Defensive end Jordan Domineck announced his transfer destination early Sunday morning.
Domineck has committed to Colorado, according to a post to his Twitter account. He transferred to Arkansas from Georgia Tech ahead of the 2022 season.
Domineck stated plans to transfer from the Razorbacks’ program on Jan. 2, just more than one month after indicating he would return for the 2023 season.
The Lakeland, Fla., native had 34 tackles, 9.5 for lost yardage, 7.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery for Arkansas last season. According to Pro Football Focus, Domineck finished with the Razorbacks’ fourth-best overall defense grade (76.5) and played 316 defensive snaps.
Domineck had a strip-sack and recovery in the fourth quarter of the season opener against Cincinnati. He also forced a fumble against LSU and had a season-high 7 tackles and 2.5 sacks against Missouri State.
The end tallied a sack in Arkansas’ 55-53 triple-overtime win over Kansas in the Liberty Bowl.
Offensive lineman Marcus Henderson has also committed to Memphis, according to a post to his Twitter account.
He is the third player on the Razorbacks’ 2022 roster to commit to the Tigers since the end of the regular season, joining punter Reid Bauer and safety Simeon Blair.
Henderson entered the transfer portal one week before Arkansas played in the Liberty Bowl. He was listed as the team’s backup center for the game.
The Memphis native battled a pectoral injury in preseason practices and did not appear in a game last season. Henderson initially signed with the Razorbacks over scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and other programs.
