Sophomore Arkansas WR considering transferring

One solid freshman season might be all Arkansas receiver Mekale McKay gives to the Razorbacks.

First-year coach Bret Bielema said McKay was “exploring some options” after practice Monday. “He and I had a conversation a week ago where he wanted to look at different options that could be available to him,” Bielema said.

McKay was the team’s second-leading receiver in 2012 with 317 yards and pair of touchdowns. With Cobi Hamilton gone, the six-foot-six sophomore was expected to take an even bigger leap this season. But Bielema indicated the fit just didn’t seem to be there with McKay. The receiver hasn’t been granted a formal release yet, but Bielema said he’s working to help him find another school if McKay decides he wants to transfer.

“I think during transition there’s going to be certain guys that really kind of just jump in and go full speed ahead, and there’s going to be others that maybe, it just isn’t the same,” Bielema said.

    Sorry, I don’t buy this one, the timing is too weird… I think he’s just got a few things going on. 1st: He moved down on the depth chart, was listed as 2nd string coming out of the spring at Arkansas. 2nd: Didn’t that Bobby Petrino guy recruit him? Isn’t this kid from Kentucky, and isn’t that where Bobby Petrino is now as well? 3rd: There’s a mob/corrupt/point shaving element, that want’s to secretly promote the Auburn coach Gus Malzahn and his wide open offense. These are the same type of things they said about Houston Nutt, that they’re already saying about their new coach, before he’s even played a game yet. ie.. Boring offense. Won’t throw the ball ever. That no wide receiver will ever want to play for Arkansas. Nevermind the fact that the top two teams in the SEC and the nation the last decade or so, ran the same type of offense as what Coach Bret Bielema ran at Wisconsin the last 7 years. Also, overall the Razorbacks were still more successful under Houston Nutt than they were under Bobby Petrino. Bobby Petrino never beat Alabama, and Houston Nutt did. Bobby Petrino never won the SEC west, and Houston Nutt did. And Arkansas also won the Cotton Bowl under Houston Nutt, the biggest bowl win under Bobby Petrino.
