RB Nathan Tilford, CB Bobby Wolfe among those no longer on Arizona Wildcats roster

RB Nathan Tilford is no longer part of the Arizona football program heading into spring practice 2021.

Personnel turnover was inevitable when Jedd Fisch took over as Arizona Wildcats coach, and it’s evident on the roster for spring practice.

Tapusua was a rotation regular in his two seasons at the UA, appearing in 16 of 17 games. He registered 19 tackles, including one sack.

Adams appeared in eight games between 2018 and ’19 but did not register any statistics.

Clark excelled as a special-teams player as a freshman in 2019. He played in four of five games last season, recording six tackles.
