After graduating in three years, a wide receiver is about to make the jump from the Big 12 to the SEC.
Chase Harrell gave his commitment to the Razorbacks on Tuesday afternoon via Twitter. He had 221 receiving yards on 25 catches and 2 touchdowns with Kansas last season.

“I like Coach [Chad] Morris’ offense. We did some of the same concepts at Kansas,” Harrell told Arkansas Rivals reporter Nikki Chavanelle. “They showed me film of Courtland Sutton and DeAndre Hopkins in the same offense and that’s my goal, to go to the NFL, so it was good to see that.”
Jonathan Nance led Arkansas last season as a wide receiver. He led the Razorbacks in catches (37), receiving yards (539) and receiving touchdowns (5). Jared Cornelious is also coming back off an injury following a promising 2016 season.
Harrell stands 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds so he’ll likely fit somewhere on the outside as a vertical receiving threat down the field.
