The Arizona Wildcats have another roster spot to fill after safety Troy Young announced Friday he was putting his name into the NCAA transfer portal

Young appeared in 29 games for Arizona over the past three seasons, starting once each in 2017 and 2018. Last season he only played in four games, registering five tackles, meaning he'd be eligible for a redshirt and would have two years of eligibility remaining.

That makes seven players who have transferred from Arizona since last summer, two in the past week. Linebacker Xavier Bell entered the transfer portal on Tuesday.

The others to leave are receiver Thomas Marcus, tight end Jake Peters, linebacker Dayven Coleman and defensive backs Maurice Gaines and Chacho Ulloa.

Arizona has also added two transfers this offseason in receiver Brenden Schooler (Oregon) and defensive tackle Aaron Blackwell (New Mexico).
