‘Medical condition’ ends ‘Zona RB Pierre Cormier’s football career

Pierre Cormier

It was reported late this past week that Arizona would be losing Garic Wharton, a wide receiver who had the potential to add to his production the past two seasons, to transfer.  Unfortunately, another player with production potential won’t be at the Wildcats’ disposal either, albeit for entirely different reasons.

In a post made to his Facebook page, UA running back Pierre Cormier revealed that he is stepping away from the game of football.  An unspecified health issue is the culprit.

From Cormier’s post, by way of the Arizona Daily Star:

“Football has always meant the world to me.. Due to a medical condition I’ve been told I can never play again.. This last week and a half has been the hardest ever for me…”

What the medical condition Cormier’s dealing with is unknown, as is whether it’s football-related. For what it’s worth, UA has yet to address the player’s status.

A three-star member of UA’s 2013 recruiting class, Cormier was rated as the No. 26 running back in the country and the No. 41 player at any position in the talent-rich state of California. Outside of quarterback Anu Solomon and offensive lineman Logan Stott, he was the highest-rated player in last year’s class.

Cormier took a redshirt his true freshman season.

    Really sucks for the kid. With all these other recruits form other schools throwing their careers away by selling drugs, stealing, or doing something else stupid it’s tough to see a kid just trying to make it get dealt a hand like this. Best of luck to the kid and hope this doesnt effect his everyday life.

    ^^^ Couldn’t agree more and couldn’t have said it in a better way…

    Whatever the medical condition, I wish this young man the very best in the future. God Bless!

    Sucks for the kid. Wish him the best of luck. I saw him play in HS in San Diego and thought he was an excellent fit as a Rich Rod back.
