Arkansas wide receiver La'Michael Pettway is moving on. Pettway announced today he is graduate transferring for his final season of eligibility.

Pettway will receive his degree in the spring and then go elsewhere. He would be eligible immediately at his next stop.

"Nothing personal, I just have to do what's best for my family and I," Pettway wrote on Twitter.

Pettway played in 11 games this season for the Razorbacks. He caught 30 passes for 499 yards and four touchdowns.

Arkansas finished 2-10 in its first season under head coach Chad Morris.

While Pettway is leaving the Hogs, Arkansas got good news yesterday when SMU quarterback Ben Hicks announced he was transferring to Fayetteville.

Hicks is the all-time leading passer for the Mustangs and figures to step in as Arkansas' starter in 2019.
