O'Hara to return to UA football team today

Arizona redshirt sophomore quarterback Ryan O'Hara is expected to be back with the Wildcat football team and enrolled in classes again today after leaving school eight days ago, head coach Mike Stoops said.

"As far as I know he's re-enrolled," Stoops said.

O'Hara withdrew from classes Sept. 8 to return home to the Los Angeles area to be with his 15-year-old brother who had a kidney transplant at UCLA Medical Center Sept. 6.

Stoops said he didn't see the 6-foot-6, 198-pound backup quarterback yesterday, but he believed O'Hara spent the day taking care of re-enrolling in his classes.

"He's at home now and walking around," O'Hara told the Arizona Daily Star this week of his brother Dustin, nicknamed "Duttie."

"Duttie told me to go play football," O'Hara told the Star.

Stoops said third-string signal caller Richard Kovalcheck and quarterback turned receiver Nic Costa would back up starter Kris Heavner this week, as it will take a few days for O'Hara to re-acclimate himself to the UA offense.

O'Hara is yet to play this season, but started one game last year and appeared in four others, completing 33 of 78 passes for 341 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
