The Arizona Wildcats conducted their second practice of training camp Thursday morning. Here are some notes and takeaways from practice No. 2:
* The team again focused primarily on fundamental work – leverage, footwork and other drills. The Wildcats did not engage in any 7-on-7 or 11-on-11. That could change Friday, when they practice with shoulder pads for the first time. The defense spent a portion of practice doing turnover drills, including causing and recovering fumbles.
* Tailback D.J. Williams made his UA debut and participated in all individual drills. He appeared to cramp up during sprints at the end of practice – not surprising given that he only recently arrived on campus after transferring from Florida State.
* Tailback Rayshon Luke, receiver Anthony Simpson and cornerback Treydan Stukes were among the leaders in their sprinting groups.

* Offensive lineman Anthony Patt appeared to have turned an ankle during drills but still participated in the sprints.
* Defensive end Jason Harris did not practice because of an illness. He’s expected to be back soon.
* Defensive tackle Kyon Barrs, on the mend from foot surgery, spent a portion of practice working on the side.
* The UA released an updated roster featuring heights and weights for most newcomers. Freshman cornerback Tacario Davis is listed at 6-foot-4, as is fellow freshman corner Ephesians Prysock.
* Ammon Allen said he has been working at three linebacker spots – Mike, Will and Sam. The latter could be part of a new package being added to the defense during camp. We’ll have more on the situation at linebacker later today.
