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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Clearing room for Hudson Henry.

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.

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.
