Tyler Wilson Returns to Arkansas For Senior Season

Posted: Updated:

The Arkansas Razorbacks will be a team to watch in the SEC next season, after their star QB Tyler Wilson announced today that he's returning to the Hogs for his senior season.

Wilson was one of the top quarterback prospects in the SEC this past season.  With Wilson's return, Arkansas should be ranked in the top ten to start next season.

Here's what he had to say about making the decision to return to the University of Arkansas:

"I have decided to stay at Arkansas for the 2012 season because I am extremely excited for what this team has the opportunity to accomplish and to finish earning my degree. After the feedback I received, the decision was difficult to make. Ultimately, the chance to complete my academics and play one more season as a Razorback were  compelling reasons for me to remain in Fayetteville. This past year was great for us with 11 wins and a top-five finish and we want to build on that. The group of players we have returning has high expectations and wants to work hard to compete for championships. Although my goal is to play in the NFL, I believe I can benefit greatly from another year of working with Coach (Bobby) Petrino and Coach Paul Petrino. I am excited to be able to spend one more season at a university where the leadership shows a tremendous amount of support and the passion of the fans is the best in the country."
