Next season’s basketball team was always going to look drastically different with all of the graduating seniors. Now throw in two potential starters transferring and things are even more uncertain.
Mike Anderson announced today that CJ Jones and Darious Hall will be leaving the program.

“Darious and C.J. have decided to transfer from our program. I appreciate them coming to the University of Arkansas and wish them the best moving forward.”
Jones averaged 6.3 points per game and Hall averaged 5.1, and found his way into the starting lineup some. Jones was expected to be the main three point threat for the Hogs next season. Now with those two leaving Arkansas only has one player who has made a three pointer in a game, and that’s walk-on Jonathan Holmes’ two victory cigars.
For Arkansas, they had 10 players average more than 10 minutes per game last season. Now just two of those, Daniel Gafford and Adrio Bailey are returning. Arkansas may have a deep recruiting class coming in with six current commits, but it looks like Mike Anderson’s work with it isn’t quite done yet.
