Cats continue "uneven" start to Fall Camp

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Day 2 of Arizona Wildcats Football Camp was much like Day 1.

Head coach Rich Rodriguez was not overly impressed with the play of his quarterbacks and one is still not on the field.

Junior transfer Jesse Scroggins was limited for a 2nd straight day due to concussion symptoms. Not practicing certainly is not helping his chance to win the starting job.

Rodriguez again categorized the practice as uneven.

The wide receiver position has taken another blow as sophomore David Richards is out for at least two weeks with a foot injury.

Rodriguez indicated the program could know more about the possible eligibility of transfer receiver Davonte Neal as soon as Tuesday.

Neal has practiced well in his first two days for Arizona.

The good news is several key players from last season are now on scholarship.

Linebacker Sir Thomas Jackson, defensive tackle Tevin Hood, and wide receiver Johnny Jackson are now all former walk ons.

Arizona has finished last in the Pac-12 the last two seasons in sacks. Kyle Kelley (#99) could be the answer to the defenses prayers.

The redshirt freshman had 22 sacks as a senior in high school and could possibly give the Wildcats the consistent edge pressure they have not had since the departure of Rickey Elmore and Brooks Reed after the 2010 season.

The Wildcats will continue Fall Camp with a practice at 6 p.m. on Monday night.
