The NCAA transfer portal now has enough Arizona Wildcats players in it to form its own entryway.

Redshirt junior wide receiver Drew Dixon announced Thursday he was transferring for his final two seasons of eligibility, making him the 11th player to leave the program since November.

Dixon, a Tucson native who starred as a quarterback and receiver at Sabino High School, appeared in only two games for Arizona in 2020. He had three catches for 46, all coming in the Nov. 28 loss at UCLA, but then opted out for the remainder of the season.

In 12 career games, Dixon had 17 catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns.

Dixon is the fifth wide receiver to leave the program in the past month, joining redshirt junior Stanley Berryhill III, redshirt sophomore Jamarye Joiner, sophomore Boobie Curry and true freshman Ma’jon Wright. Berryhill has since committed to Ball State for 2021.

Arizona’s other departures include quarterbacks Grant Gunnell and Rhett Rodriguez, with Gunnell committing to Memphis, offensive linemen Robert Congel and Jamari Williams, and defensive backs Khary Crump and Edric Whitley. Crump and Whitley, both true freshmen, never played for the Wildcats.
