The Razorbacks are wasting no time taking advantage of the SEC's new rule on grad school transfers. Literally the day after that was announced at the SEC Spring Meetings, Arkansas is announcing the transfer of offensive lineman Cameron Jefferson from UNLV.

Jefferson graduated from UNLV in four years, but will be a fifth-year senior for the Razorbacks this fall because he redshirted in 2010.

He played left guard for the Rebels last season so it makes sense that he'd play the same position this fall for Arkansas as that's one of the two spots along the offensive line that did not have a clear starter coming out of spring practice.

Imagine, if you will, should Jefferson start at left guard and incoming juco transfer Sebastian Tretola starts at center, the Hogs would have a complete starting offensive line without any former walk-ons and no true freshman. Repeat, a starting offensive line made up of no walk-ons and no true freshman.  This scenario is officially in play.

Jefferson was a three-year starter at UNLV and was All-Mountain West Conference honorable mention last year and ranked second on the team in pancake blocks.

"We're thrilled to add Cameron Jefferson to the Razorback football program," said Bret Bielema. "As we continue to build our recruiting classes over the next few years, we will add players who fit academically, athletically and socially.  He comes from a football family with his father playing in the NFL and he worked his way into becoming an anchor for the line at UNLV.  We look forward to seeing the impact he will have at Arkansas."
