  01/26/21 - Treshaun HaywardSr/2022, Arizona, 6-0, 225 (DS#29 OLB) + More +

  The Arizona Wildcats have secured another big-time transfer at a position of need. Western Michigan linebacker Treshaun Hayward - the 2019 Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year - is transferring to Arizona, he tweeted Monday. Hayward, who's listed at 6-1, 235 pounds, was the MAC Defensive Player of the Year and a Sporting News second-team All-American in the last full season played by Western Michigan. He compiled 142 tackles, including 10.5 stops for losses, for the Broncos that season. This past season, Hayward accumulated 50 tackles, including 3.5 TFLs, in five games. For his career, Hayward has 229 stops, including 16 TFLs, in 39 appearances. - Arizona Star News

  01/25/21 - Gunner CruzrFr/2024, Arizona, 6-5, 217 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Gunner Cruz has taken his last snaps in a Washington State uniform, but the Cougars will probably cross paths with the quarterback at some point in the next few years. One day after it was learned Cruz entered the NCAA transfer portal, the big-armed redshirt freshman from Queen Creek, Arizona, announced on Twitter he'll be transferring within the Pac-12 Conference to the University of Arizona. Cruz and fellow underclassman Cammon Cooper lost out on a position battle to true freshman Jayden de Laura in fall camp and Cruz got his only snaps of the season in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss at USC. - Spokesman-Review

  01/16/21 - Mykee IrvingrSo/2023, Arizona, 6-2, 320 (DS#999 DT) + More +

  Arizona defensive tackle Mykee Irving has put his name in the NCAA transfer portal. Irving (6-3, 320) was a redshirt sophomore in 2020. He appeared in 11 games in three seasons with the Wildcats, accumulating five tackles. Irving was a three-star prospect in the class of 2018 out of Calabasas, California. He has graduated, so he'll be immediately eligible at another school, no matter the NCAA's decision about one-time transfers. - Arizona Star News

  Yet another Arizona wide receiver has run a reverse. Stanley Berryhill III, the Wildcats' leading pass catcher in 2020, announced Tuesday that he's returning to the UA. Berryhill took it a step further than the others, committing to Ball State last month before changing his mind. "The timing of the whole situation wasn't right," Berryhill told KVOA in an interview that aired Monday night. As a redshirt junior last season, Berryhill led the Wildcats with 23 catches for 227 yards and three touchdowns in five games. For his career, Berryhill has 56 catches for 733 yards and eight scores in 20 contests. - Arizona Star News

  Arizona announced that it has signed four transfers, clearing the way for those players to enroll in classes and participate in spring practice. The four players verbally committed to the Wildcats earlier this month. They are: running back Drake Anderson, safety Gunner Maldonado, defensive end Jason Harris and cornerback Isaiah Rutherford. Anderson and Maldonado transferred from Northwestern. Both attended Chandler High School. Anderson was a redshirt sophomore in 2020. Maldonado was a freshman. - Arizona Star News

  01/08/21 - Jason HarrisFr/2024, Arizona, 6-6, 240 (DS#999 OLB) + More +

  It will be a family reunion in Tucson after defensive end Jason Harris announced Wednesday evening on social media that he has committed to playing football at the University of Arizona. Jason recently entered the NCAA transfer portal after one season at Colorado. The 6-foot-7 Harris, who was an All-American last year at Gilbert Higley, was recruited by Arizona out of high school before choosing the Buffaloes. Jalen Harris plays defensive end and linebacker for the Wildcats. The brothers last played together at Mesa Desert Ridge when Jason was a freshman starting at defensive end on varsity. Jason transferred to Higley the following year. Their father Sean was an All-American linebacker for the Wildcats during the Dick Tomey coaching era. - Arizona Republic

  01/08/21 - Isaiah RutherfordrFr/2024, Arizona, 6-0, 188 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  The transfers continue to buy into Jedd Fisch and the Arizona Wildcats. The latest addition to new defensive coordinator Don Brown's secondary could be the biggest - and most-needed - one, after four-star cornerback and Notre Dame transfer Isaiah Rutherford committed to the UA on Twitter Thursday night. The 6-foot, 192-pound Rutherford, who played at Jesuit High School in the Sacramento area, signed with the Fighting Irish over Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Oregon, USC and Tennessee, among others, in 2019. After two seasons at Notre Dame, only appearing in one game, Rutherford transferred to the UA, becoming the latest pickup for the Wildcats through the transfer portal, which Fisch said would utilize similarly to "free agency." - Arizona Star News

