Former Arkansas receiver Mike Woods announces transfer destination
It didn’t take Mike Woods long to make his decision.
After announcing his decision to enter the transfer portal on Tuesday, the former Arkansas receiver announced he will be finishing his college career at Oklahoma.
Based on the quick turnaround of Woods’ announcements, it’s fair to wonder if Arkansas may have a tampering case to make against Oklahoma.
If you are unaware, it’s not legal for college programs to recruit players to leave their school via transfer. Programs are required to wait until a prospect has entered the transfer portal before making contact with a player.
Woods caught the first touchdown of the Arkansas spring game last weekend. He’s been unclear about why he left the program but he has stated it did not have to do with Sam Pittman or the team’s new receivers coach, Kenny Guiton.
“I think God for blessing me with my talents, health, and the position he’s given me,” Woods posted on Tuesday after announcing his decision to leave Arkansas. “Thank you to the University of Arkansas, my coaches, all of my teammates, and most certainly the state of Arkansas and the Razorbacks fans. I love you all and I am very thankful for the love I have been shown over the past three years. You guys mean so much to me. With that being said, I am entering the transfer portal as a graduate transfer. WP4L.”
Woods caught 32 passes for 619 yards and five touchdowns last season for Arkansas. His average of 19.3 yards per reception was the best among all returning receivers in the SEC this season and ranked third-best in the conference last season.
