As it turns out, Nebraska doesn’t have a stranglehold on multiple player movements this offseason.
On his personal Twitter account Thursday night, Maleek Barkley announced that he will be transferring from Arkansas. “I have thought about this decision many times with my parents,” Barkley wrote, “and it was very tough knowing where I came from and where and where I am now, it’s a blessing to even be here.”
Barkley, a three-star 2017 signee, began his Razorbacks career as a running back before moving to wide receiver this offseason by new head coach Chad Morris this offseason. He took a redshirt his true freshman season.
In addition to Barkley, four other UA players have transferred this offseason — tight end Will Gragg (to Pitt), tight end Jake Hall (to SMU), defensive back Korey Hernandez (to Iowa Western) and safety Reid Miller (to Montana). Additionally, center Zach Rogers opted to give up his football career to pursue a job in law enforcement.
