The Razorback football team lost its eighth player to the transfer portal this season Wednesday when freshman wide receiver T.Q. Jackson announced his intention to transfer out of Arkansas on Twitter.

Jackson was a part of former head coach Chad Morris’s high-profile 2019 receiving class but only played in three games last season, catching one pass for two yards against Texas A&M.

Besides the departure of Morris, Jackson also highlighted his mental health as a key factor in his decision to transfer.

“At the end of the day, I have to do what’s best for me, and as a man you have to do that," Jackson wrote in the tweet. "I have been battling with depression, and a lot of problems for some time here now and it’s best I find a new home where I can get back to my old self."

The former four-star recruit out of Jefferson, Texas, also mentioned he will be finishing his spring classes at Arkansas before leaving.

In high school, Jackson was rated the No. 41 overall player in Texas as well as the No. 42 wide receiver in the country by Rivals.

Seven other players have transferred out of the football program since the end of the 2019 season: OL Silas Robinson (Texas State), QB/WR Daulton Hyatt (West Alabama), DL Collin Clay (Oklahoma State), QB Nick Starkel (San Jose State), WR Jordan Jones, TE Grayson Gunter (Southern Mississippi) and DB Brenden Young.
