Former SMU quarterback Ben Hicks is visiting Arkansas on Saturday.

Hicks announced his intentions to leave the Mustangs as a graduate transfer on Dec. 12. He will have one year of eligibility at his new school.

He started 33 games for SMU and was the program's career leader in passing with 9,081 yards and 71 touchdowns.

Hicks was recruited to SMU by Arkansas coach Chad Morris and played three seasons for Morris and offensive coordinator Joe Craddock. He's expected to leave Fayetteville on Sunday.

Ty Storey, who started nine games last season, entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal and is exploring transfer options.

Arkansas has three scholarship quarterbacks on campus in sophomore Daulton Hyatt, freshman Connor Noland and freshman John Stephen Jones. Freshman KJ Jefferson is expected to report to Fayetteville for the first session of summer school.
