Report: Arkansas named as frontrunner to land big-name graduate transfer QB
The Arkansas Razorbacks seem to be in the market for a graduate transfer QB once again after losing Ben Hicks to graduation and Nick Starkel to San Jose State.
One of the biggest names on the market is Houston’s D’Eriq King, who entered the NCAA transfer portal this week.
Will he reunite with former OC Kendal Briles at Arkansas? Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle reports that, while Miami has entered the mix, Arkansas is still the frontrunner for King:
Sources: #Miami has contacted Houston quarterback D'Eriq King, who announced Monday he will enter the transfer portal. Arkansas is regarded as the front-runner but King has not ruled out other schools.

Briles and King had a lot of success together at Houston, but it remains to be seen if they’d be able to match that success at Arkansas.
Still, it should be exciting for Arkansas fans that King is considering a move to Fayetteville.
