Arkansas QB Nick Starkel announces he is leaving program
After one season at Arkansas, Nick Starkel is on the move again.
The redshirt junior announced on social media that he has decided to leave the Razorbacks after meeting with new UA coach Sam Pittman.
I would like to thank both Texas A&M and the University of Arkansas for giving me an opportunity to play at this level.
After talking with Coach Pittman, I have decided to leave Arkansas and pursue playing football elsewhere whether that is professionally or at another level.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my collegiate career.
I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for me.
Starkel originally began his college career at Texas A&M, joining the Aggies in 2016 and redshirting. He played in 12 games over the 2017 and ’18 seasons before landing at Arkansas as a graduate transfer. This season, Starkel appeared in eight games for the Hogs, going 96-of-179 passing for 1,152 yards, 7 TDs and 10 INTs. The Razorbacks started a total of five quarterbacks, an SEC record, during the 2019 season.
