Former Arkansas WR Barkley transferring to Montana State

Former Arkansas wide receiver Maleek Barkley announced that he is transferring to Montana State.

Barkley is the fifth Razorback to transfer from the school this offseason.

Barkley, a former running back, made the change to wide receiver as a freshman last year and redshirted. He still has four years of eligibility remaining.

Since Montana State is an FCS-level school, Barkley does not have to sit out a year.

Four other Razorbacks under scholarship have transferred since new coach Chad Morris was hired in December 2017: tight end Will Gragg (to Pittsburgh), tight end Jake Hall (to SMU), defensive back Korey Hernandez (to Iowa Western) and safety Reid Miller (to Montana). Another, center Zach Rogers, decided to end his football career and focus on a career in law enforcement.
