UCLA coach Jim Mora spent more than 20 seasons in the NFL as a defensive assistant . He used to coach Michael Vick. Mora knows what he and the Bruins are up against Saturday.

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Brandon Dawkins has rushed for 391 yards and seven touchdowns in three starts. His average of 130.33 rushing yards per game ranks second among Div. I FBS quarterbacks behind Louisville\u2019s Lamar Jackson, the current front-runner for the Heisman Trophy.

\u201cHe puts huge stress on a defense,\u201d Mora said of Dawkins. \u201cHe\u2019s lightning fast, he\u2019s quick, he\u2019s decisive, he can break arm tackles. It\u2019s almost like they\u2019re in the \u2018Wildcat\u2019 every single play with a guy that can throw the ball.\u201d

Dawkins has made strides as a passer since taking over for the injured Anu Solomon in Week 2. Dawkins has completed 61.7 percent of his throws with three touchdowns and one interception.

But it\u2019s his running ability \u2014 his long, effortless stride \u2014 that literally separates him from others. He possesses all the attributes to become the next great dual-threat quarterback under Rich Rodriguez. Pat White and Denard Robinson had 1,000-plus-yard seasons in Rodriguez\u2019s system at West Virginia and Michigan, respectively.

Dawkins has a different running style, but he is producing similar results. At his current pace, the redshirt sophomore would rush for more than 1,400 yards.

\u201cThey\u2019re all kind of unique,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cPat White was just take one step and boy, he\u2019s full speed. Denard Robinson was a freak. (Before White) we had Rasheed Marshall, who\u2019s probably most similar to Brandon. Kind of a longer strider, but was faster than you think.

\u201cBrandon is faster than you think. I don\u2019t know what his 40 time is, but once he gets going, he\u2019s such a competitive runner, he can pull away from people.\u201d

You don\u2019t have to tell the Washington Huskies that. Dawkins rushed for a career-high 176 yards against UW, including a 79-yard touchdown. The TD marked the longest run by a quarterback this season and the longest by an Arizona QB since at least 1972.

\u201cAnytime you have a running quarterback like that, it is really hard and frustrating,\u201d Washington coach Chris Petersen said after the Huskies\u2019 35-28 overtime victory over the Wildcats. \u201cThe three guys that we played up to this point don\u2019t run like he runs. \u2026 When a guy is that fast and you miss him, he makes you pay.\u201d

Washington\u2019s defense is loaded with pro prospects. After shaking linebacker Psalm Wooching in the backfield, Dawkins outran all of them down the right sideline. He covered the final 40 yards in less than 4.5 seconds.

\u201cHe makes it really tough,\u201d Mora said. \u201cThe run that he had against the University of Washington, the best defense in this conference, arguably, or at least it was \u2026 was just spectacular. The guy, he\u2019s big-time.\u201d

Dawkins patterns himself after two of the greatest dual-threat QBs in history: Randall Cunningham and Cam Newton. Dawkins met Cunningham at a football camp and became friends with his son, also named Randall, who is a high jumper at USC. (The younger Cunningham played quarterback at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, where he was a teammate of Solomon\u2019s.)

Like Cunningham and Newton, Dawkins (6-3, 210) is both big and fast. Because of his size and gait, he doesn\u2019t look as speedy as smaller players such as White or Robinson.

But whatever he might lack in timed speed, Dawkins makes up for in determination. He\u2019s always thinking about the end zone. Dawkins and White are the only Rodriguez-coached quarterbacks to score multiple rushing touchdowns in three straight games.

\u201cIt\u2019s so hard to test how somebody really runs,\u201d Dawkins said. \u201cWhen the pressure\u2019s on and somebody\u2019s chasing after you, I feel like something in your body kicks in where you run a lot faster. When I had those guys chasing after me, I felt like I was just floating down the field, just rolling.\u201d

New RB option

The Wildcats are turning to a veteran receiver to provide reinforcements for their depleted tailback corps.

Senior Samajie Grant is taking some reps at running back this week. Grant played the position at Colony High School in Ontario, California, rushing for 1,495 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior in 2012.

Grant has started 33 games at receiver for Arizona. He has 134 career receptions, including 11 this season. He has seven career rushes for 30 yards.

