They may be at new schools and wearing different uniforms, but this year has been much the same for several former Arkansas football players.

As the 2023 season hits the halfway point, Jalen Catalon, Myles Slusher and Malik Hornsby find themselves in very familiar spots.

For the first two of that trio, injuries are unfortunately once again to blame.

Catalon has long been viewed as a potential first-round pick – if he can stay healthy. That’s proven to be nearly impossible, as he’s been limited by injuries in four of the previous five seasons, dating back to his senior year of high school.

That injury history led many to believe he’d try his hand at the NFL last offseason, but he shocked Arkansas football fans by entering the transfer portal and landing at Texas.

Despite the Longhorns seemingly being careful with him, as he played only 36.4% of their defensive snaps over the first five weeks of the season, it happened again during the Red River Rivalry — Catalon left the Oklahoma game after only eight snaps because of an injury.

The exact nature of the injury has not been revealed, but Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian described him as “day-to-day” earlier this week. The Longhorns are off this week, so there’s hope it won’t keep him out of any games, but it’s still a concern given his history.

It isn’t quite as extreme as Catalon’s, but Slusher also has a pretty tough history of injuries in college, missing multiple games with various issues during his three seasons in Fayetteville.

That has continued at Colorado. He started and played 77 snaps at nickel in the Buffaloes’ season-opening win at TCU, but then missed their next four games because of an injury suffered in that game. Head coach Deion Sanders never revealed the exact injury, but insinuated he needed a “minor surgery.”

Slusher was able to come back last week at Arizona State and played 52 snaps off the bench, posting a respectable 65.3 PFF grade. That further proves he is a good player when he can stay on the field.

The issue for Hornsby hasn’t been staying on the field, but rather getting there in the first place.

He was stuck behind KJ Jefferson at Arkansas, so he transferred to Texas State, only to get beat out by Auburn transfer TJ Finley.

Known for his electric speed, Hornsby has played some for the Bobcats, including rushing for 133 yards off the bench in a blowout win over Jackson State. Other than that game, his reps have been few and far between.

Much like the Razorbacks did by trying him as a wide receiver early last year, Texas State wants to get the ball in his hands in other ways. Head coach G.J. Kinne’s solution has been giving him reps at running back this week.

It remains to be seen if he’ll get much, if any, action at the position – after all, the wide receiver experiment didn’t last long – but it’s definitely something to keep an eye on moving forward.

Things haven’t been all bad, though. Some of the 27 scholarship players who transferred out last cycle — such as Trey Knox, Jackson Woodard and Zach Zimos — are thriving at their new homes.

Here’s a rundown of the 25 who announced destinations – defensive back Trent Gordon and wide receiver Jaquayln Crawford never did, as far as Best of Arkansas Sports can tell – as well as small updates on 18 other former Arkansas football players who previously transferred and are still active in college football.

Noticeably absent from that list is kicker Vito Calvaruso, who spent last year at Wisconsin but has since returned to Fayetteville. While he has to sit out this season because it’s his second transfer, he’ll be back in the fold in 2024.

Former Razorbacks on New Teams in 2023

*walk-on at Arkansas

P Reid Bauer — Memphis

A former walk-on who eventually earned a scholarship, Reid Bauer beat out numerous punters brought in by multiple coaching staffs and quietly put together a very solid career with Arkansas football. He ended his career with a 42.01-yard average, which just edged out Sam Irwin-Hill for seventh all-time in UA history, but he’ll likely be remembered for the pair of fakes he pulled off during the 2021 season, when he won the 2021 Peter Mortell Holder of the Year award.

Now at Memphis, Bauer is the starting punter and holder for the Tigers. His 23 punts through five games have averaged 43.1 yards, with 14 of them fair caught and eight pinned inside the 20. Pro Football Focus gives him a 75.1 punting grade, which is tied for 19th nationally — 11 spots behind Arkansas’ Max Fletcher (79.6).

S Simeon Blair — Memphis

Another former walk-on, Simeon Blair saw his role steadily increase during his Arkansas football career until he was a full-time starter and team captain last season. However, he struggled mightily, earning an abysmal 50.8 grade from PFF and allowing an SEC-high seven touchdown passes.

The Pine Bluff native transferred to Memphis for his super senior season and it seems to have been a great move. He earned a ton of praise from the coaching staff over the offseason and was elected a team captain. The Tigers are off to a 4-1 start and Blair has played a big role in that, posting a solid 69.6 PFF grade on a team-high 299 defensive snaps. 

