Zack Blatt from the AZ daily star is reporting via Twitter that he is coming back to AZ. He was supposed to transfer to Miami of Ohio. Big get gives us some depth on the defensive side of the ball.

Nice!  I found the story below

Arizona's pass rush was dealt a blow when redshirt freshman Jalen Cochran announced his intention to transfer from UA to Miami (Ohio) in May.

More than a month later, it appears Cochran has changed his mind the Plymouth, Michigan native announced on Twitter that he plans to return and play for the Wildcats after all.


"After talking (it) over with my coaches and my family, I feel that this is the best decision for me," Cochran wrote in a message posted to his private Twitter account. "I can't wait to get back and work with my team. Thank you to the coaching staff for allowing me to come back."

Cochran came to Arizona as one of the most highly-regarded recruits in its 2016 recruiting class, a three-star defensive end with offers from Michigan State. He redshirted his freshman season and then last month planned to move back to be closer to his family in Michigan with a transfer to Miami (Ohio).


With the Wildcats, Cochran listed at 6-3 and 240 pounds had been getting groomed to play in the "stud" linebacker role, which is a hybrid of a defensive end and outside linebacker.

This is a huge get for our team immediately! Kid has real talent and should contribute in the rotation this year as a RS Freshman.
Thanks for posting this as I was in a no reception area and will likely be in a no reception area all weekend. I'll update the countdown as I can.
