Arizona coach Jedd Fisch has meticulously worked on rounding out the 2021 recruiting class, which has 15 players signed and six transfers committed to the program.
On Monday morning, Fisch added transfer number seven by landing former Western Michigan linebacker Tre Hayward, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds.
