Tight end Jalin Conyers announced he will enter the transfer portal via social media for his final year of eligibility.
The 6-foot-4, 270 pound tight end recorded only 30 catches for 362 yards and no touchdowns through 11 games in 2023. Despite being the starting tight end, Conyers saw most of his action coming from gadget plays and direct snaps through the ‘Hallcat’ formation, which became a feature in the offense against UCLA, Oregon and Arizona.
He carried the ball 22 times for 92 yards and a touchdown in his final season, his longest run coming of 39 yards coming from the 59-23 loss to Arizona in the Territorial Cup. Conyers completed 5 of 6 passes for 20 yards as well.
Through three seasons in Tempe, Conyers compiled 74 receptions for 846 yards and 12 touchdowns, five of which came in his hot streak toward the end of the 2022 season.
The 2023 season was unorthodox, leading to his underwhelming role as a receiver, and thus prompting his exit. Conyers has one year of eligibility left.
