What’s better than one Schooler brother on the Arizona Wildcats? How about two?
Brenden Schooler, a wide receiver from Oregon, announced Saturday he was transferring to Arizona for his final season. As a graduate transfer, he is eligible to play immediately.

Schooler, the older brother of UA linebacker Colin Schooler, appeared in two games for the Ducks this season before suffering a foot injury. He announced his transfer from Oregon in October, retaining his final year of eligibility.
After playing 2016 as a defensive back, when he had 74 tackles and four interceptions as a true freshman, Schooler switched to receiver and caught 43 passes for 521 yards and four touchdowns.
The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Schooler joins a receiving corps that is slated to return seven of its nine top pass-catchers from 2019. He counts as the 13th member of Arizona’s 2020 recruiting class, a group that coach Kevin Sumlin said Friday was only about half-finished in being assembled.
