Solomon left Arizona as a graduate transfer in the offseason. He participated in spring practice for the Bears and apparently has beaten out sophomore Zach Smith and freshman Charlie Brewer.
Solomon started for most of the 2014 and ’15 seasons at Arizona before injuries derailed his career here. He opened the ’16 season as the starter before suffering a knee injury in practice that sidelined him for several weeks. He made one subsequent start, at Oregon State, but exited before halftime because of a foot injury.
Solomon ended his UA career ranking in the school's top four in total offense (7,359), passing yards (6,922) and touchdown passes (49).
The Baylor-Liberty game will air on FS2 at 4 p.m. Tucson time Saturday.
