Q&A: Arizona transfer WR Jamarye Joiner on Gophers offer

Wide receiver Jamarye Joiner recently announced his intentions to transfer from Arizona and the Gophers hopped in immediately with an offer. Arizona fired its coach, Kevin Sumlin, which is a factor in Joiner’s decision.

We talked with Joiner about his interest in Minnesota and whether the Wednesday news of Texas A&M transfer receiver Dylan Wright choosing the Gophers has an impact.
