Arizona officially signs ex-USC QB Jesse Scroggins

Wednesday JUCO signing day, and former USC quarterback Jesse Scroggins is headed back to the Pac-12.

Arizona announced on its website Wednesday that Scroggins is coming to Tucson after one season in the JUCO ranks. He will be eligible to play immediately in the 2013 season.

Scroggins redshirted in 2010 and served as a backup in 2011 at USC before transferring to El Camino College. He will be a redshirt junior in 2013 with two years of eligibility remaining. That means he will be in the running to become Arizona’s starting quarterback as Matt Scott is a senior.

“He’s a talented guy. He’s probably a little hungry to go out and prove himself,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez told the Tucson Citizen. “We’re trying to create competition at every position, and he’ll certainly bring that.”

The Wildcats just finished an 8-5 season under Rodriguez, which included a New Mexico Bowl win.

    I hope he comes with a better attitude and work ethic then he had last season. I’ve been told he was a cancer on a team that won only 2 games. This kid has so much talent. So far he has been a big disappointment.

    Best of luck to you and hopefully getting back in the Pac12 will bring back your hunger for the game.

    Scroggins was horrible at El Camino this season. I understand wanting to create a competitive atmosphere but this is an absolute slap in the face of last year’s JUCO signee / this year’s backup, BJ Denker, by RichRod.