\u201cHe\u2019s just an explosive player,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cI\u2019d like to get him some more touches anyway because he can do some things with the ball.\u201d

Rodriguez and his staff have been forced to consider contingencies after ankle injuries to Nick Wilson and J.J. Taylor and the dismissal of Orlando Bradford.

Taylor probably will be out for the rest of the season after breaking his left ankle last week. Wilson\u2019s status for UCLA is unknown. If he can\u2019t play, Arizona likely will use some combination of Zach Green, Tyrell Johnson, walk-on Branden Leon and Grant.

Can Grant get up to speed by Saturday at a position he hasn\u2019t played in several years?

\u201cSamajie can do a little bit of everything,\u201d running backs coach Calvin Magee said. \u201cHe\u2019s a quick study. So he\u2019ll pick it up.\u201d

Extra points

\u2022 Receiver Shawn Poindexter injured his right foot or ankle against Washington after catching three passes for 29 yards in the first quarter. His status for this week\u2019s game is unclear.

\u2022 Linebacker DeAndre\u2019 Miller (ankle) had a green jersey Tuesday, possibly indicating limited practice participation. That could be a good sign after Miller missed last week\u2019s game.

\u2022 Despite injuries piling up again, Rodriguez doesn\u2019t plan to make any changes to Arizona\u2019s training or practice regimens. \u201cI have 100 percent confidence in our training methods,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s just bad luck.\u201d

Arizona offensive lineman Zach Hemmila\u2019s death last month resulted from the combined toxic effects of two prescription drugs, according to an autopsy report issued by the Pima County Sheriff\u2019s Office on Tuesday.

The drugs found in Hemmila\u2019s system and cited as the cause of his death were oxymorphone, an opiate painkiller, and alprazolam, an anxiety medication.

Hemmila, 22, died in his sleep on Aug. 7 or 8. His death was ruled an accident.

\u201cSeveral wads\u201d of chewing tobacco were found in Hemmila\u2019s mouth, according to the autopsy report. No intact pills were discovered in his gastrointestinal system. His lungs were \u201cmarkedly congested,\u201d per the report, which is dated Aug. 8.

Messages left with Dr. Gregory Hess, the Chief Medical Examiner of Pima County, were not returned.

Hemmila, a redshirt senior from Chandler, was set to be the Wildcats\u2019 starting center this season. The team is honoring him throughout the season with helmet stickers and patches on coaches\u2019 hats.

\u201cArizona Athletics continues to mourn the passing of Zach Hemmila,\u201d the UA said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon. \u201cWe will honor the family\u2019s request for privacy and support them in any way we can.\u201d

The brand name for oxymorphone is Opana. Hemmila had a concentration of 15.3 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) in his system, according to the autopsy report. The recommended therapeutic range is 1-5 ng/ml, the autopsy report stated.

According to drugs.com, an independent medical information website, therapeutic range refers to the dosage \u201cusually expected to achieve desired therapeutic effects. Some patients require doses (or concentrations) above or below this range. Some patients will experience drug toxicity within this range.\u201d

Hemmila had 11.8 ng/ml of alprazolam in his system, near the bottom of the therapeutic range (11-40), the autopsy stated. The brand name for alprazolam is Xanax. Hemmila also had citalopram, an anti-depressant, in his system, according to the report. The concentration of citalopram was 31.3 ng/ml, also well within the therapeutic range (10-120), the report stated. The brand name for citalopram is Celexa.

On Aug. 31, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it would require warning labels for nearly 400 products detailing the serious risks associated with combining certain opioid medications and depressant drugs called benzodiazepines. The risks include extreme sleepiness, respiratory depression, coma and death. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine.

The Arizona Wildcats will have a new look in more ways than one during the 2016-17 season.

Already working six new players and replacing three starters, the Wildcats are scheduled to wear all-new Nike uniforms this season, in the standard white (home), blue (road), and red (road) sets.

While images of the new look are not available yet, UA basketball operations director Ryan Reynolds said they will feature the cut -- though not necessarily the design -- of the USA Basketball uniforms worn in Rio.\u00a0

The USA Rio 2016 uniforms featured a V-like cut along the neckline, as well as a small V-shaped cut on the side of the shorts. Nike is redesigning several college teams with the look this season.

