Arkansas is down a linebacker heading into the offseason.
Redshirt freshman LB Tyler Pennington announced he was transferring on social media Sunday.
“After a lot of thoughts and prayers, I have decided it is in my best interest to part ways from the University of Arkansas,” Pennington wrote. “I will continue to pursue my passion of playing at another university. I have met some incredible people here at Fayetteville and have loved everything about the town! Arkansas will always hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to cheer on my Hog brothers! I’d like to thank the U of A coaches and my teammates for always supporting me. This was a very tough decision but I could not be more excited for my future!!”
The Cary, Illinois, native will have three years of eligibility remaining.
