FAYETTEVILLE — The transfer portal for women's basketball opened March 18, and the Arkansas women's basketball team has seen activity already.

We'll update this page as more news comes.


Guard — Izzy Higginbottom

Higginbottom, a Batesville native, began her career at Missouri and spent the past two seasons at Arkansas State. As a junior in 2023-24, she was eighth in Division I scoring 22.2 points per game. Higginbottom led Arkansas State in scoring, assists (95), field goal percentage (46.2%), three-point percentage (36.7%) and free throw percentage (91.1%). Her 1.73 assist-to-turnover ratio ranked No. 101 in the nation.

Old school: Arkansas State


Guard/Forward — Saylor Poffenbarger

As a redshirt sophomore in this past season, Poffenbarger averaged 10.2 and 11.2 rebounds. Her rebounding average ranked eighth in Division I and her 9.4 defensive rebounds per game ranked second. Poffenbarger led the Razorbacks shooting 32.9% from three-point range. She transferred to Arkansas in 2021 from UConn.

New school: Uncommitted as of April 14

Guard — Taliah Scott

Arkansas standout freshman Taliah Scott announced her entry to the transfer portal the day it opened. She will undoubtedly be one of the nation's most coveted players in the portal. Scott led the Razorbacks with 22.1 points per game but missed 11 conference games due first to a back issue and later to a family emergency. The Orange Park, Fla., native was a 5-star and the No. 11 prospect in the class of 2023 per ESPN.

New school: Auburn

Guard/Forward — Jersey Wolfenbarger 

A week prior to her junior season beginning, Jersey Wolfenbarger stepped away from the program. She entered the portal the morning it opened March 18. Wolfenbarger, a former 5-star and No. 7 prospect in the class of 2021, averaged 5.6 points and 3.8 rebounds over two seasons at Arkansas. 

New school: LSU
