I will leave Tomorrow; my present is not longer value by Razorbacks,Max Fletcher sadly

The Arkansas football team lost another player to the transfer portal on Thursday, as HawgBeat can confirm that punter Max Fletcher will be exiting the program.

A 6-foot-5, 174-pound sophomore from Melbourne, Australia, Fletcher had a breakout season in the SEC last year after he punted 59 times for an SEC-leading 2,770 yards (46.9 average).

He was named All-SEC Second Team after pinning a fourth-best 19 punts inside the 20-yard line and was the first Arkansas punter to receive All-SEC recognition since Dylan Breeding in 2012.

As a freshman, Fletcher played in nine games and punted 38 times for an average of 37.5 yards. He booted three punts that traveled 50+ yards plus, but his debut campaign was marked with inconsistency.

Following Fletcher’s expected departure, Arkansas now sits with 77 scholarship players on the roster. The max limit a team can have is 85 scholarship players, so Arkansas can add eight more over the coming months ahead of the fall.
