TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona football concluded its 19th practice of fall camp at Kindall Field/Sancet Stadium on Wednesday night. The Cats were in full pads for a two-hour practice on the grass fields. Below are head coach Rich Rodriguez’s comments following practice:
On the linebackers:
“We’re deeper just because of the freshman class. Scooby Wright, Derrick Turituri, DeAndre’ Miller and Jake Matthews have given us some depth there that we didn’t have last year.”
On how Trevor Ermisch and Terris Jones can help:
“Trevor Ermisch knows all of the positions on offense, that’s why he has been valuable for us. He’s been on special teams, as well. In fact, Trevor just got awarded a scholarship for this year today. He’s happy and I was really happy for him. Terris Jones was awarded one, as well. Terris is a guy that we think can really help on special teams. He can help on offense, too. He’s a tough guy and a good competitor so he has a chance to play a lot of football this year for us.”
On the quarterback battle:
“The freshmen aren’t ready to play, that part I know. B.J. (Denker) has gotten better. (Jesse) Scroggins has been a little sick so that’s given the other guys more opportunities, like Javelle Allen. It’s open but I’ve been pleased with the way B.J. has progressed and Javelle has progressed over the past couple days. They are getting better. B.J. has been ahead since day one, just because of his experience. But I’ve challenged him more and he has responded to the challenge, more so in the last few days than before. He’s playing better and it’s good, it’s good for him.”
