FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – After struggling throughout much of his freshman season, Arkansas guard Jimmy Whitt is transferring from the program.

“After meeting with Jimmy, although I don’t agree with his decision, I respect it,” Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. “I had the privilege of watching Jimmy grow up over the years and it was a pleasure coaching him during his freshman season. We wish him and his family the best as he pursues another institution to continue his collegiate career.”

Whitt averaged 6.1 points while playing in all 32 games for the Razorbacks and played just more than 17 minutes per game.

“I have enjoyed my experience at the University of Arkansas, but I feel like it’s time for me to make a change,” Whitt said. “This was a very difficult decision for me and my family. I wish the Razorbacks and my teammates nothing but success in the future.”
