Julius Coates started in Arkansas’ season opener against Georgia and never quite lived up to his billing out of East Mississippi CC as a difference-making pass rusher.

He made the announcement Friday on social media.

Coates made seven appearances with 18 tackles, including three for loss and two sacks, while also notching two quarterback hurries and a forced fumble.

His last appearance was against Missouri where he played pretty well, then missed the Alabama finale for non-football reasons and Sam Pittman had announced he would not be with the team for the Texas Bowl against TCU that was cancelled.

Coates is just the fifth non-senior who has decided to leave Arkansas via the transfer portal over the last few months.

Running back A’Montae Spivey did so during the season, while wide receiver Shamar Nash, cornerback Jarques McClellion and safety Myles Mason waited until the offseason.
