Arkansas lands commitment from top OL transfer, a former Razorbacks commit
Arkansas’ offensive line just got a big boost for the future in the form of a transfer — and he’s a familiar player to the program.
On Tuesday, Ty’kieast Crawford announced that he has committed to the Razorbacks after spending one year at Charlotte. The 6-foot-5, 335-pound tackle decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal after his freshman season with the 49ers, sharing his decision to do so last week.
This isn’t the first time that Crawford has committed to Arkansas. While he was a 4-star recruit out of Carthage (Texas) High School, he committed to the Razorbacks on April 14, 2019. However, he later decommitted on Oct. 12, 2019, deciding to explore his other college options.
That led to Crawford committing to Charlotte last April 15. In his lone season with the 49ers, he played in all six of their games, making three starts.
Crawford shared his decision to head to Arkansas on Twitter, while thanking the coaches who recruited him:
I would like to thank every coach who has recruited me while being in the transfer portal but needless to say I plan on continuing my athletic career at UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS ❤️🖤🤍 pic.twitter.com/bjDOAWsk5M

Coming off a 3-7 campaign in their first season under head coach Sam Pittman, the Razorbacks will look to continue to make progress in the seasons to come. And Crawford could help them do that, as he should provide them with strong play up front when he’s able to take the field.
