Former University of Kansas receiver Chase Harrell has left the Big 12 for the SEC.

Two months after making public his decision to leave KU, Harrell announced Tuesday his plans to enroll and play football at Arkansas.

“Coming for everything this year,” Harrell tweeted, while thanking Razorbacks head coach Chad Morris and members of the Arkansas staff.

A difficult off-season for the 6-foot-4 receiver that included witnessing his older brother, Cole, murdered this past December, and an arrest on suspicion of DUI in March, led to Harrell moving on from the Jayhawks and head coach David Beaty granting him a release.

Harrell, who first arrived at KU in the spring of 2015, would have been a redshirt junior this coming fall. He first stated in April his plans to graduate this summer and move on.

In what proved to be his final season at Kansas, Harrell played in all 12 games in 2017. He caught 25 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.

Chase was one of my favorite players. The guy just looks like an NFL receiver. Hopefully things go well with him at Arkansas. Also, now that he's gone I look for Evan Fairs to step up and have a big year.

Just think how awesome Chase would have been if he had an Off. Coord. who was smart enough to get a guy with his talents more involved in the offense -- AND if he had a QB who could hit him in stride. Hell most of his catches last year were him going up and out after terrible throws and him making amazing catches -- but he wasn't able to YAK. Wouldn't be surprised if he is All SEC this year. Siiiggghh....
