Why Arizona could've loved Cam

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Cam Newton might not be the most popular name in Arizona this week after the Panthers QB shredded the Cardinals defense, but there was a time when Cam almost made football fans in the desert smile.

There's been a ton of near misses in Arizona recruiting history as there is at every program around the country.You could argue missing out on Cam Newton is the biggest or better, most fun "what if" conversation. What if Cam came to Zona? Could he have saved Mike Stoops job? Would Nick Foles ever transform into the guy who became wildly successful with the Eagles. 

All of these questions have been answered already because Newton went to Auburn and won a national championship, but with the help of UA equipment manager Wendell Neal, we relive Newton's recruiting trip to Tucson back in 2009.
