Go West? Or Go East?
That could be the decision for Plano West LB/DE Bryce Cottrell who was planning a trip to Arizona over the weekend. Cottrell, No. 51 on VYPE DFW’s list of area 2012 recruits, has offers from Syracuse in the Big East, Mississippi State in the SEC and Baylor in the Big 12.
Arizona could add another BCS offer for the returning All-District 8-5A linebacker.
Cottrell (6-3, 230) has shined in Plano West's 3-4 defense and is having a strong off-season.
He had a very active 80 tackles with five quarterback sacks last season.
He also has interest from Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. Plano West's defense has been producing top talent with Jackson Jeffcoat to Texas in 2009 and Class of '11 California signee Nathan Broussard.
Arizona just signed Parish Episcopal linebacker Rob Hankins, who lives in the Plano West attendance zone.
