Arizona wide receiver Tyler Slavin leaves the team and will transfer

By on July 1, 2013

Arizona wide receiver Tyler Slavin has left the program.

slavinSlavin announced the decision via Twitter on Friday.

No reason for the departure was given and Slavin did not indicate where he planned to transfer, but school officials later confirmed that he left the team voluntarily.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound redshirt junior played in all 13 games as a reserve receiver last season. He made 22 catches for 224 yards.

His biggest reception of the year was a game-winning 19-yard touchdown catch in the New Mexico Bowl win over Nevada. It was Slavin’s first — and, as it turns out, only — touchdown with the Wildcats.

In three seasons at Arizona, the Corona, Calif. native appeared in 31 games.
