Arkansas Lands Indiana Transfer Justin Smith

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Indiana Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana Transfer Justin Smith announced via his Twitter page that he will be joining the Razorbacks.

The 6-7, 230 pound forward has started the past 2 seasons for Indiana. Smith will eligible immediately with 1 year to play.

He averaged 10.2 point, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 49.2% from the field. The forward comes to Fayetteville with a lot fo experience. This will add some needed depth to the forward position for the Razorbacks.

Smith is the 3rd graduate transfer to join the Hogs this offseason joining Jalen Tate and Vance Jackson.

At this time, Arkansas has 14 players on scholarship for the 2020-21 season. NCAA allows for 13 scholarship players. So what does that mean for the roster? Will Isaiah Joe stay in the NBA Draft? Or will another player transfer out? Time will tell.
