Shortly after Kelly Bryant announced his intent to transfer to Missouri on Tuesday, former Arkansas receiver Jonathan Nance did the same.

Nance, a former junior college transfer, played one full season for Arkansas. In 2017, Nance caught 37 passes for 539 yards and five touchdowns.
Nance appeared in four games in 2018 but caught just one pass for negative-2 yards before announcing his intent to transfer. He should see opportunities in Missouri’s passing game, but the cupboard isn’t barren in Columbia. While Emanuel Hall will depart, Missouri is slated to return its next four leading receivers.
Nance — 6-foot, 190-pounds, according to his Arkansas’ bio — played high school football with current Missouri receiver Richaud Floyd. He will have one year of eligibility remaining.
