Arkansas defensive starter reportedly quits team ahead of Missouri game
Myles Slusher did not make the trip to Missouri, and is no longer with the Razorbacks, a team representative reported on Friday.
Slusher was a starting defensive back, but had a tumultuous season with injuries that kept him out of 4 games, and then he was suspended for the LSU game. If Slusher plans to get a fresh start, the transfer portal opens on Dec. 5.
In terms of production, Slusher in 6 games made 28 tackles and 1 tackle for a loss.
