 #5 Antoine Cason 6'1 190 Cornerback Fr.


        Cason comes from Los Alamitos High school in California. He made second team All CIF-Southern Section, and was good enough to be a PrepStar All America selection as a Top 300 national recruit. He also earned SuperPrep All-Farwest honors as a Top 100 California prospect. Had 41 tackles, four interceptions, and two fumble recoveries in 2003 for Los Alamitos. He received numerous honors his junior year and won team “Hit of the Year" in 2002. Cason is excited about working with Coach Mark Stoops and he might get playing time right away.


#4 B.J. Dennard 6’1 175 Cornerback Fr.


        Dennard comes from Brophy Prep in Phoenix. He was recruited by many schools as Wide Receiver (50 Rec. 800 Yds. & 8 TDs 2004). Dennard has two family members (Father & Cousin) that played wide receiver at Arizona State. He received SuperPrep All-Farwest honors as the #12 prospect in Arizona. Dennard ran track and kept in shape all summer so he is ready to make an immediate. Ultimately Dennards decision to come to Arizona was influenced by Head Coach Mike Stoops and his history for making secondary players careers flourish. He too might be in the mix at cornerback this fall.


#31 Michael Klyce 6'2 190 Safety Fr.


          Klyce of Los Angeles’ Locke High School made SuperPrep All-Farwest honors as California’s Top 120 prospect. Klyce committed to the Wildcats back in November. Klyce is a versatile athlete that played many positions in high school (QB, RB, LB, SS). He had 95 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 3 sacks in 2003 as senior.  In track Klyce ran a 22.5 in the 200M and 49.0 in the 400M. Klyce looks to provide depth behind starters Darrell Brooks and Lamon Means this season.


#18 Dramayne McElroy 5'10 170  Cornerback Jr.


            McElroy was a late spring addition to the recruiting class transferring from Chaffey College. McElroy could emerge as the fastest player on the team, he has been electronically timed in the 40 at sub-4.3 speed. The first game of the 2003 season against Cerritos College McElroy returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown . The coaches will give McElroy a hard look this fall to see if he can compete for playing time at cornerback.



#8 Dominic Patrick 6'2 200 Safety Fr.


        Patrick is one of seven players from Texas coming to play for the Wildcats this season. A Lone Star recruiting Top 10 safety selection and All-Southweset honors. Had 90 tackles and 5 interceptions in 2003, returning one for a touchdown. Earned a second-team All-District as a Junior and team linebacker MVP as a Sophomore. Patrick made academic achievements as well in high school as he was an Honor Roll student. Patrick will also watch Lamon Means, Darrell Brooks and Tony Wingate play this season but be on the lookout for Patrick in the future as he has a knack for making plays.


#21 Kiel McDonald 5’10 190 Cornerback Jr.


        McDonald is a mid-year transfer from Sacramento City College. He has a jump start on the newcomers and made strides this spring becoming the starting cornerback on the strong side. McDonald made All-NorCal Conference honorable mention in 2003, was a Max Emfinger national top 300 JUCO selection and Top-20 cornerback selection. McDonald went to Thomas B. Doherty in Colorado Sprints, Colorado. He ran a 10.6 in the 100M in high school as a senior and participated in hockey, baseball and track. Look out for the athletic cornerback to be in a lot of action this fall for the Wildcats.
