Grant Gunnell was supposed to be the recruit that would justify Arizona hiring Kevin Sumlin. Instead he’s looking for a third college team in four years. The former Wildcats quarterback, who transferred to Memphis shortly after Sumlin was fired in late 2020, has re-entered the NCAA transfer portal. Gunnell never saw the field for the Tigers, suffering a season-ending injury last August. Because he’s already transferred once, and was immediately eligible, he’d have to sit out a season unless he received a waiver. With Arizona, Gunnell started seven games in 2019-20, splitting the starting job with Khalil Tate as a true freshman and then starting four of five contests in the COVID-shortened 2020 season. He threw for 352 yards and a touchdown on 29-of-44 in his collegiate debut, a win over UCLA in Sept. 2019 that earned him Pac-12 Player of the Week honors. read more: https://www.azdesertswarm.com/2022/4/30/23049946/arizona-wildcats-grant-gunnell-memphis-tigers-ncaa-transfer-portal-injury-sumlin-khalil-tate-fisch
Arizona has reached an agreement to hire Kevin Sumlin as coach, as first reported by SiriusXM and confirmed by ESPN. Sumlin was 51-26 in six seasons at Texas A&M. Before coaching the Aggies, Sumlin was 36-17 in four seasons at Houston, including a 13-1 record in 2011.

Zach Peters, the former Plano Prestonwood Christian and Kansas forward who visited UNT this month, has passed on an offer to play for the Mean Green. Peters will instead head to Arizona. I talked to a source close to the situation earlier today who said it was likely down to UNT and Arizona. Oklahoma was likely out of the picture at that point. Peters hasn’t said much of anything throughout the process. He declined comment when I got in touch with him after he visited UNT. The Peters-UNT match made a ton of sense. Peters is 6-foot-9 and is the type of rebounder and defender UNT needs with Tony Mitchell heading to the NBA. And UNT seemed like the perfect place for Peters to start over after it didn’t work out at Kansas, due largely to a series of injuries he suffered after high school.