Reynolds said the new UA uniforms won't have stripes but will still have the traditional \"CATS\" lettering on the shorts.

Arizona last updated its uniforms shortly before the 2014-15 season with uniforms that incorporated some throwback features and, earlier, wore these starting in the middle of the 2010-11 season. Sean Miller's first UA team wore a plainer uniform in 2009-10.

Of course, there have also been several alternative and special occasion uniforms, too -- including the grey \"Zona\" ones of 2011-12\u00a0and the Hyper Elite Disruption reds they wore at Colorado last season. Reynolds said there could be two alternate uniforms this season.

The Wildcats hope to debut the uniforms during their annual preseason media day Thursday but Reynolds said they aren't sure if they will arrive in time.

Quick hitters from the Arizona Wildcats\u2019 post-practice media availability Tuesday morning:

* UA coach Rich Rodriguez said senior receiver Samajie Grant is getting some reps at running back this week. Arizona is banged up at that position with J.J. Taylor likely out for the season and Nick Wilson\u2019s status uncertain for UCLA because of ankle injuries.

*\u00a0Grant played tailback in high school. \u201cHe\u2019s just an explosive player,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cI\u2019d like to get him some more touches anyway because he can do some things with the ball.\"

*\u00a0Another Arizona RB option: walk-on Branden Leon. Said Rodriguez: \"He\u2019s a tough guy. He runs hard. He\u2019s got some good skills. He\u2019s really worked hard getting bigger, stronger and faster.\"

*\u00a0Receiver Shawn Poindexter was on crutches with a boot on his right foot as he made his way from the practice field to the locker room. He got hurt against Washington after catching three passes for 29 yards in the first quarter.

*\u00a0Linebacker DeAndre\u2019 Miller (ankle) had a green jersey on, indicating limited practice participation. That could be a good sign after Miller missed last week\u2019s game.

*\u00a0Despite injuries piling up again, Rodriguez doesn't plan to make any changes to Arizona\u2019s training or practice regimens. \"I have 100 percent confidence in our training methods,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s just bad luck.\u201d

*\u00a0Rodriguez comparing UCLA's defense to Washington's: \"Very similar. They might be a little faster on the edge. Their secondary is outstanding.\"

*\u00a0Rodriguez on some of his past running QBs: \"Pat White was just take one step and boy, he\u2019s full speed. Denard Robinson was a freak.\" Brandon Dawkins looks like the next great running quarterback under Rodriguez, and I\u2019ll have more on Dawkins\u2019 running ability later today.

*\u00a0Rodriguez on Dawkins' confidence/personality: \"He\u2019s a Snapchat/Instagram king. I\u2019m sure he gets a lot of likes.\"

The Arizona Wildcats had big plans for diminutive tailback J.J. Taylor.

The 5-foot-6, 170-pound freshman already showed he could be an extremely effective every-down back, subbing for injured starter Nick Wilson. With both backs healthy, Rich Rodriguez intended to utilize them in two-tailback sets.

Now that Taylor is likely out for the season because of a broken left ankle, those plans have changed. And Arizona is scrambling to piece together a viable corps of running backs.

The situation is eerily reminiscent of what happened last season at middle linebacker, where one Wildcat after another went down.

\u201cInjuries happen,\u201d Rodriguez said Monday. \u201cYou don\u2019t want it to all hit the same position.\u201d

The first running back to get hurt was fullback Jamardre Cobb, who injured his knee in Week 2 against Grambling State. Four days later, tailback Orlando Bradford \u2014 listed as a co-starter on the depth chart \u2014 was dismissed from the program.

Wilson started the Hawaii game but exited after the first series because of a sprained ankle. He did not suit up against Washington, and his status is unknown for Saturday\u2019s game at UCLA.

Taylor replaced Wilson and excelled. Taylor rushed for 168 yards against the Rainbow Warriors and 97 against the Huskies before suffering an injury that \u201cmore than likely\u201d will sideline him for the season, Rodriguez said.

If Wilson is able to play, the Wildcats can run their entire offense. They had no restrictions with Taylor either, despite his being a true freshman.

\u201cJ.J. was a really sharp guy \u2013 is a sharp guy,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cEvery week we were going to do more and more with him. But now we\u2019ve got to go back to Step 1 a little bit.

