FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema announced Thursday that junior running back Denzell Evans and redshirt freshman linebacker Derrick Graham will transfer from the program.
Evans and Graham join receiver Eric Hawkins and defensive back Willie Sykes as Razorbacks who chose to transfer this offseason. Hawkins went to SMU.
Evans appeared in 15 games over the last two seasons. Graham redshirted last season as a true freshman.
Bielema reiterated that none of those players’ transfers were because of any legal or behavioral problems. He said they felt like the opportunity to play was better elsewhere.
Evans will take advantage of the NCAA’s graduate transfer rule, allowing him immediate eligibility at his new school when he finds one.
