After departures from last year's team, the Arizona knew it would need to add some height to its receiver corps.
Cayleb Jones left for the NFL and David Richards ran out of eligiblity, leaving Trey Griffey as the lone returner taller than 6-feet. Glendale CC receiver Shawn Poindexter, who is 6-foot-6, signed with the Wildcats in February.
Sunday, the Wildcats added another tall piece — South Florida's Zach Benjamin announced he would transfer to Arizona on social media, posting messages to both Instagram and Twitter.
Benjamin is listed at 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, and comes to the Wildcats after redshirting his freshman 2014 season and not seeing the field at all in 2015. It's likely that Benjamin will have to sit out a season due to transfer rules, although it's unclear if Arizona will try and push for Benjamin to be eligible right away after not playing at all last season.
He played high school football at Tampa Catholic in Tampa Bay, Florida, which falls into safeties coach Jahmile Addae's recruiting territory. Coming out of high school, Scout.com had him as a two-star recruit with offers from Air Force, Arkansas State, Bowling Green, Colgate, Massachusetts, Ohio, Toledo and Western Kentucky.
