— Junior defensive back Byron Keaton has decided to hang up his cleats for the Arkansas Razorbacks football program.

Keaton, a redshirt junior walk-on from Camden Fairview, announced his decision on his Twitter account, saying he was retiring from football after talking to his family.

He played in 12 games as a redshirt freshman and made four tackles while starting on the kickoff team. He did not play as a sophomore.