  Amid a flurry of significant additions, the Arizona Wildcat suffered a big loss Thursday. Defensive tackle Roy Lopez, who joined the UA program last year as a graduate transfer, announced he is entering the NFL draft. Lopez, an Arizona native who played his first four seasons at New Mexico State, recorded 18 tackles, including four stops for losses, in five games for the Wildcats. - Nolan Group Media

  Jamarye Joiner is staying after all. After meeting with Arizona head coach Jedd Fisch and wide receivers coach Kevin Cummings between Tuesday and Wednesday, the UA redshirt sophomore, who left the program after Kevin Sumlin's dismissal, announced that he will return to the Wildcats for the 2021 season. Joiner, a 6-1, 214-pound Tucson native and Cienega High School product, tweeted the news Thursday morning. And he wasn't the only one. Receiver Ma'jon Wright, perhaps the Wildcats' top freshman in 2020, also announced he will be returning to the program. Like Joiner, Wright had put his name in the NCAA transfer portal last month. - Arizona Star News

  Senior defensive tackle Aaron Blackwell will return to Arizona for the 2021 season. Blackwell joined the Wildcats as a graduate transfer from New Mexico last year. He is taking advantage of the NCAA ruling that grants all players an extra year of eligibility because of the coronavirus pandemic. The 6-foot-2-inch, 293-pound Blackwell was credited with six tackles, including two stops for losses, in five games. - Arizona Star News

  Senior defensive tackle Aaron Blackwell will return to Arizona for the 2021 season. Blackwell joined the Wildcats as a graduate transfer last year from New Mexico. He is taking advantage of the NCAA ruling that grants all players an extra year of eligibility because of the coronavirus pandemic. Blackwell (6-2, 293) was credited with six tackles, including two stops for losses, in five games. On Tuesday, two other veteran defensive linemen, Trevon Mason and JB Brown, confirmed that they also will be returning for the '21 season. The Star has learned that four other players whose status was up in the air will be coming back for 2021: center Josh McCauley, tight end Bryce Wolma, safety Christian Young and defensive lineman Jalen Cochran. - Arizona Star News

  Three veteran players whose status for 2021 was uncertain confirmed to the Star that they're returning to the team. Two are defensive linemen: JB Brown and Trevon Mason. The other is a wide receiver: Thomas Reid III. All three were - or in the case of Brown, would have been - seniors this past season and are taking advantage of the NCAA granting all players who participated in the shortened '20 campaign an extra year of eligibility. - Arizona Star News

  New University of Arizona football coach Jedd Fisch hasn't taken long to score big in recruiting former Chandler High School standouts. The same day safety Gunner Maldonado announced he has committed to Arizona, running back Drake Anderson opted to transfer schools and play for the Arizona Wildcats. In the 2019 season at Northwestern, Anderson led the team in rushing with 634 yards on 154 carries. He had 141 yards on 26 carries against UNLV and 91 yards on 17 carries against Michigan State. This past season, he ran for 256 yards on 62 carries. Anderson was a redshirt sophomore this past season. - Arizona Republic

  01/06/21 - JB BrownrSr/2022, Arizona, 6-3, 267 (DS#75 DE) + More +

  Arizona defensive lineman JB Brown, who opted out of the 2020 football season because of COVID-19 concerns, will return to the Wildcats in '21, he told the Star Tuesday morning. The 6-foot-3-inch, 267-pound Los Angeles-area native, initially recruited by the Rich Rodriguez regime out of Long Beach Poly High School as an outside linebacker, has played on Arizona's defensive line since the 2017 season. In two seasons under Kevin Sumlin, Brown played in all 24 games, including 14 starts, at defensive end and, in certain stunts, defensive tackle. Brown was one of two UA defensive lineman to announce on Tuesday his plan to play for Arizona in '21. The 6-5, 305-pound Trevon Mason is the other. - Arizona Star News

  Monday was a productive day for the Arizona Wildcats football program. Just hours after the UA announced the finishing touches to Jedd Fisch's offensive staff, Arizona's new head coach landed his first recruit, when former Northwestern safety and Chandler High School product Gunner Maldonado posted on Twitter his decision to join the Wildcats. The 6-foot, 180-pound Maldonado, rated as a three-star safety in the 2020 recruiting cycle, was recruited by Arizona during the Kevin Sumlin era but chose Chicago's Wildcats over UA, Arizona State, Iowa State, Indiana and Memphis, among others. Maldonado also had offers from BYU, Tulane, Washington State and Northern Arizona after he entered the NCAA transfer portal. - Arizona Star News
