Graduate transfer receiver La’Michael Pettway has departed Arkansas and is transferring to Iowa State.
Pettway scored four touchdowns among last season’s 30 receptions. He led the Razorbacks with 499 receiving yards.
“So many feelings & mixed emotions, a lot of praying went into this decision!! All of this was a lot to process but it’s reality. I’m not sure exactly what to say, but to the University of Arkansas, The community, My help academically, My parents, even relationships that I’ve lost before making this decision, I wouldn’t be who I am today without you,” Pettway said in a note on Twitter.
“To the fans some happy-some not, I appreciate you guys making my days as a Razorback some to remember. BEING THE FIRST in my immediate family to receive a college degree is more than an accomplishment of mine that I’ll forever cherish! With all of that being said @Cyclonefootball let’s make it happen.”
Pettway, who had 37 catches in 19 games for Arkansas, also reportedly considered Auburn and Oklahoma State.