He actually posted 70-plus grades in each of the first three games, but had sub-60 grades in the last two, including a 57.9 against Missouri. Officially, Blair has 22 tackles, including 1.5 for loss, and three pass breakups while also forcing a fumble and recovering another.

DB Anthony Brown — Purdue

Although he didn’t see the field during his lone season with Arkansas football, Anthony Brown did find his way into the headlines when he and teammate Myles Slusher were arrested for disorderly conduct in November.

Reuniting with former Arkansas defensive backs coach Sam Carter, Brown is listed as a backup safety at Purdue — which would be good as a redshirt freshman, except for the fact that he’s behind a true freshman. 

He has yet to play on defense for the Boilermakers, but has carved out a nice role on special teams, playing 50 snaps across three different units. Officially, Brown has no statistics, but PFF credits him with one tackle and one missed tackle.

*LS Francisco Castro — Holy Cross

A preferred walk-on at Arkansas, Francisco Castro’s only action in Fayetteville came in last year’s regular-season finale at Missouri when he snapped for four punts because of an injury to starter Eli Stein. He transferred down to the FCS level, but appears to have been beaten out by a freshman at Holy Cross because he has yet to appear in a game this season.

S Jalen Catalon — Texas

When he was healthy, Jalen Catalon was an All-SEC caliber safety for the Razorbacks. Unfortunately, his time in Fayetteville was derailed by a pair of season-ending shoulder injuries. Rather than declare for the NFL Draft, Catalon surprisingly entered the transfer portal.

Landing with former SWC rival Texas, he has established himself as a starter, but – as mentioned above – he hasn’t played a ton. Catalon is still considered a leader on the Longhorns’ defense, though, and has 15 tackles, 1 tackle for loss and 1 forced fumble. Pro Football Focus gives him a 60.5 grade this year, which is a far cry from the 79.4 he posted in 2021.

DE Jordan Domineck — Colorado

In a surprising about-face, Jordan Domineck decided to enter the transfer portal just a month after announcing he’d return to Arkansas as a super senior. It was a significant blow to the Razorbacks’ defense, as he tied for third in the SEC with 7.5 sacks last season.

He landed at Colorado, where he was one of 50 or so transfers brought in by Deion Sanders. Although he opened the season listed as a third-stringer, Domineck quickly rose up the depth chart and has started four of six games while playing 46.2 snaps per game – nearly double the playing time he had last year at Arkansas.

The sack numbers aren’t quite on the same level, but Domineck has still been pretty productive for the Buffaloes. Officially, he has 22 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 2 quarterback hurries and 1 fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus credits him with 13 total pressures, but gives him a 61.1 overall grade – down from last year’s 76.5 with the Razorbacks.

UPDATE (Oct. 15): While most of the country focused on Colorado blowing a 29-0 lead against Stanford on Friday, Jordan Domineck put together another solid performance. He notched his third sack of the season and nearly had another on this play:

*P Patrick Foley — UAB

A preferred walk-on at Arkansas, Patrick Foley did not appear in any games during his two seasons in Fayetteville. He is now at UAB, where he’s the starting punter and holder. At the midway point of the season, Foley has averaged 39.9 yards on 19 punts, three of which have been fair caught and two of which were pinned inside the 20.

*LB Jordan Hanna — UNLV

Another walk-on for the Razorbacks, Jordan Hanna never saw any action during his two seasons at Arkansas. He decided to follow former defensive coordinator Barry Odom and linebackers coach Michael Scherer to UNLV.

After not playing in the opener, Hanna appears to have carved out a role on special teams, playing 39 snaps across three separate units – mostly on kickoff coverage (28). Although he doesn’t have any official stats, PFF credits him with one assisted tackle and one penalty.

OL Marcus Henderson — Memphis

Despite being a highly touted prospect who committed on National Signing Day 2020 with plenty of fanfare, Marcus Henderson struggled to get on the field in three seasons at Arkansas. He was a mainstay in the two-deep, but played just nine total offensive snaps.

Even though he’s the backup right guard at Memphis, Henderson surpassed that total in his first game with the Tigers by playing 12 snaps late in the 56-14 blowout win over Bethune-Cookman. PFF gave him a 59.1 grade. However, that is his only appearance through Memphis’ first five games of the season.

QB Malik Hornsby — Texas State

One of the fastest players on the team during his three seasons in Fayetteville, Malik Hornsby struggled to be a consistent passer. In limited opportunities, he completed only 46.2% of his passes for 314 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Entering the transfer portal for a second time this offseason, Hornsby visited Nebraska before ultimately ending up at Texas State. He failed to win the job during spring ball, though, and the Bobcats brought in another transfer in TJ Finley from Auburn.

