Hogs' "Pitbull" Won't Be Ballin' Here Next Season
Coach John Pelphrey once referred to Arkansas guard Patrick Beverley as a "pitbull." The 6'2 junior to be, who led last year's NCAA team in rebounding, will not be suiting up to play ball this fall.
Though no official announcement has been made as to why, numerous sources are saying it is academics, and the press release issued by the university coincidentally coincided with the last day of summer school.
No official word from Beverley yet as to what he will do next season though there is speculation that he may end up overseas playing professionally. Another option is to utilize his redshirt and remain at the U of A, but that appears to be unlikely at this time.
Good luck, PB, wherever you end up.
