Nick Starkel roasted by Arkansas fans after revealing apparent transfer destination
Nick Starkel appears to have found his new home.
On Saturday, Starkel posted a photo to his verified Instagram account with the location tagged as San Jose State University. He captioned it “Mood all 2020 knowing God got me.”
The caption and a link to the Instagram post were posted on Starkel’s Twitter account. Former Arkansas quarterback and current Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee replied to the tweet, congratulating the departing Razorback. Starkel thanked Lashlee.

Starkel’s apparent announcement of San Jose State as his transfer destination stands out. In his fourth game as a Razorback, Starkel threw 5 interceptions in a 31-24 UA loss to SJSU.
Unsurprisingly, Hogs fans had jokes:
You’ve got to be kidding
