Two weeks after withdrawing from the transfer portal, Ma’jon Wright is testing the waters again. According to Rivals, the freshman wideout re-entered his name in the portal on Wednesday.

Getting Wright back in the fold was a big recruiting win for new head coach Jedd Fisch, but now it seems unlikely he will be back with the Wildcats.

That is a tough loss considering Wright was one of the few bright spots for Arizona in 2020. The former three-star recruit out of Florida was second on the team in receptions (15) and receiving yards (176). He also had a touchdown catch and started two of UA’s final three games.

If there is any good news this time it’s that Arizona is much more prepared to replace Wright if he does leave. The new coaching staff was able to convince fellow wideouts Jamarye Joiner, Boobie Curry and Stanley Berryhill III to withdraw from the transfer portal and return to the team.

That means Arizona will return five of its six receivers regardless of what Wright decides. The group just won’t have as much upside.
