Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Secondary – Arizona Wildcats

By Sam Saig, August 18, 2009 9:51 am

Last season was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Arizona secondary. After all, the unit was replacing Jim Thorpe Award Winner (Best Defensive Back in Country) Antoine Cason and four-year starter Wilrey Fontenot. But the 2008 Wildcats defensive backfield didn’t miss a beat, finishing with the 14th ranked pass efficiency defense in America.

Two starters return again this season, along with an abundance of exciting new talent at both cornerback and safety. Defensive minded head coach Mike Stoops and his brother Mark (defensive coordinator and secondary coach) have put together a unit that is loaded with elite athletes. Opposing offenses will not find much room through the air against these ‘Cats, as this secondary looks like the strength of an already impressive defense.

Cornerbacks

The marquis performer of UA’s explosive secondary is senior corner Devin Ross. Ross made the post-Cason transition quite easy for Arizona, as he locked down almost every number one receiver he faced throughout 2008. He finished with 50 tackles, 13 pass breakups, and three interceptions on his way to being named second team All-Pac 10.
