All-State football team: Douglass' Cayman Bundage sticking with Arizona, stuck with a bad feeling about not taking state

CAYMAN BUNDAGE — Slimming down for his senior season helped make this Douglass Trojan one of the state's most sought-after lineman. And he's still planning to attend Arizona, despite Mike Stoops' firing.

He committed to Arizona in the summer, but after the firing of coach Mike Stoops, he began to wonder if it was still the place for him.

However, a trip to the campus and a meeting with new coach Rich Rodriguez gave him all the information he needed to reaffirm his decision to stick with the Wildcats.

“You can tell he's a good coach from his record,” Bundage said. “Then when I met him, he's a people person. We bonded real well and that was a plus.”

Bundage was considering other options until his trip to Tucson, Ariz., in early December.

“There were some questions I had, and I got them answered,” said Bundage, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound interior lineman. “The O-line coach (Robert Anae) stayed on the staff, so I'll still be playing for the same line coach.

“I think we're gonna be good. We're gonna have a productive season, I can tell.”
