Hogs get another specialist transfer, landing former Michigan punter

| allHOGS •

Former Michigan punter George Caratan is transferring to play for Arkansas and is the second specialist coming in, joining kicker A.J. Reed from Duke in what is going to be a large group.

Caratan spent two seasons with the Wolverines and never punted in a game. He is expected to be immediately eligible.

Caratan is the sixth player to transfer to Arkansas this offseason, joining quarterback Feleipe Franks (Florida), linebacker Levi Draper (Oklahoma), defensive tackle Xavier Kelly (Clemson), defensive back Jerry Jacobs (Arkansas State) and Reed.

All of the transfers are expected to be immediately eligible and play for the Hogs this fall.

The punter’s room now includes former transfer Sam Loy, who transferred from Vanderbilt after moving there from Colorado. Loy handled most of the work last year with a 39.45-yard average (56-2,210 yards).

Also in the group are redshirt-sophomore Reid Bauer and redshirt-sophomore Matthew Phillips.
