Jordan Poland is an ex-Arizona Wildcat. The offensive lineman has been dismissed from the program following his arrest on charges of trafficking in stolen property

A spokesman for the Tucson Police Department told The Arizona Daily Star that Poland "was arrested because he pawned a microphone that had been reported stolen in a burglary." Poland is currently not a suspect in the burglary, which is still reportedly under investigation.

Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez athletic director Greg Byrne have released a statement to the Daily Star regarding Poland's dismissal from the football program.
“The athletics department and the football program were notified earlier today of an issue involving Jordan Poland. As a result, we have decided that Jordan will no longer be a member of our football team. We will continue to cooperate with the authorities on this matter moving forward.”

Poland was a former four-star OL prospect who redshirted for the Wildcats in 2014.
