One hammer has fallen from the incidents surrounding the Razorback basketball team last month. Jacorey Williams will not return for his senior season.
“Jacorey has been a part of our program for the past three years and we wish him the best as he pursues his future away from Razorback Basketball,” said Anderson. “Members of our program carry a responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the expectations we have established for our student-athletes both on and off the court.”
Williams was one of three Razorbacks arrested last month on forgery charges. He was soon after accused of punching a bouncer at a club and pushing his girlfriend to the floor, although no charges were ever filed. Anton Beard and Dustin Thomas are the other two Hogs involved in the forgery incident, and there is not yet any word on what will happen to them.
Williams was expected to be a starter this season for the Hogs. He played in 96 games during his three-year career, averaging 3.8 points per game and 2.3 rebounds per contest. He shot 41-percent from the field and added 43 steals and 31 blocks.
Since Williams was to be a senior this season, it does not affect Arkansas' scholarship situation for the 2016 class. It does leave one spot open for this season.
