Another Razorback Transfers
The Morning News/Razorback Central
Posted Jan 13, 2009
One more Arkansas football player won’t be returning to the team in 2009.
Defensive end Brian Christopher, a freshman who redshirted the 2008 season, has left the program according to his mother. Lolittle Christopher confirmed Tuesday that her son has transferred, but declined to say where or discuss the reason for his departure after one season.
“I’d rather not say,” she said. “I’d just rather not comment on that. You can try to get in touch with Brian, but I’m not commenting on that right now.”
Christopher could not be reached for comment.
Arkansas didn’t provide details, either, but coach Bobby Petrino issued a statement on Christopher’s departure.
“It is unfortunate that Brian will not be able to continue his career at the University of Arkansas,” the statement said. “He has been a valued member of the Razorback football program. We wish him the best in his future academic and athletic pursuits.”
The 6-foot-2, 245-pound defensive end, a former Camden Fairview High standout, becomes the fifth player known to have left the team.
Quarterback Nathan Dick transferred to Central Arkansas, safety Rashaad Johnson left for Northeastern State and running back Chip Gregory is believed to be enrolled at Texas Southern.
In addition, tight end Andrew Davie decided to enter the 2009 NFL Draft as a junior.
