QB Anu Solomon Announces That He Will Transfer From Arizona For Final Season

Anu Solomon had two very productive seasons as Arizona's starting quarterback in 2014 and 2015. After an injury-plagued 2016, Solomon will graduate, and transfer for his final year.

Solomon made the decision official this afternoon, posting a lengthy note to Instagram to make the announcement.

As a redshirt freshman in 2014, Solomon, a Hawaii native, threw for 3,793 yards, 28 touchdowns, and nine interceptions, completing 58-percent of his throws for seven yards per attempt. The Wildcats went 10-4, won the Pac-12 South, and played in the Fiesta Bowl, where they lost to Boise State. In 2015, Solomon's yards per attempt went up significantly, to 8.1, and he threw for 2,668 yards, 20 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He missed two games that season. Injuries cost him all but five games this fall, and he was limited in many of his late season appearances.

Assuming he bounces back from his injuries, Solomon could be a coveted, proven starting quarterback on the transfer market this off-season.
