In a perfect recruiting world for Arizona, Brett Hundley and Devin Fuller would be playing quarterback for the Wildcats.
Now, UA has to stop them as it takes on 16th-ranked on Homecoming on Saturday night (8 p.m., ESPN).
Former UA coach Mike Stoops and his staff didn’t gain enough traction with Hundley, who chose to not follow in his father’s footsteps. Brett Hundley Sr. was a running back at Arizona in the mid-1980s.
Hundley committed to UCLA at the beginning of his senior season at Chandler High School.
More than a year later, first-year Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez targeted Fuller, from Norwood, N.J., as a potential centerpiece to his first recruiting class in Tucson. Fuller opted for UCLA, which moved him from quarterback to receiver midway through last season.
Hundley is a potential 2014 first-round NFL draft pick. Fuller leads UCLA with 34 receptions for 417 yards and four touchdowns.
