Receiver Jamarye Joiner Leaving Arizona for Transfer Portal

Arizona wideout Jamarye Joiner, a Cienega High School star, announced on Twitter on Friday that he has decided to enter his name into the transfer portal, becoming the fourth player to do so in less than 48 hours.

Grant Gunnell, Boobie Curry, and Robert Congel have done the same.

During Joiner’s time with Arizona after graduating from Cienega in 2018, he saw time playing quarterback in limited action before being moved to wideout, where he has played that last two seasons at that position.

While at Arizona, Joiner posted 663 yards receiving on 46 catches and collected six touchdowns while playing the receiver position.

The program has seen an influx of players leaving the program dating back to last season when Colin Schooler, Tony Fields, and Scottie Young left the program for other Power Five teams.

“I want young men that feel good about this program and want to be part of the program,” said Dave Heeke, Arizona’s athletic director. “The first step is finding the next head coach and staff so that we can engage with those young men and talk about their futures. This is a different day in age, there is so much movement in college football, and we tend to get a little bit stuck in our own bubble here; we do not want young men leaving. I think this is a good stop for them.”
