Sam Pittman and Arkansas football added a sixth transfer Sunday and the fourth from within the SEC.

Georgia defensive back Latavious Brini announced his commitment to the Razorbacks via Instagram on Sunday.

Brini has one year of eligibility remaining following his fifth year with Georgia, in which the Bulldogs' elite defense helped win a national championship earlier this month.

Brini started 11 games at nickelback on that Georgia defense. He finished this season with 38 tackles, including 2.5 for loss. Arkansas has been in the market for an experienced player at nickel since starter Greg Brooks Jr. transferred to LSU earlier this month.

Brini joins Oklahoma receiver Jadon Haselwood, LSU edge rusher Landon Jackson, Alabama linebacker Drew Sanders, LSU corner Dwight McGlothern and South Florida quarterback Cade Fortin, who joins as a walk-on, as players to transfer to the Razorbacks.

Arkansas has lost more than a dozen players to the transfer portal this offseason and is also looking to replace a handful of players who have declared for the NFL Draft.

Its 2022 recruiting class, including the scholarship transfer players, stands at 25, leaving the Razorbacks with room to sign three more.

The signing period for high school athletes opens Feb. 2.
