Arkansas loses a quarterback to transfer


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.

    That’s not THE Matt Jones is it? QB turned WR turned drug addict turned writer?

    Exactly what I was wondering. if so, not a bad job for a guy who fell very fast and flushed an NFL career away.

    Matt sealed his own fate, but I’d say considering the offenses from past players , the nfl was very severe on Matt. When he got suspended from the nfl, he was leading the team in receptions at the time. He was finally starting to produce.
