Brandon Mitchell Leaving Arkansas

Posted: Updated:

Four Razorbacks including Quarterback Brandon Mitchell have been granted their releases from Arkansas.  Coach Bielema released this statement.

"After concluding post-spring meetings with every member of our team, Austin Flynn, Defonta Lowe, Keante Minor and Brandon Mitchell have been granted their release from the University of Arkansas football program. Through meetings with these student-athletes, a determination was made that it would be mutually beneficial for them to pursue their goals elsewhere. Brandon is on track to earn his degree this summer and utilize the NCAA graduate transfer exception to play immediately this fall. We fully support them and wish them all the best moving forward."

Flynn and Lowe had already been kicked off the team, while Minor had not cracked the post spring two deep.  Mitchell was set to go into the fall as the back-up quarterback behind Brandon Allen.  There was also talk of Mitchell playing another position in the fall.
