Report: Arkansas LB will transfer from program
Another Arkansas player is leaving the program to continue his career elsewhere. Redshirt sophomore Razorbacks LB Alexy Jean-Baptiste has decided to transfer, according to Trey Biddy of Hawg Sports.
Currently listed at 6-2, 235 pounds, Jean-Baptiste was part of UA’s 2016 recruiting class under former coach Bret Bielema. A 3-star recruit rated the No. 46 outside linebacker and No. 96 recruit from Florida, the Coconut Creek product pledged to Arkansas over 25 other scholarship offers, including Kentucky and Miami.
In his redshirt sophomore seasons (2018), Jean-Baptiste appeared in only one game, the 2018 season-opener against Eastern Illinois. He redshirted in 2016 and did not play in any games in 2017.
Remaking the roster is a big part of coaching changes. Biddy notes that Jean-Baptiste will be the 24th Razorback to have left the program in the last 12 months. Chad Morris was hired in December 2017.
