Arizona receiver Garic Wharton is no longer Arizona receiver Garic Wharton, as he's decided to leave the program.

Wharton, a member of Arizona's 2010 recruiting class, graduated in May and has one year of eligibility remaining. It's not yet clear whether Wharton intends to transfer to another school, or if he's just deciding to start his life after football a bit early.

If he does decide to transfer, though, he won't have to sit out a season since he graduated.

Wharton caught 36 passes for 550 yards and four touchdowns over the last two seasons, but he found himself a buried on the depth chart in 2014.
