  • Good for him, maybe he will go to a winning program.  Okie State could use him.

  • Guess he feels like he wouldn't beat out the rest of the guys. Highly touted out of HS, sure wasn't the talent his brother was, that's for sure

  • Will earned his degree like a boss, can earn a Masters, and wants to go play.  Dude deserves a pat on the back.

  • Congrats on getting your degree and thanks for being a Razorback.  All the best as you pursue your Grad Degree.  That is just awesome.

  • Any rumors on where he's headed?

    Only 1, but I suspect another 2-4 will leave.

  • Earning a degree in 3 years is the real deal. Wish he would have stayed but best of luck to him.

  • Hate to see him go but it always seemed likely that one or more of those tight ends was going to eventually decide he would be better served to go somewhere that was not so crowded.

    That is really cool. Always admired kids that could do that.  For someone that took 7 years I have always been kind of jealous of people that completed their degree early...

    Wish him nothing but the best going forward.

    This. Congrats to Will on his degree. Hate to see him go and hate that he never did big things in the Razorback uniform. Thank you for choosing Arkansas over so many others Will. Good luck in your future endeavors.

  • Will he transfer to another DI school, or is there any chance he might go lower division? I'd love to see him head to UCA, and help the Bears win over the next two seasons. He might actually start!
  • #18 by Hog in Iowa on 13 Apr 2018
  • Good for you, Will.  That's real nice work getting your degree early.  Best of luck in the future and thanks for the work you put in being a Hog.

  • My bet is Louisville.

    UCA is DI, just an FCS. That would be great, and I bet he would consider if it were a regular transfer and their HC had stayed. But I'm guessing being a grad transfer, he'll look into a program that offers immediate playing time and that fits his style. Not so sure he fits the spread, really.
  • #22 by k.c.hawg on 13 Apr 2018
  • Young man deserves all the respect in the world. My best guess is he will have plenty of offers and wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't post a couple of nice seasons somewhere. We are spoiled by our tight end play, a lot of teams will be willing to find touch's for him.
  • #23 by Dark Helmet Hog on 13 Apr 2018
  • Good for him. Wish him the best unless he plays the Hogs.
  • #24 by Nashville Fan on 13 Apr 2018
  • Thanks and good job!
  • #25 by SooieGeneris on 13 Apr 2018
  • Good luck to him. Great that he has a degree, he just got caught up in all the numbers at his position I guess. I think he can play somewhere, hopefully he finds a place where he can utilize his abilities.
  • #26 by FutureMan on 13 Apr 2018
  • Thanks for being a hog, Will.  Good luck on your future endeavors.  You will always be a part of this program.

  • Kid sounds like he's got his act together.  Thanks for being a Razorback and good luck young man. 
  • #28 by Jackrabbit Hog on 13 Apr 2018
  • I guess I never really understood the lack of playing time.  The very few times he did see action, he stood out.  Maybe he was a 'tweener, not fast enough to be a WR and not big enough to be a true TE, but the talent was there and we should have utilized it better.

    Oh, and congrats on the degree.  Impressive.

    Since he's a grad transfer and thus would be eligible to play immediately, I'd guess he tries to stay at a power 5. Probably try and find a school with the best overall talent, but weakest TE position.

    I thought the exact opposite. Of him, Cantrell, and O'Grady (and later Patton) Gragg appeared to be noticeably the slowest of the group. Felt  he was stuck in that 'tweener spot of not being big enough to become an offensive lineman but not being athletic enough to play TE.
  • #31 by hogginbama on 13 Apr 2018
  • Best of luck to this young man. Congrats on graduating early, now on to that Masters program and a team that can put your talents to use.

    When he was in high school I thought he was very slow off the line good hands. Not surprised he already got a degree...Mr Gragg don't play when it come to those books!
  • #35 by greenEGnHAWGS on 13 Apr 2018
  • Hope all the best for him. But with OGrady coming on strong, Cantrell just being a beast, and the advent of Patton, I dont blame him.

    Tells you just how good a crop of TEs we have on campus.

    So true. I look forward to seeing how CCM incorporates them into his offense.

    He is a much better athlete than football player. If you watched his high school games you would understand.

  • Clearing room for Hudson Henry.

    https://247sports.com/Player/Hudson-Henry-90363

    I was listening to an interview with Hunter Henry the other day.
    When asked about Hudson going to Arkansas - he said Hudson wants to see the offense this fall before deciding where he's going.

    whats that got to do with what i said.. lol.. Ive seen him platy of times. Always honestly thought he was overrated even in high school. Never dominated at the high school level like you would think with all the offers he had.

    That's just good sense. New coach, new culture.

    If you think you might even have an outside shot at the NFL, you have to go to the place that helps you the most.

    That was my assessment of him too. I don't see him at FSU. Louisville would be a better fit BP likes TE's.

    Well, he isn't going to have much college tape to show anyone.

  • He has really worked hard and improved.

    We just have some really good players there
