TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona will have a hard time replacing Ka'Deem Carey with one running back.

A two-time All-American, Carey left the desert with nearly every rushing record in the book.

The Wildcats have auditioned six players for the role in fall camp and each brings something a little different to the table.

Fifth-year senior Terris Jones-Grigsby, a walk-on in 2010, has gotten the most first-team reps so far. Junior Jared Baker was a backup last season before tearing his ACL and is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

Freshmen Nick Wilson and Jonathan Haden also have a chance to contribute, as does UNLV transfer Adonis Smith. Sophomore Zach Green could add some heft to the backfield, too.
