Key 2015 Pac-12 football off-season transfers, injuries and dismissals

You may have missed it, but these players won't be playing for their teams in 2015.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Arizona State

LB Davon Durant

Oh Davon Durant, we hardly knew ye. Durant was one of the nation's top JC prospects and the rare JC guy who seems like he could be an instant All-Pac-12 player, but he didn't even make it to fall camp, getting dismissed for off-the-field issues.

Cal

DE Brennan Scarlett

Scarlett was a frequently-injured pass rusher for the Bears who it will hurt for them to watch suit up for Stanford in 2015.

Colorado

DE Tyler Henington

The Buffs were hoping that Henington could come back and help their ailing defensive line after missing all of 2014 due to injury, but he recently went down with an injury again and will not play in 2015.

DT Josh Tupou

A big reason why the Colorado defensive line is ailing is the dismissal of Tupou. Arguably the best player on the Colorado defense, Tupou was dismissed for off-the-field reasons and leaves a huge hole in the middle of the Buff defense.

Oregon

DT Sam Kamp

Kamp was a solid depth player for the Ducks but retired from football after the 2014 season.

RB Thomas Tyner

Tyner is a former five-star recruit and big back with world class speed that has just never seemed to be healthy in college. That trend has continued as Tyner will miss all of 2015 after shoulder surgery and it is unclear if he will remain at Oregon.

T Andre Yruretagoyena

Yruretagoyena started 2014 as a starter, but missed the rest of the season due to injury and ultimately decided to retire from football.

Oregon State

WR Richard Mullaney

Mullaney had more than 50 receptions and nearly 800 yards in 2013, but was injured for most of 2014 and transferred to Alabama.

Stanford

S Zach Hoffpauir

The hard-hitting Hoffpauir looked to be one of the few remaining veterans on the Stanford defense, but he left to fully pursue his baseball career in June.

CB Wayne Lyons

The Cardinal took a huge hit, whenever veteran holdover, Lyons, decided to trail Jim Harbaugh to Michigan and play his final season of college in Ann Arbor.

UCLA

WR Devin Lucien

The Bruins have plenty of depth at receiver and it is why the speedy and slightly-productive Lucien decided to transfer to Arizona State for his final season of college.

S Priest Willis

Willis was a part-time starter for the Bruins, but transferred out of a talented and crowded secondary this off-season.

QB Asiantii Woulard

Woulard was a major player in the quarterback battle this spring but transferred out when it became clear that Josh Rosen would likely be the starter and Jerry Neuheisel the back-up. He hasn't made an impact at UCLA, but his impact leaves the Bruins with major depth questions at quarterback.

Washington

CB Naijiel Hale

Hale saw a lot of time for the Huskies as a true freshman and was expected to compete for a starting spot in 2015 but was dismissed just before fall camp.

QB Cyler Miles

Miles was Washington's starter in 2014, but he didn't do much to win over fans, missed the opener due to an off-the-field incident and left the program after the spring due to chronic injuries.

WR/CB John Ross

Ross was one of the nation's most electric kick returners in 2014 and a big play receiver/sometime cornerback. The Huskies took a huge blow in the spring when it was announced that he will miss all of 2015 with a knee injury.

Washington State

CB DaQuawn Brown

Brown was an emerging star for the Cougars after a stellar 2014, but he was dismissed in December.
