The simplest solution, if Arizona doesn't have Ka'Deem Carey at its disposal, is to convert into more of a pass-first team.
Arizona threw less than 35 percent of the time in 2013, though that pass/run breakdown was slightly less disparate when you consider many run plays were the results of sacks or quarterback scrambles on broken plays.
How much the Wildcats would take to the air would likely depend on which quarterback replaces senior B.J. Denker as the starter. The list includes transfers, redshirting players and incoming recruits, and they vary in their skills and abilities.
One thing is for certain, though: if Arizona were to become a pass-heavy team it has a wealth of talented receivers at its disposal. In addition to young standouts Trey Griffey, Garic Wharton and Nate Phillips (who on Monday was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers' Association of America) the Wildcats will have transfers DaVonte' Neal (Notre Dame) and Cayleb Jones (Texas), while 2012 leading receiver Austin Hill will be back after missing this past season because of a knee injury.
