— Arkansas defensive lineman Jake Hall is transferring as a graduate student to SMU, he told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Hall, a graduate of Springdale Har-Ber, posted 11 tackles and one sack and made one start in 2017. The 6-5, 253-pounder, who also worked as an offensive lineman for the Razorbacks, played in 25 games and had 13 tackles.

Hall's departure is believed to put the Razorbacks at the limit of 85 scholarship players for 2018. He will be eligible to play immediately for the Mustangs under first-year Coach Sonny Dykes, who replaced current Arkansas Coach Chad Morris in December.

Hall is the fourth scholarship player to transfer since the end of Arkansas' spring practice. Will Gragg, Korey Hernandez and Reid Miller have not announced their transfer destinations.

Hall is the second member of Arkansas' 2014 signing class to transfer to SMU, along with quarterback Rafe Peavey who made the move in the summer of 2016.
