Arizona coach Rich Rodriquez likes Georgia talent

The University of Arizona has only one football player from Georgia on its 2014 roster.

But Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez is hoping to add more, he told the AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter at a charity golf event in Greensboro on Monday.

“We still come out here to the Atlanta area a little bit in recruiting,” Rodriguez said. “Our coaching staff has a good bit of experience out here. If we can get guys to visit, that’s the key. If we can get guys from this area to come out to the desert in Tucson, we’ve got a great shot to get them. And once we do that, it’ll be a pipeline that keeps coming out West.”

The Arizona pipeline so far consists of Jack Banda, redshirt freshman tight end from Grayson High School.
