Spring Practice Notes
Arizona began its 2009 spring practice last week. WildcatScoop.com has some news and notes from practice:
Apparently Xavier Smith, Terry Longbons, Terrell Reese, Hans Philipp and Glyndon Bolasky have all left the team. Smith and Longbons graduated, Bolasky was injured, Reese will transfer and there' no word on why Philipp left.
Wide receivers coach Michael Smith left the program for Kansas State. He'll be replaced by Memphis coach Garret Chachere, who previously coached with Sonny Dykes.
Matt Scott and Nick Foles are neck and neck for the starting quarterback job, but Scott may be playing a little better in practice.
Adam Grant is healthy and has solidified his spot as the starting right tackle.
Kaniela Tuipulotu has been limited in practice and apparently he might redshirt this year.
Robert Golden has been moved to strong safety, where he is expected to start in 2009.
Marcus Benjamin and Trevin Wade are battling for the starting cornerback job, opposite Devin Ross. Right now, Wade is the favorite to win the job.
Alex Zendejas is looking good as Jason Bondzio's replacement.
Lolomana Mikaele and Mike Turner are back from their 2008 suspensions.
