In looking at our men's T&F roster I noticed that our top decathlete was no longer on it. A little checking revealed that he has transferred to Arkansas.

Pretty big loss for the program, as he is a legit contender for the 2020 Olympics. Can't blame him for going to a program that is historically one of the best in the NCAA (although they have been down a bit in recent years compared to their glory days when they were winning national championships). Best wishes to Marcus, and hope to see him in the red, white and blue again soon, representing the USA in Tokyo. :usa
