Ex-Arkansas WR Kendrick Edwards transfers to Arkansas State

The Arkansas Razorbacks’ loss is the Arkansas State Red Wolves’ gain as they pick up a former SEC wide receiver. After being dismissed from the team in the middle of the 2015 season, Kendrick Edwards is continuing his career within the state and in the Sun Belt.

Edwards announced his decision to go with the Red Wolves on Twitter Wednesday night. He will be eligible to play in 2017 and will have two years of eligibility left.

Edwards had been dismissed from Arkansas in March of last year and was given permission to speak with other teams about a transfer. However, he was reinstated shortly after but later permanently dismissed in the middle of the season due to unspecified reasons.

Kendrick Edwards was a three-star member of the Razorbacks’ 2014 recruiting class. He caught eight passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in part of two seasons in Fayetteville.
