Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona Wildcats will practice tonight at 6 p.m. Before that, a couple of minor pieces of news to pass along.

• The Wildcats added safety Tyler Turituri to their roster today. Turituri played the 2011 season with Portland State and then sat out last year.

He’s the older brother of freshman linebacker Derrick Turituri. Tyler is a non-scholarship player and is eligible to play this season.

He's a sophomore and is listed at 6-2, 224. He played cornerback for Portland State, but will be a safety for the UA.

• Also added to the roster today was safety Tyler Grammar, a former Ironwood Ridge High School product. Grammar was with the UA in the spring, but not at the start of fall camp. His name is back on the roster. He played last season at Pima Community College and is a sophomore. He's a non-scholarship player.

• Rodriguez awarded scholarships to receiver Trevor Ermisch and running back Terris Jones today. Both are juniors.

Ermisch has been getting a decent amount of reps with the first and second groups on offense and had a nice 40-yard grab on Saturday at the team's open practice at Arizona Stadium.

• The UA released its latest video earlier today. It gives a neat look at the team's digs the night before the game at their hotel. It's hosted by seniors Terrence Miller, Marquis Flowers and Tevin Hood. A link to the video is included in this post.
