Unfinished business: Senior linebacker Hayden Henry announces return to Arkansas for 2021 season
The Razorbacks just received another commitment from a veteran player ready to return to the program for one more season.
On Tuesday, senior linebacker Hayden Henry announced he’s coming back for his “Grand Finale” and posted a “See You in 2021” graphic to reveal his decision to return for one final season in Fayetteville.
For his college career, Henry has 83 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and has defended three passes. He is a key contributor for the Razorbacks on special teams.
Henry joins a long list of Razorbacks planning to return for one more season in Fayetteville as First-Team All-SEC linebacker Grant Morgan, starting offensive tackles Myron Cunningham and Ty Clary, receiver De’Vion Warren, tight end Blake Kern, running back/receiver T.J. Hammonds, defensive back Deon Edwards and defensive lineman Dorian Gerald have all made the decisions to return for another senior season.
How is it possible for all these seniors to return for another season? They have this option after the NCAA allowed all players to take a free season of eligibility in 2020.
All returning seniors won’t count against a team’s 85-man scholarship limit, giving teams like Arkansas some much-needed depth heading into the 2021 season.
