Arizona will have a couple of new snappers this season.
Chase Gorham, who handled the long-snapping last year as a true freshman for the Wildcats, left the team because of personal reasons, coach Mike Stoops said after Monday morning’s practice. Stoops said he was unsure if Gorham would return at some point.
Gorham, from Scottsdale Chaparral High School, was the first player to commit to Arizona in the Class of 2010. He could take his redshirt this season and return to active duty in 2012.
In the meantime, his departure leaves Arizona with a couple of guys who have been in the program for a while and who, if they do their jobs well, you’ll never hear from again.
