FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Fresh off their best season in recent program history, the Arkansas women's basketball team just keeps going. On Saturday, grad transfer Destiny Slocum announced that she will be coming to Fayetteville to close out her college career.

Slocum began her college career at Maryland, where she was named Freshman of the Year by the WBCA. In her last two years with Oregon State, she averaged 15.2 points and 4.6 assists per game. shooting a solid 37% from deep, she should mesh perfectly with the high-flying Razorback offense.

Current Razorbacks, including head coach Mike Neighbors, were quick to take to Twitter to show off their excitement. Neighbors recruited Slocum back when she was at high school in Idaho and he was the head coach at Washington.
