the visit was pretty much the same though. We toured, then we ate, I talked to the coaches, ate some more, saw the stadium and the football facilities and then we ate again. That was basically the weekend."
Although Wellington said he was more comfortable in Tucson than Corvallis, Oregon State is definitely not out of it.
"There is still a lot of things I like better about Oregon State," Wellington added. "I like their offense and they throw the ball more than Arizona. I also want to win and I think Oregon State has a better team right now and I think they're in a good position to make a run next season.
"I still may visit Nevada this weekend too. Of all three schools, Nevada throws the ball more than anyone and I think they have a very good team coming back. They may play in a smaller conference, but I wouldn't be surprised if they could beat either of the two schools in the Pac 10 next year. They could be a top 25 team and I like them a lot.
"Right now, I'm just going to sit back and think everything over. I should know by Monday or Tuesday if I'll visit Nevada or not. If I decide not to, then I should be ready to make a decision by the end of the week but right now, it's too close to call between Oregon State and Arizona. Both have a lot of pluses that I'm going to weigh and I know I really can't go wrong with either school. It's going to come down to where I think I'll be the most comfortable, simple as that."
