Brandon Dawkins, a quarterback, is taking his graduate transfer from Arizona to Indiana. Dawkins was the starter for a year plus for the Wildcats before losing his starting job. He has one year of college football remaining and will provide immediate experience for a very young group of Hoosier quarterbacks.
More updates to the committed transfer list.
Marcus Griffin, a defensive lineman, is taking his graduate transfer from Arizona to Central Michigan. Griffin failed to make the line rotation during his three years with the Wildcats, appearing in just 11 games. But he was a highly touted prospect coming out of high school, and a change of scenery may spark a big year. He will have one season of eligibility with the Chippewas.
Madre London, a running back, will be a grad transfer to Tennessee. He was a role player at Michigan State, racking up nearly a thousand yards and eight touchdowns in his career. London figures to be a good fit for Tennessee's new pro-style offense, and he'll have one season of eligibility to make an impact. This is the third graduate transfer the Vols have landed this month.
Alabama has taken on their second graduate transfer this off-season. Gardner Minshew, a quarterback, joins the Crimson Tide from East Carolina. While other schools kicked the tires around Minshew, he's been linked to Alabama from day one. He's from Mississippi and played his college football in the JUCO ranks there before heading to East Carolina, so this move makes sense. He's likely being brought in for depth, as Alabama is currently a bit light when it comes to QB's. Minshew has a year of eligibility remaining, with the potential for a second year.
Meanwhile, Trevor Wood is taking his grad transfer to Texas A&M. Wood saw time at both tight end and on the defensive line for Arizona, but he's heading to College Station to play on offense. He was a role player for the Wildcats, but figures to be right in the mix under the new Aggies staff.
Brandon Dawkins, a quarterback who's spent the last four years at Arizona, is taking a graduate transfer once he finishes his degree in May. He's a dual-threat quarterback who started games during both the 2016 and 2017 seasons and made 23 appearances in three years of college football the Wildcats. However, he was bypassed on the depth chart and has decided to move on for his senior year.
Alex Ofodile, a wide receiver, is leaving Oregon to play college football at Missouri. He'll graduate in June and take his grad transfer this summer, where he'll have two years left to play. Ofodile is an interesting case. He's following his college teammate, Khalil Oliver, to Missouri. But it gets more interesting. Ofodile is from Columbia, Missouri, and his father is Mizzou's wide receiver coach. Somethings are just meant to be.
Meanwhile, Dylan Klumph, a punter, is taking a graduate transfer to Arizona. He leaves California as one of the best punters in their history and fills in a position of immediate need for the Wildcats. He graduates in May and has one year of eligibility left.
Finally, Madre London, a running back, is taking a graduate transfer from Michigan State. Stuck behind other runners on the depth chart, London is looking for a new opportunity at a new school. He has one year of eligibility remaining and has run for 900 yards in four years for the Spartans.
Arizona linebacker Brandon Rutt is taking a graduate transfer. He's the second Wildcat this week to look an opportunity to play his final season elsewhere. Rutt started four games this season before losing his starting job to a true freshman, and he appeared in every game of his Arizona career. Rutt will graduate in the spring.
Meanwhile, Casey Hughes, who had 11 starts as a defensive back for Utah last season, will also play college football elsewhere next season. Hughes earned his starting role after appearing primarily on special teams his first two seasons on campus. It's unclear yet when Hughes will graduate, but he's a three time All-Conference academic performer, so he'll probably be fine. Stay tuned on this one - Hughes seems likely to be in high demand.
Trevor Wood, a tight end who saw some time on the defensive line this year, is planning to take a graduate transfer and play college football elsewhere next year. Wood, whose career has been plagued by injuries and an unfavorable offense, told the Arizona Daily Star that his transfer had nothing to do with Rich Rodriguez leaving. Wood had 63 yards on 9 catches in his career. He also stood out on defense for the Wildcats down the stretch this year after being forced into action on the defensive line due to injury.
Trevor Wood hopes to transfer to his new school for the spring semester.

Two players from Notre Dame, C.J Sanders and Pete Mokwuah, are taking grad transfers.
Sanders is only a junior, but it's being reported that he will have enough credits to graduate over the summer. Because he played as a true freshman, he only has one year of eligibility remaining. He made his mark returning kicks for the Irish for the last three years, while only seeing significant reps at wide receiver in 2016.
Mokwuah, a Long Island native, played sparingly during his four years at Notre Dame as a defensive lineman. He red-shirted his freshman year, and has another year of eligibility left.
Arizona defensive lineman Marcus Griffin also announced his intention to transfer for his final year of eligibility. Griffin made appeared in 11 games over three years with the Wildcats and was included in Arizona's recognition of graduating senior in November.
