Mitch Lightfoot, a 6’9 210 pound power forward, is down to his final official visit and will find himself in Tucson this weekend to take one last look before making a commitment.

The schools in the hunt for the do-it-all forward are Arizona, Kansas, Stanford, St. John’s and Utah. Having already taken official visits to the others, Lightfoot made it a point for Arizona to be his final visit and Sean Miller looks to seal the deal.

Having already visited the Arizona campus a few times before PGU asked what else there would be left to see at this point.

“Yeah, I’ve been there before a few different times but this weekend I’m going to the tailgate and I cant wait to see the Wildcat fans.”

He’ll get the full treatment while on campus while getting a chance to go through the process of visiting with the honors college advisors.

“I want to major in Chemical Engineering or something in a related field. I took a class my sophomore year and it just really clicked with me and got me interested in that area of study,” Lightfoot said.

With this being his final visit a timetable definitely exists.

“I will take a week or two to decide on my future. I just want to relax and do what is right for me,” he told PGU.

“I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head. That’s why I want to wait around two weeks after the visit with the hope to fine-tune these ideas,” he said. “It’s just going to be a hard decision.”
