Razorbacks land former A&M quarterback Nick Starkel

Arkansas continues spring practice, Morris talks Nick Starkel

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - The Arkansas football team learned they would be gaining another quarterback to the add to the depth chart. Former Texas A&M signal caller Nick Starkel announced via Twitter that he would be headed to Fayetteville.

Starkel was just 15-22 for 169 yards and a touchdown pass in four games for the Aggies in 2018. His first season in College Station in 2017, Starkel totaled nearly 1,800 yards passing and 14 touchdown passes.

He will be eligible to play immediately during the 2019 season.

Arkansas head coach Chad Morris was asked about Starkel after Tuesday’s practice.

“He’s got an extremely strong arm, that’s one of the things that really stands out,” Morris said. “Got good size, but got a strong arm, and obviously he’s played in this league. And I think everybody that has been around him just talks about the quality of the person that he is. As you bring guys into your program, you want to bring the right fit into your program. That brings great competition in that room, and we’re trying to improve every room.”
