Ray Buchanan Jr Transferring From Arkansas

The redshirt freshman defensive back will find a new program, according to Bret Bielema.

The postseason roster shakeup is beginning.

At his weekly press conference today, Bret Bielema noted that redshirt sophomore Ray Buchanan Jr will transfer out of Arkansas after the season.

It's a pretty solid indication that transferring might be a good idea when the head coach publicly says "he's not in our plans.". He hasn't recorded any statistics this season and redshirted in 2012. Good luck to him in his future endeavors.

Bielema also noted there would likely be more transfers in the coming weeks, but Buchanan has already been released.

Here's his official bio from UA:

He was ranked as the 59th-best cornerback in the nation by Rivals.com. In his senior season, he made 39 tackles, two interceptions, 11 pass breakups, one safety and one forced fumble and was selected to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl held at Cowboys Stadium. Peachtree Ridge put together an 8-3 record in 2011 and advanced to the 5A state playoffs. He recorded 30 tackles in five games as a junior before suffering an injury. He was coached at Peachtree Ridge by Bill Ballard and Mark Fleetwood. Buchanan selected Arkansas after receiving interest from multiple schools, including Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Louisville and Illinois.
