Jalen Harris

Arkansas Razorback guard has elected to use his graduate transfer option.  Harris transferred to Arkansas from the University of New Mexico after his freshman season. 

LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas fourth-year junior guard Jalen Harris is graduating and will enter the transfer portal, he announced via Twitter on Tuesday.

“These past 3 years as an Arkansas Razorback have been the best years of my life,” Harris said in his Twitter annoucement. “After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to enter the transfer portal as a graduate transfer for my final year of eligibility.”

Harris will have one season of immediate playing eligibility in 2020-21.

Harris (6-2, 166, Wilson, N.C.) started his last game as a Razorback, finishing with 7 points and 5 assists in 31 minutes in Arkansas’s 86-73 victory over Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament on March 11 in what was the final day of the 2019-20 season due to concerns over the covid-19 virus.

In what was mostly a reserve role playing off the bench this season for Harris, he averaged 4.2 points, 2.4 assists, and 2.1 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game while shooting 37.4% from the field (including 27.9% from 3, a vast improvement from his 11.6% effort from distance a season ago) and 74.5% from the free throw line.

Arguably his best game in ’19-20 was his 11-point, 2-rebound, 2-assist outing at Alabama on February 1 when the Hogs scrapped out an 82-78 road victory.
