Arkansas Guard Julysses Nobles Leaving Razorbacks, Transfer Likely

A fourth Arkansas player has decided to exit the program early under new head coach Mike Anderson.

The trend of upperclassmen transferring out of the Arkansas basketball team early is continuing, as junior guard Julysses Nobles is leaving the Razorbacks, the school announced Wednesday.

Nobles, a 6'1", 193 lb. guard, isn't considered a NBA draft prospect. He played in 91 games in three seasons in Fayetteville, averaging 7.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists overall, and 7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in SEC play.

Three would-be seniors left the Razorbacks at the end of the 2010-'11 season, and all three -- guards Rotnei Clarke (Butler) and Jeff Peterson (Florida State) and forward Glenn Bryant (Eastern Michigan) -- ended up playing Division 1 basketball elsewhere.

Nobles is now the fourth early exit under head coach Mike Anderson, and in addition freshman B.J. Young submitted his name for consideration for the NBA Draft, but has not yet hired an agent.. Both parties issued standard statements regarding the move:

"I have enjoyed my time as a Razorback. After speaking with Coach Anderson, I feel it is time for me to move on," Nobles said.

"I appreciate everything that Julysses did for the Razorback program during his three years," Anderson said. "He is a good young man who will continue to grow and mature. I wish him the best as he pursues another opportunity to play basketball and earn his degree."
