Former Arkansas guard Jalen Harris announces transfer destination
Just over a week ago, Jalen Harris announced he would be leaving Arkansas for his final season of eligibility and taking advantage of the NCAA’s graduate transfer rules.
The junior Razorback guard averaged 4.2 points, 2.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game last season for Arkansas and left the program with 265 career assists, which is tied for the 18th most in program history.
Here’s the statement he released announcing his decision:
“First I want to give God glory for allowing me to fulfill my dream. These past 3 years as an Arkansas Razorback have been the best years of my life. After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to enter the transfer portal as a graduate transfer for my final year of eligibility. Thank you to my teammates who have supported me along the way. A special thank you to the coaches for believing in me and pushing me to get better each day. Lastly, thank you to all of the Razorback fans for your unwavering support. Playing in the Bud is something that I’ll cherish forever.”
Now we know where Harris will finish out his collegiate playing career as the graduate transfer announced he will play for Georgetown next season.
The Hoyas went 15-17 overall and 5-13 in Big East play last season.
