Arizona lands transfer commitment from former standout Colorado receiver
Arizona added a big-time playmaker from the transfer portal on Saturday.
Former Colorado receiver Montana Lemonious-Craig announced on social media he has committed to coach Jedd Fisch and the Wildcats. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver from California spent three seasons with the Buffs. He shined in the Buffs’ spring game back on April 22 and then, two days later, showed up in the transfer portal.
Lemonious-Craig was rated as a 4-star transfer by 247Sports and viewed as one of the top available players on the market. He has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Lemonious-Craig caught three passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Colorado’s spring game on April 22. He looked like he’d be a major weapon for CU and a retooled offense under Deion Sanders. Instead, he became part of the massive spring portal exodus in Boulder.
With the Wildcats in Tucson, Lemonious-Craig can be a complement to Jacob Cowing and Tetairoa McMillan. He caught 23 balls for 359 yards and three touchdowns last season as one of the lone bright spots for the entire CU team. For his career, Lemonious-Craig recorded 34 receptions for 497 yards and five scores.
He’s the eighth transfer pickup this offseason for Fisch and Co.
