UNLV OL Cameron Jefferson transfers to Arkansas after APR ban
Arkansas's offensive line got a substantial boost when three-year UNLV starter Cameron Jefferson elected to transfer.
The Razorbacks announced Saturday that former UNLV offensive lineman and fifth-year senior Cameron Jefferson will play for the Razorbacks in 2014. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound Jefferson started three seasons for the Runnin' Rebels, mostly at left guard, earning honorable mention All-Mountain West honors in 2013.
“We're thrilled to add Cameron Jefferson to the Razorback football program,” Bret Bielema said in a statement. “He comes from a football family with his father playing in the NFL and he worked his way into becoming an anchor for the line at UNLV. We look forward to seeing the impact he will have at Arkansas.”
The Rebels are ineligible for a bowl game in 2014 after failing to meet the NCAA's minimum APR standard, with the NCAA deciding -- a la its policy following postseason bans for the likes of Penn State and USC -- that UNLV players could transfer with immediate eligibility.
As it turned out, Jefferson likely would have been eligible at Arkansas this season anyway; the SEC lifted its Jeremiah Masoli-inspired ban on graduate transfers Friday, one day before Jefferson's announcement. The Las Vegas native will graduate from UNLV this summer.
