FAYETTEVILLE — The transfer portal officially opened on Dec. 5, and players from schools around the country entered their names to seek opportunities elsewhere. Arkansas football was no exception.
Several Razorback players had already declared their intentions to transfer before the portal technically opened. Others waited until Monday to share their decisions. Players now have until Jan. 15 to enter the portal.
Here's a look at which Arkansas football players have announced they will enter the portal, as well as those who have committed to transfer to Arkansas, with the latest announcements at the top of the list.
Players transferring to Arkansas
Trajan Jeffcoat, DL — Jeffcoat committed to Arkansas on Jan. 22. The transfer portal had closed to new entrants, but uncommitted players with their names still in the portal could still choose a school.
