Wonder how some his former teammates will feel about that, if they even care at all. Arkansas is going to run it right st is all game but not sure he will be the one carrying the ball. I do think having a lead blocker and running out of the I will help him some though.

I wish him well, (except when we play them of course) and appreciate his efforts with the team at USC. It just seems that things did not click for him here.

I think this is a bad move for him.

I'm assuming the desire is to show out for a season and get a NFL team to take a chance. Arkansas may have the right offense for that, but every other RB also knows that. There are a lot on the roster who are young, but may have overall better talent.

Personally, I would've went to a Big 12 school (not even sure if that was an option, but just saying).

Doesn't matter until DW figures out how to keep tackling himself to the ground.
His lack of vision, patience and toughness make it an uphill battle trying to succeed in a league with the best defenses in the country.

I think he'll play a lot on 3rd downs just for his blocking especially early in the season

Hope he balls out early next year and makes first string spot, but when they play us he trips over his own feet every down

I am all for players rights let me be up front about that.

I must say that we should not allow him to transfer to someone we play in his last year of eligibility! Chalk this one up as a loss to Arkansas right now if we allow this. DW did not have the most productive career here but he DOES know our plays our players strengths and weaknesses and is the best damn scout possible that Arky can acquire against us at this stage save for stealing a coach away.

Not pleased with this.

Could we block the transfer? Did he officially transfer to UCONN and now to Arky, or how did that all happen.

I was also curious why this was allowed to happen.

Welp.

Watch him look like a Heisman candidate against us, then become irrelevant.

(Yes, it's a State article, but it's the one that came up on Facebook)
Wouldn't be surprised one bit if Arky blows us out on our own field. No way having a guy that knows all of our players and all of our schemes and knows the in and outs of us as a team can not be a huge leg up for them on us.

I don't think we can block it.IIRC a player that has never transferred can go where they want based on a graduate exemption however if they had transferred prior to degree completion they school can block new schools because they have to sign off on a graduate waiver. I seem to remember there being 2 different situations

Grad transfers can go where ever they want. We could block him in conference if he hadn't graduated.

If DW fell to 4th string after Rico and Ty'son showed up, why exactly is anyone worried about this. If he is the starter for Arky this year, you can go ahead and put the W on the board.

I think people are more concerned that he knows our plays, signals etc.

DW would have nothing to do with wins or losses for anything he does off the field. If their film review team can't scout this offense without his input Arkansas might not win a game.

Every team know what every other team is going to try to do and how they do .. the scouting these teams do on each other is incredible

Execution is what matters

I don't think it has been mentioned, but Rawleigh WIlliams III led the SEC in rushing last year but is having to give football up due to ongoing neck issues. This came out after Arky's Spring game and put them in the market for a veteran RB.

I hate it for the young man, but it is potentially good news for us in that the better Williams will not be playing against us. And you have to like David getting another shot - he would be 4th or even 5th team (Mon Denson looked pretty good in our Spring game) if he stayed here .
