Arizona has cleared the way for quarterback Jayden de Laura to remain with the program in 2023.

Earlier this week, de Laura settled a civil lawsuit in a sexual assault case that stemmed from a 2018 incident while he was in high school.

On Friday afternoon, the program announced that de Laura will be allowed to “continue his status as a student-athlete.” The statement says his standing in the program remains “unchanged.”

Here’s the full statement:

“In the fall of 2022 after a civil complaint was filed against football student-athlete Jayden de Laura, the University of Arizona first became aware of a 2018 incident involving de Laura which occurred while he was in high school in Hawaii.

“After reviewing the matter, the determination was made to allow de Laura to continue as a student-athlete and his status remains unchanged.”

De Laura transferred to Arizona ahead of the 2022 season — prior to when the program says it learned of the matter. He spent the first 2 years of his career at Washington State.

He started all 12 games for the Wildcats last season.
