A.J. Turner among four Hogs seeking transfer

FAYETTEVILLE (WholeHogSports.com) — Four football players are seeking to transfer, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said in a sitdown interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Tuesday.

Linebackers A.J. Turner and Myke Tavarres and running back Nate Holmes are seeking transfer options, Bielema said. The first-year coach said earlier this year cornerback Ray Buchanan Jr. was also looking to transfer.

Turner, Holmes and Buchanan were members of the Razorbacks' 2012 signing class, while Tavarres signed prior to 2013. Turner missed the 2013 season with a wrist injury. The Lepanto native was named to the Southeastern Conference's All-Freshman team in 2012 after recording 53 tackles, including 12 in the season finale against LSU.