\u201cWe\u2019ll adjust. Those things happen in the game. We\u2019ll have 11 when we go out there, I hope.\u201d

Arizona can\u2019t use its entire offensive arsenal with less-experienced backs in the lineup. If Wilson can\u2019t play Saturday, the likely tandem will be Tyrell Johnson and Zach Green. They combined for 35 yards on 11 carries against Washington.

Johnson began the season as a slot receiver. Although he has a background at tailback and practiced there during the week, he looked rusty against the Huskies. Johnson fumbled twice, losing one of them.

\u201cHe hasn\u2019t gotten a lot of reps,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cHe hasn\u2019t gotten hit a lot.\u201d

Rodriguez said Johnson needs to work on \u201ceverything at the position \u2013 where to press blocks, ball security, blocking. There\u2019s all kinds of stuff.\u201d

Arizona is high on walk-on Branden Leon, a redshirt freshman who could be in the mix Saturday. Rodriguez said the coaching staff is discussing additional alternatives. Other players with tailback backgrounds include receiver Samajie Grant and safety Anthony Mariscal.

Taylor\u2019s \u2018bad luck\u2019

Could Taylor\u2019s injury have been prevented?

\u201cAt the time I thought so,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cI\u2019m saying to myself, \u2018Blow the whistle, blow the whistle.\u2019 It\u2019s just bad luck.\u201d

Taylor\u2019s injury happened on a play late in the third quarter where his forward progress had been stopped. The officials might have blown the whistle a second late. By then, 318-pound UW defensive tackle Greg Gaines and others had driven Taylor into the ground.

Rodriguez described Taylor as a \u201cspecial talent\u201d and a \u201cvery tough individual.\u201d

\u201cMore than anything, you just feel bad for him,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cHe will be back at 100 percent and be even better. But right now it stings.\u201d

No second thoughts

Rodriguez further explained his decision to eschew a two-point conversion at the end of regulation Saturday.

Arizona scored with 17 seconds remaining to make the score 28-27. Rodriguez immediately sent out the extra-point team.

\u201cI\u2019ve been in a few overtime games,\u201d he said. \u201cI believe in getting to that point \u2014 trust your team that you\u2019ll win it in overtime.\u201d

Rodriguez said it wouldn\u2019t matter if the Wildcats had been on the road or whether he sensed they were fatigued. \u201cI feel confident going into overtime that we\u2019ll be able to pull it out,\u201d he said.

Arizona lost, 35-28.

Earlier in the game, Rodriguez went for six on fourth-and-goal from the UW 2-yard line. The Wildcats didn\u2019t make it. He didn\u2019t consider that move nearly as big a gamble.

\u201cI\u2019d go for it again, 100 percent,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cI wouldn\u2019t think twice about the decision to go for it. I\u2019d call a better play. They got in a defense that\u2019s hard to run that particular play against. Hindsight\u2019s pretty good at this point.\u201d

In terms of timing, it didn\u2019t feel like much of a coincidence.

By May, safety Rhedi Short had already been verbally committed to UCLA for seven months. On May 7, he visited the UA for a Junior Day event, along with his Cathedral (Los Angeles) High School teammate Hunter Echols, a four-star safety and then-UCLA commit who has since flipped to USC.

On May 8, Short announced he was backing out of his UCLA commitment and reopening his recruitment.

A few weeks later, he released a list of his top five schools: Arizona, Oregon, Penn State, Arizona State and California.

Finally, Short announced his verbal commitment to Arizona\u2019s 2017 class in early July.

So was it just a coincidence that Short decommitted from UCLA just after a visit to Tucson, only to commit to Arizona not too long after?

Short insists it really was just a coincidence.

\u201cActually, I was already planning on decommitting before I went out there,\u201d Short said, \u201cbut it just worked out that I decomitted after.\u201d

Ultimately, it doesn\u2019t matter \u2014 Short was a recruiting coup for Arizona\u2019s rising 2017 class. Short, rated three-stars by Scout.com, picked the UA over offers from programs like Oregon and UCLA, who the Wildcats will face in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

\u201cThe biggest thing is I was most comfortable there,\u201d Short said about Arizona. \u201cSo when I was up there, and I was talking to everybody, it just felt like home.\u201d

Short, listed at 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, was the 20th recruit to commit to Arizona\u2019s 2017 class in a wave of summer recruitments. The class has since ballooned to 26 players and is currently ranked as the No. 1 2017 class in the Pac-12 by Scout.