Finley got the nod in the opener and secured the starting job by leading Texas State to an upset win over Baylor. Most of Hornsby’s reps this season came in a blowout win over Jackson State, when he played 24 snaps, but other than that, he’s played 3, 4 and 3 snaps against Nevada, Southern Miss and Louisiana-Lafayette, respectively.

In those games, he has completed 3 of 5 passes for 37 yards and one interception, plus added 165 yards and four touchdowns on 14 carries. That’s an impressive 11.8 yards per carry.

RB Javion Hunt — Abilene Christian (FCS) / unknown

Despite being an ESPN four-star recruit, Javion Hunt quickly found himself behind fellow 2021 signees Rocket Sanders and AJ Green on the Arkansas football depth chart. Throw in Dominique Johnson and Rashod Dubinion and it made sense that he left the team early last season.

Although Abilene Christian announced him as a signee, Hunt is not listed on the Wildcats’ roster and it’s unclear where he ended up.

WR Ketron Jackson — Baylor

In a surprising move, Ketron Jackson Jr. entered the portal just one day after Sam Pittman mentioned him getting an opportunity to play in the slot in the Liberty Bowl. He was in line to potentially be the Razorbacks’ go-to receiver in 2023.

Instead, after catching just 21 passes for 374 yards and four scores in two seasons at Arkansas, Jackson is continuing his career at Baylor. Not only has he emerged as a starter for the Bears, but he’s also played more snaps (333) than any other Baylor receiver through six games.

Jackson also leads the Bears with 37 targets, but he’s caught only 15 of them. At 40.5%, he ranks 190th out of 191 FBS wide receivers who’ve been targeted at least 30 times in catch percentage, according to PFF. Of course, not all of that is his fault, as he has only three drops.

Those 15 receptions have totaled 235 yards and he has an over PFF grade of 60.6. He flashed against Texas a few weeks ago, catching three passes for 55 yards, but he’s made just one catch in each of Baylor’s last two games, gaining 12 total yards.

DB Khari Johnson — Boston College

A lightly recruited two-star prospect, Johnson was a versatile defensive back for the Razorbacks during his three seasons in Fayetteville, starting four games and manning both cornerback and safety.

Now at Boston College, he is listed as the co-backup at nickel on the depth chart. He’s started one game there and, most recently, one game at safety. Including two games in which he’s come off the bench, Johnson has played 98 defensive snaps and has a 61.6 PFF grade. He has 10 tackles – including half of a sack – and a fumble recovery. On special teams, he’s played another 56 snaps, with most of them coming on the kickoff coverage (31) and punt return (23) units.

RB James Jointer Jr. — Liberty

One of two running backs in Arkansas’ 2022 signing class, James Jointer Jr. found himself quickly buried on the depth chart and ultimately announced his decision to leave the team the week of the regular-season finale at Missouri.

He landed at Liberty, where he has already climbed from third-team “B” running back and getting no reps the first two weeks to co-backup “A” running back and playing in three of the last four games. Jointer has been productive when given the chance, racking up 93 yards on 17 carries – a solid 5.5 yards per carry. Pro Football Focus gives him a 74.1 grade on 38 snaps.

TE Trey Knox — South Carolina

Originally a four-star wide receiver, Trey Knox stuck around through a coaching change, dip in production and position switch before finally choosing to enter the transfer portal for his super senior season.

It took a few games, but the hype that came with him reuniting with both Dowell Loggains and Justin Stepp is starting to turn into results. Through five games, Knox is the Gamecocks’ second-leading pass catcher with 17 receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown.

A good chunk of that has come in the last two games, with four catches for 53 yards and a score against Mississippi State followed by a 7-reception, 51-yard effort against Tennessee. Even with that improved play, Pro Football Focus gives him a 60.8 overall grade on his 261 snaps this season, which is slightly lower than last year’s 64.8 at Arkansas.

UPDATE (Oct. 15): It came in another losing effort, but Trey Knox continued his recent stretch of solid play by catching a career-high eight passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in South Carolina’s 41-39 loss to Florida.

DT Taylor Lewis — Marshall

A late addition to Arkansas’ 2022 signing class, Taylor Lewis was in Fayetteville for only a couple of months before deciding to leave the program. He ultimately committed to Marshall, but was unfortunately ruled ineligible to play, according to a source, ending his career.

