Former Miami Hurricanes CB Demetrius Freeney is heading to Arizona

Arizona added former Miami Hurricanes cornerback Demetrius Freeney through the transfer portal on Sunday. Freeney announced his commitment to X.

Freeney joins the Wildcats after one season in Miami, where he signed to play for former UA secondary coach Jahmile Adae. Freeney signed with Miami over Oklahoma, Houston, Louisville and San Jose State.

Freeney appeared in three games during his season in Miami but did not record any statistics.

Before Miami, Freeney, a native of San Leandro, California, played at the College of San Mateo in Northern California.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Freeney had two interceptions, six pass break-ups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in one season at the College of San Mateo. Freeney is the newest College of San Mateo member to join the Wildcats since the hiring of head coach Brent Brennan. He joins cornerback Johno Price, defensive end Cyrus Durham and wide receiver Jeremiah Patterson, who also transferred to Arizona on Sunday.
