He will be eligible to return the university announced on Friday night in a statement.

Young Jr., was arrested and charged in a domestic violence incident last year.

“Arizona sophomore defensive back Scottie Young Jr. was involved in a misdemeanor incident last academic year that resulted in his suspension from all team-related activities,” Arizona Athletics said in a statement. “Mr. Young was also investigated by the Dean of Students for student code of conduct violations related to the incident. Since that time, he has completed disciplinary sanctions imposed by the University and separate penalties issued by the Athletics Department, which included removal from all team activities during spring and summer practice and conditioning. In addition, the Athletics Department has determined that he will be suspended for the BYU game. Mr. Young will rejoin the team this week and will be allowed to participate in practice activities.”

Coach Kevin Sumlin and his Cats are finishing up the team’s first week of fall practice on Friday.

Young had a very good first season with UA, starting nine games and finishing with 53 tackles.