DB Chase Lowery — Garden City C.C. (JUCO)

After not appearing in a game as a true freshman in 2021 and then being left off the 110-man fall camp roster the following year, the writing appeared to be on the wall for Chase Lowery. He did try playing wide receiver early last year, but ended up leaving the team a few weeks into the season.

It was originally believed that Lowery was heading to Blinn C.C. in his home state of Texas, but he ended up at Garden City C.C. in Kansas instead. He’s back on defense with the Broncbusters, notching three tackles and two pass breakups in five games as a cornerback.

DT Isaiah Nichols — Purdue

In five seasons with the Razorbacks, Isaiah Nichols logged more than 1,500 defensive snaps and was an everyday starter in 2022. Rather than return to Arkansas, he chose to use his extra year of eligibility elsewhere and ultimately landed at Purdue, where he’s now a starter.

After putting up some pretty good numbers against Fresno State and Virginia Tech to open the season, Nichols’ production has dipped a bit over the last four games despite him remaining in the starting lineup. He now has 15 tackles, including three for a loss and one sack, and one quarterback hurry, although PFF credits him with nine hurries. PFF also gives him a 63.3 grade – up from the 55.1 he posted last season at Arkansas.

*LS John Oehrlein — Texas State

A walk-on, John Oehrlein was the backup long snapper for Arkansas last season and was thrust into action when Eli Stein got injured late in the season. He made snaps against Missouri and Kansas. Now at Texas State, he is the starting long snapper for both punts and field goals/PATs.

TE Erin Outley — North Alabama (FCS)

Injuries played a role in Erin Outley never really getting a chance to do much in two seasons with the Razorbacks, as he transferred without ever seeing the field.

He dropped down to the FCS ranks, landing at North Alabama, but has still yet to make his collegiate debut through six games this season and is not included in the Lions’ two-deep.

CB Keuan Parker — Tulsa

Despite steady praise from the coaching staff heading into his redshirt freshman season, Keuan Parker didn’t get significant playing time at cornerback for the Razorbacks until numerous injuries ravaged the secondary. That resulted in him getting 48 snaps against BYU.

Rather than return to Fayetteville, Parker hit the transfer portal and, after initially signing with New Mexico State, ended up returning home to play for Tulsa. An injury forced him to miss the opener and then he came off the bench in Week 2 against Washington, but he’s been a starter ever since. Despite posting 70-plus PFF grades against Northern Illinois and Temple, Parker’s overall grade is 59.7 on 222 snaps. Officially, he has 14 tackles and 1 pass breakup.

WR Landon Rogers — UNLV

Originally a quarterback coming out of Little Rock Parkview, Landon Rogers was moved to tight end soon after arriving on campus and eventually ended up at wide receiver. He appeared in only one game for the Razorbacks.

Dropping down to the Group of Five level, Rogers initially cracked UNLV’s two-deep and actually played 24 snaps in the Rebels’ opener, catching one pass for seven yards. However, he has not played since then and is no longer listed on the depth chart. It’s unclear if that is due to injury or simply a coach’s decision.

DB Myles Slusher — Colorado

The crown jewel of Sam Pittman’s first class at Arkansas, Myles Slusher made an immediate impact in Fayetteville and ultimately played more than 1,000 defensive snaps and made 15 starts over the last three seasons. Unfortunately, his career was marred by injuries and a disorderly conduct arrest.

He initially committed to Louisville out of the transfer portal, but flipped to Colorado and earned a starting spot at nickel. Unfortunately, as mentioned above, injuries have limited him to only two games in which he’s made 12 tackles, 1 tackle for loss and 1 sack. He has a 60.1 PFF grade on 129 defensive snaps.

UPDATE (Oct. 15): Also in Colorado’s double-overtime collapse against Stanford, Myles Slusher – playing his second game back from injury – notched a pass breakup in the end zone on a two-point conversion attempt.

OL Jalen St. John — UNLV

Another four-star recruit in that 2020 class, Jalen St. John followed Barry Odom to Fayetteville by flipping his commitment from Missouri to Arkansas. Even though he was regularly brought up in press conferences, he struggled to find playing time beyond special teams.

St. John’s tenure with the Razorbacks ended with a felony theft arrest the day before Thanksgiving, leading to an indefinite suspension. After entering the transfer portal, he once again followed Odom, this time to UNLV. Despite being listed as the starting left tackle on the Rebels’ depth chart, St. John’s playing time has been sporadic this year.

