Juron Criner working out on campus
Arizona receiver Juron Criner, whose status for the coming season was in doubt following reports last month of an undisclosed medical issue, is on campus working out and will join the Wildcats when they begin preseason camp Aug. 4, the Arizona Daily Star reported.
Coach Mike Stoops told the newspaper Criner is "here and ready to go."
"We anticipate having Juron," Stoops told the Daily Star. "He had some family issues that were concerning over the summer, and those are personal. We anticipate him being the same player -- or a better player -- than he was a year ago."
Criner missed a scheduled trip in June, and Arizona officials, citing privacy laws, wouldn't reveal the player's exact condition, though a source told ESPN.com that it was a "non-injury, medical issue."
Criner, listed at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors last year after leading the conference in receptions (82) and receiving yards (1,233) while scoring 11 touchdowns. He recently was named to the Biletnikoff Award watch list.
