Ryan Mallett is a Razorback

According to multiple sources, Rivals 5 Star QB Ryan Mallett has transferred to the University of Arkansas. After visiting the school and meeting with Coach Petrino late last week, he is now reported to be enrolled and attending classes today. This is big news for Razorback fans and the new ball coach. Mallett, a 6'7" QB from Texarkana, was a U.S. Army High School All-American. He transferred from Michigan after coach Lloyd Carr retired and was replaced by Rich Rodriguez.
Due to NCAA rules, Mallett will have to sit out the 2008 season. However, he will be able to participate in practices. Look for Mallett to start for the Razorbacks in 2009 after current starting QB Casey Dick graduates. He will be competing for the starting position with current Razorback Nathan Dick and Razorback commitments Jim Youngblood and Tyler Wilson.
