 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Even as he tweeted thanks to Razorbacks fans and coaches of the past Chad Morris regime and current Sam Pittman staff "for the best three years of my life," feelings echoing that old Van Winkle quote likely lurk somewhere within Rakeem Boyd. Not for his first two Arkansas years. This current one. Especially if he follows social media. As a senior captain taking the "opting out" route the NCAA made easier in these coronavirus times, Boyd by some on message boards and presumably Twitter, too, is called "quitting on his team" with two games to play. Boyd tweeted Tuesday he no longer plays for the Razorbacks and now solely prepares for the spring's NFL draft.

Blame him some do, but these are different days. They were even before covid with the transfer portal. Before bemoaning this generation of players lacking loyalty, how about so many recent years bowl teams with interim coaches because the head coach jumped ship to a better job? Or college coaches pressuring high school seniors to graduate early and enroll in January, though perhaps they pledged to play high school basketball, baseball or run track. A running back's career seems most injury risked. Boyd risked it for Arkansas likely at a lower draft cost. A nicer remembered Razorbacks legacy, of course, had he fully stayed the course. But wish Rakeem Boyd well. Simply by returning he's already taken one for the team. - Northwest Arkansas Times
