With the ever increasing transfer market, Arkansas got in on the action with a late addition to the roster. Former Kansas receiver Chase Harrell announced today he will be joining the Hogs.
Coming for Everything This Year! Thank you @coachchadmorris @coachcraddock @coachjstepp @_kbolden for the opportunity... Y’all getting a Man on a Mission #HammerDown #WPS #TunnelVision pic.twitter.com/gRoLuGAxp0— dec. 17 (@1ChaseHarrell) June 12, 2018
Harrell brings tight end size (6’4”, 215 lbs.) with a 4.47 40 time to the roster, and give Chad Morris another weapon on offense. He graduated from KU in three years and redshirted his freshman year so he will have two years of eligibility with the Hogs.
Last season with the Jayhawks he was third on the team with 25 catches and 211 receiving yards. He had three touchdowns that season, against SE Missouri, Ohio, and Texas. The grab against SEMO in the season opener was definitely one for the highlight reel.
Harrell said multiple schools from major conferences were after him, but the Houston native opted to come to Fayetteville since it was both close to home and he wanted to play in Morris’ offense. He should give some more versatility to the receiving corps with his size. Harrell plus utilizing the tight ends can give the Razorbacks many options in the red zone this season.