\u201cYeah it\u2019s crazy, it\u2019s really crazy. It\u2019s really cool that I\u2019m a part of it,\u201d Short said. \u201cWe have a group chat, we talk every day. We\u2019re all happy we decided and we can\u2019t wait to get out there \u2026

\u201cWith everybody that\u2019s in my class, it just seems like it\u2019s gonna be a lot of fun and a great experience.\u201d

Although Short was swayed away from UCLA, he said he\u2019s happy with his decision to become a Wildcat.

\u201cI haven\u2019t doubted it one bit,\u201d Short said. \u201cI\u2019ve been happy throughout the couple of months I\u2019ve been committed, so that\u2019s been good.\u201d

Burmeister breaking records in San Diego

There might not be an Arizona commit having a better season right now than senior quarterback Braxton Burmeister of La Jolla (California) Country Day.

On Sept. 16, he set a new record for career total yards.

He also has 95 career touchdown passes after throwing for four more last week.

He needs just one more passing touchdown to tie the CIF San Diego Section record.

So far this season, Burmeister has thrown just one interception in 202 pass attempts, collecting 1,675 passing yards and 21 touchdowns to go with 383 rushing yards and seven more touchdowns.

For his career, he\u2019s amassed 11,019 total yards.

\u201cIt\u2019s definitely an awesome feeling,\u201d Burmeister told San Diego Community News Group.

\u201cI have to pretty much give all the credit to the players and coaches around me. They have made it possible for me to be successful.\u201d

Burmeister is expected to take an official visit to Arizona\u2019s campus sometime this season, most likely for the USC game on Oct. 15.

Quick hitters from the Arizona Wildcats\u2019 weekly news conference Monday afternoon at the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility:

* UA coach Rich Rodriguez said freshman tailback J.J. Taylor \u201cmore than likely\u201d is out for the season after suffering a broken left ankle against Washington on Saturday night. Rodriguez described Taylor as a \u201cspecial talent.\u201d

*\u00a0Rodriguez said all the injuries at running back have forced Arizona to scale back the playbook. I\u2019ll have more on this topic later.

*\u00a0Rodriguez defended his decision to eschew a two-point conversion at the end of regulation, saying he trusted his team to win in overtime.

*\u00a0Rodriguez said he didn\u2019t make a big deal out of Trey Griffey\u2019s downfield block on Brandon Dawkins\u2019 79-yard touchdown run because that\u2019s the way the Wildcats are expected to play all the time.

*\u00a0Rodriguez said Dawkins wasn\u2019t quite as sharp against Washington as he was against Hawaii but that his running ability provided a \u201cbig lift.\u201d

*\u00a0Rodriguez was impressed with UCLA\u2019s physicality against Stanford. The Bruins were leading the Cardinal until the final minute, when Stanford rallied. Rodriguez is 0-4 against UCLA and conceded that \u201cwe\u2019ve not played well against them.\u201d

*\u00a0Rodriguez said Arizona is using \u201c11\u201d personnel (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) about 60 percent of the time and is happy with the present and future at the tight end position.

*\u00a0Rodriguez likes how resilient and scrappy the defense has been, but he\u2019s still seeking more three-and-outs. Arizona is last in the Pac-12 in third-down defense.

*\u00a0Rodriguez said he trusts Nate Phillips \u201c100 percent\u201d as a punt returner despite Phillips\u2019 ill-advised attempt to field a bouncing punt Saturday, resulting in a fumble. \u201cI don\u2019t think you\u2019ll see Nate make that mistake again,\u201d Rodriguez said.

*\u00a0Rodriguez attributed Shun Brown\u2019s recent production to him being open more than other receivers. Brown has 12 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown in the past two games.

*\u00a0Rodriguez indicated that receiver Shawn Poindexter got banged up during the game. Poindexter had three catches for 29 yards, all in the first quarter.

*\u00a0Despite some errant snaps against Washington, Rodriguez said redshirt-freshman center Nathan Eldridge has done a good job in his first time as a starter. The poor snap at the end \u201cdid kind of discombobulate the whole play,\u201d Rodriguez said.
