The Arizona Wildcats are coming off a second straight 8-5 season that ended with a bowl victory. That's not earth-shattering for many schools, but it's a sign of consistency for the program in its first two seasons under Rich Rodriguez.
The 2014 season will bring massive change for the Wildcats due to significant losses from the 2013 squad.
Gone is record-breaking running back Ka'Deem Carey, who announced his intention to go pro on Monday. Arizona will also lose quarterback B.J. Denker, who came on strong toward the end of the season to become one of the country's top dual-threat passers. The Wildcats will also lose two-thirds of their linebackers and have smaller pieces to fill at various other positions.
Many of these voids will need to be addressed via existing players, though the 2014 recruiting class could provide a great source of reinforcements as well. Arizona has seven signees already enrolled in school, while 21 others are committed to join the program.
With national signing day a mere three weeks away, we will look at any last-minute wishes the Wildcats have for recruiting.
