Finally, somebody not heading to Seattle. Savea, who spent one season with Arizona after transferring in from UCLA, will be joining Texas as it makes the jump to the SEC. He will be reuniting with Texas co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Johnny Nansen, who also coached him in his first year at UCLA in 2021.

Shaw's stint with Arizona was short. After committing to transfer to Arizona from Indiana on Dec. 11, he re-entered the transfer portal after just over a month with the Wildcats. It seems like cornerbacks coach John Richardson may have been the linchpin because Shaw is heading to Washington.

The transfer portal giveth quarterbacks, and then it taketh away. Four-star quarterback Demond Williams Jr. entered the transfer portal on Jan. 17, per Jason Scheer of 247Sports. Williams has yet to take a regular-season snap and enrolled early, forgoing his final semester of high school. Instead of landing Noah Fifita or even Brayden Dorman, Fisch has his consolation prize in Williams.

JC. RB. Committed: 1/20. . . . Jonah Coleman. Jonah Coleman. player. 521

Coleman was the first domino to fall, announcing his intentions on Jan. 15 and officially entering two days later on Jan. 17. He was set to take over the starting role out of the backfield for the Wildcats in 2023, but it looks like he will be following his Fisch and his positional coach Scottie Graham to Washington. Rayshon "Speedy" Luke, who recently announced a return, will take up the starting running back spot.

. player. 511. BD. Withdrew: 1/17. Brayden Dorman. . . Brayden Dorman. QB

Dorman's stint in the transfer portal was short. After entering on Monday, Jan. 15, the former four-star quarterback recruit out of high school spent just two days evaluating his options before announcing his return. If Noah Fifita (and Tetairoa McMillan) end up staying, Dorman seems poised to battle with Cole Tannenbaum for the backup role.

. . Committed: 1/15. . Charles Yates Jr.. 2274. player. DB. Charles Yates Jr.. DB

Yates was the third player already in the transfer portal to find a new home yesterday with Old Dominion. Yates, who originally played junior college ball at L.A. Pierce College, announced his entry into the transfer portal the same morning as the Alamo Bowl. appeared in five games for Arizona in 2023 and recorded two tackles, both against UTEP. With safeties Terry Jones headed to Indiana and Tahj Ra-El headed to Memphis, the starting spot at both safety positions is up for grabs, with Yates profiling better as a box safety for the Monarchs.

. Jayden de Laura. . player. Jayden de Laura. QB. . 2291. JDL. Committed: 1/15

It appears that de Laura won't be following Fisch to Washington. He announced intentions to enter the transfer portal on Christmas day. The former starting quarterback has dealt with a myriad of off-field issues but was the one who initially righted the ship back in 2022. He will join an upstart Texas State team that will be looking to retain head coach GJ Kinne, who's become a hot name for Arizona in this recruiting cycle.

RB. 2339. Rock. . . . Stevie Rocker Jr.. player. Committed: 1/15. Stevie Rocker Jr.

Rocker, a Tucson native, is the first of the players to enter the portal before Fisch's new hire to find a new home. He announced intentions to enter the transfer portal back in November, and he took his time on the hunt. He joins a Montana squad that is fresh off an appearance in the FCS championship. However, he will be competing with reigning Jerry Rice Award winner Eli Gillman for starting snaps.
