The NFL has released its official invite list for the 2020 scouting combine, and the only member of the Arizona Wildcats to receive a summons is the one we already knew about.

Running back J.J. Taylor will be Arizona’s lone participant out of 337 combine invitees, it was announced Friday. Taylor’s invitation was originally reported on Monday.

The 5-foot-6 Taylor left Arizona after his redshirt junior season, during which he ran for 721 yards and five touchdowns while also catching 32 passes for 289 yards. In his career he ran for 3,263 yards (which was fifth-best in school history) and 18 scores, had 62 receptions for 482 yards and two TDs and returned 41 kicks or punts for 988 yards. His 4,733 all-purpose yards ranked seventh in school history.

Among those from Arizona who were not extended an invite were quarterback Khalil Tate, wide receiver Cedric Peterson, offensive lineman Cody Creason, defensive lineman Finton Connolly and cornerbacks Lorenzo Burns and Jace Whittaker.

Arizona has the fewest invitees of any Pac-12 school. The league is sending 47 players, eight more than a year ago.

The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is scheduled for Feb. 24-March 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