After missing the opener with an apparent injury, he played three snaps against both Michigan and Vanderbilt, didn’t play against UTEP and then finally significant playing time – 29 snaps – against Hawaii. Unfortunately for him, he has an abysmal 28.3 PFF grade on those 35 combined snaps.

UPDATE (Oct. 15): Jalen St. John made his first start of the season in UNLV’s dominant 45-27 win over rival Nevada.

DE Eric Thomas Jr. — Southern Miss

Despite playing sparingly on defense, Eric Thomas Jr. carved out a role for himself on special teams during his three years with Arkansas football. In fact, he never redshirted with the Razorbacks. There was also a brief moment early in his career that he got a look at tight end.

Now at Southern Miss, where he reunited with former Arkansas defensive tackle Jalen Williams, Thomas is listed as a backup strong-side linebacker on the depth chart. He still shows up as a defensive end on the roster and is considered an “edge” on Pro Football Focus, though.

According to PFF, he’s appeared in four of Southern Miss’ six games and played 39 total defensive snaps. His only statistics are 1 tackle and 1 quarterback hurry, while PFF gives him a 53.1 overall grade.

WR Warren Thompson — TCU

A top-100 recruit who originally signed with Florida State, Warren Thompson followed Kendal Briles to Arkansas as a walk-on and earned a scholarship before his first season with the Razorbacks. During his two seasons in Fayetteville, he struggled with consistency, but did catch 31 passes for 482 yards and four touchdowns before quitting the team with two games remaining last season.

No announcements were ever made, but Thompson eventually resurfaced at TCU, where he once again reunited with Briles. Even though he’s started only one of six games, he’s played the second-most snaps (213) among the Horned Frogs’ wide receivers this season and is second on the team in receiving yards, with 194 on 14 receptions.

It’s worth noting, though, that the biggest chunk of that production came against Nicholls. He caught eight passes for 92 yards against the FCS school and has just six catches for 102 yards in the other five games combined, with his lone touchdown coming against Houston. Pro Football Focus gives Thompson a 68.6 grade – up from 52.1 last year at Arkansas.

DB Jacorrei Turner — Georgia State

Most of Jacorrei Turner’s action at Arkansas — 22 of 32 total defensive snaps — came in the 2021 win over UAPB, but he did contribute on special teams. However, when he never saw the field on defense despite numerous injuries in the secondary last season, it became clear he was not in the plans moving forward.

He entered the transfer portal and ultimately landed back home in Atlanta at Georgia State. He isn’t listed on the Panthers’ two-deep, nor is he one of the 11 defensive backs who’ve played on defense. On top of that, Turner hasn’t taken any special teams snaps, either.

LB Jackson Woodard — UNLV

A former walk-on who eventually earned a scholarship with Arkansas football, Jackson Woodard packed on about 50 pounds upon his arrival to Fayetteville and actually found his way onto the field as a true freshman. He ended up playing 72 defensive snaps over three years and was a special teams ace, playing a team-high 215 special teams snaps across four units in 2022.

Woodard followed Barry Odom and Michael Scherer to UNLV and has thrived. Not only is he the Rebels’ starting weak-side linebacker, but he was elected a team captain. Through five games, he has a team-high 36 tackles, including 0.5 for loss, plus 2 pass breakups. Pro Football Focus gives him a 55.7 grade on 259 snaps. On top of that, Woodard is still playing on four special teams units, totaling 53 more snaps.

DB Zach Zimos — Louisiana Tech

A four-star linebacker coming out of high school, Zach Zimos eventually converted to safety at Arkansas. In four seasons with the Razorbacks, he didn’t play much on defense, but did contribute on special teams.

The move down to the Group of Five level has been great for Zimos, who’s now a fifth-year senior. Back at linebacker, he opened the year as a backup and played only 44 defensive snaps through the first four games, during which he played extensively on special teams (65 snaps across five units).

Over the last four games, though, Zimos’ role on special teams has diminished because he’s taken on a starting role at linebacker — and he’s thrived. He’s posted a 71-plus PFF grade in each game while averaging 53.3 snaps. That includes a 74.3 grade against Nebraska, when his nine-tackle performance was highlighted by a pair of TFLs, one of which was a sack.

For the season, Zimos has 44 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack and 1 quarterback hurry, giving him an impressive 79.9 PFF grade – a mark that’s tied for 12th among FBS linebackers who’ve played at least 200 snaps. Also according to Pro Football Focus, he’s yet to miss a tackle and has a 90.9 tackling grade, which is tied for second nationally regardless of position or snap count.
