FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas freshman guard Jordan Phillips is tranferring from Arkansas, WholeHogSports has confirmed.

Jeff Goodman, college basketball insider and analyst at WatchStadium.com, first reported the news of Phillips' decision to leave the program.

This summer, Phillips underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus and was not fully cleared to practice until Nov. 20, but saw his first game action (10 minutes) on Nov. 21 in Arkansas' 90-68 win over Montana State.

Since, Phillips played in only six games, not playing more than nine minutes in any game, and drew three DNPs. He played two minutes and finished 0-for-1 from the floor in the Razorbacks' conference opener at Texas A&M last weekend.

Phillips is the 14th scholarship player to transfer out - including five signed by previous coach John Pelphrey - since Mike Anderson arrived in 2011.

Phillips, a Fort Worth, Texas, native, was rated the No. 11 prospect in Texas and the 37th-best shooting guard in the country by 247Sports.com.
