Departing Arkansas DB Myles Mason announces transfer destination
After three seasons on The Hill, Myles Mason is heading to The Boot. The departing Arkansas defensive back announced his transfer commitment to Lousiana Tech on Wednesday, via his Twitter account.
Out of Trussville, Alabama, Mason signed with the Razorbacks as part of the 2018 recruiting class. Over the last three seasons, Mason appeared in 27 games, including seven this past season. In his time at Arkansas, he recorded 58 total tackles, including 1.5 TFL.
Mason’s online bio highlights his 2020 season performances against Ole Miss and LSU, noting he recorded nine tackles in each of those games. Mason totaled 25 tackles in his true junior season.
Mason will again be considered a true junior entering the 2021 season. If he does not get an NCAA waiver to play in 2021, he has a redshirt season available to use.
