According to AZ Central Sports, senior safety, Tra’Mayne Bondurant, returned to practice with the Arizona. He wasn’t, however, practicing alongside his teammates.
Over the weekend Rich Rodriguez announced that Tra’Mayne Bondurant had been dismissed from his Arizona Wildcats team. But now it looks as though the talented defensive back is climbing out of coach Rich Rodriguez’s doghouse.
Tuscon.com reported this morning that Tra’Mayne Bondurant returned to practice at Kindall/Sancet Stadium with “a weight vest on.”
Coach Rodriguez explained Bondurant’s recent development, “He has a certain number of things to do,” Rodriguez said. “And if he does that, he’ll come back. If he doesn’t, he won’t. He reached out to me and we had a couple of conversations. I told him if he wants to play football for Arizona, this is what he’s supposed to do. Now, he has to do a little more than he had to do before because he took a day off. So that’s what it is.
“I don’t know how long it will be, a few days, a week, a couple of weeks, only the head ball coach is going to determine that.”
The dismissal of Tra’Mayne initially occurred due to a failure, on his part, to complete a discipline that was handed to him after “some discipline issues.”
Last season, Bondurant led the Wildcats with four interceptions. He returned two of those picks for touchdowns. He was one of 15 players to pull off that amazing feat last year.
Tra’Mayne Bondurant’s return would be extremely beneficial for UA’s secondary.
