Former Arkansas running back Denzell Evans reportedly has a new home, and it happens to be in his home state of Texas.
Evans, a native of Houston, is reportedly transferring to SMU after finishing a summer class, Patrick Engel of PonyStampede.com reports.
Evans is finishing a summer class that will finalize his status as a grad transfer. He'll arrive for #SMU's fall camp in August.

Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema announced Evans’ departure earlier this month during an SEC teleconference.
Evans appeared in 15 games — primarily on special teams — the last two seasons after redshirting in 2013. He ends his career with the Razorbacks after just 13 carries for 84 yards, but will have two years of eligibility at SMU as a graduate transfer.
Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams III took to Twitter to wish his former teammate well in his new locale.
Best of luck to my dog for life @D_Evans34 as he prepares to start his next chapter at SMU! Go show out family
