The inevitable has finally become reality.
Quarterback Kevin Doyle Jr. has put his name into the NCAA transfer portal, putting an end to his 3-year Arizona Wildcats career without every playing a snap.
Thank you @CoachJeddFisch for the last few months. I learned a lot from my time at Arizona. I wish them the best. Having said that, I am now officially in the transfer portal as a graduate transfer and have 3 years left of eligibility.— Kevin Doyle Jr (@Kevin_Doyle_13) April 27, 2021
A 3-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting class, Doyle signed with Arizona over Michigan after being one of the first players recruited by Kevin Sumlin and Noel Mazzone. He redshirted in 2018 behind Khalil Tate, Rhett Rodriguez and Jamarye Joiner, then was slowed by an injury during training camp in 2019 and didn’t see action.
Doyle opted out of the 2020 season but returned to the team for spring practice under new coach Jedd Fisch but he was never higher than third on the spring depth chart.
While Arizona had several players enter the portal after the 2020 season ended, Doyle is the first to depart since spring ball ended Saturday.
