Quarterback Anu Solomon

Last weekend marked the second All-American Game for Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman quarterback Anu Solomon, as the 6-foot-1, 205-pound athlete was in Southern California for the Polynesian Classic.

This week, however, Solomon was supporting from the sidelines, as he's recovering from an injury he suffered during Semper Fi All-American Bowl practices earlier this month.

"I broke my thumb a few weeks ago. It was already broken before the game, but I messed up the healing process, so I didn't end up playing today," he said.

Solomon, who recently received his fourth star on, has been keeping busy since the end of his senior season.

"Things have been great. I've been working out, rehabilitating my thumb, trying to get better for the next level," he said.

The signal-caller recently took his official visit to Arizona, where he has been a long-time commit.

"It was great. I checked out the campus, met a lot of people. They showed us around and it was a really good time," he said.

Solomon also had the chance to talk with the coaches about they plan on incorporating him into the Wildcats' offense.

"They said my physical abilities, what I can do on the field, can help them with their system. They are going to put some plays in that fit me, but other than that, I'll be doing the same things that Coach Rich Rodriguez is already doing," he said.

During his senior season, Solomon showed off a true dual-threat ability. Does he think he'll use his run game heavily in college?

"Hopefully. We'll see what happens," he said.

For now, the athlete is biding his time until he joins the Wildcats' program.

"I'll head up to campus as soon as I'm done with high school, which is June 3rd. I'll be there for the first session," he said.
