Former Boise State quarterback Taylen Green announced Monday he is transferring to Arkansas.

Green began and finished the season as the starter at Boise State, ultimately helping lead the Broncos to the Mountain West championship. He passed for 1,752 yards, 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions and ran for 436 yards and nine scores.

The 6-foot-6, 221-pound third-year player posted on social media he was committed to Arkansas. Green’s arrival seems to signal KJ Jefferson’s departure from Arkansas. The fifth-year quarterback has another year of eligibility left but he has neither entered the transfer portal or declared for the NFL draft.

In other SEC transfer news, Mississippi landed former Arkansas linebacker Chris Paul, and Missouri added Georgia State running back Marcus Carroll, who ran for 1,350 yards and 13 touchdowns this season.
