Arkansas redshirt freshman quarterback Jacoby Walker has decided to move on from the program in pursuit of more playing time, coach Bobby Petrino confirmed on Saturday.
Walker will likely transfer to Central Arkansas, a 1-AA program, according to Matt Jones of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Walker would not have to sit out a year per NCAA rules if he moves down a level.
Walker has been buried on the Razorbacks depth chart for the past season and never saw any game time. Although he enrolled at Arkansas early in 2010, he tore his ACL in the spring game that year.
Arkansas’ other three scholarship quarterbacks, including starter Tyler Wilson, are set to return next year, so the chances of Walker getting any breathing room in the depth chart looked slim.
