Youngblood eyeing return to QB at UCA

CAMDEN, Ark. (AP) - Jim Youngblood says he's eager to try to play right away at Central Arkansas - and at quarterback.

Youngblood is transferring from Arkansas to play for the Bears, who are in the Football Championship Subdivision. That means Youngblood won't have to sit out a year before being eligible.

Youngblood said Thursday that Central Arkansas was the first school to offer him a scholarship when he was recruited. Youngblood was a standout prep quarterback at Camden Fairview but was recently listed as a tight end on Arkansas' roster.

He is hoping to return to his old position.
