FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas forward Reggie Chaney has put his name in the transfer portal on June 15th, and a week later, has found a new home: Houston. 

Chaney appeared in 63 games in two years as a Razorback, starting nine times. He becomes the second Hog to use the portal this off-season, after Jalen Harris, who wound up at Georgetown. 

Chaney appeared in every game as a freshman, making two starts and finishing third on the team in rebounding. He missed multiple games last year with undisclosed issues, but recovered to make seven starts, including against Missouri, when he finished with a career high 17 points and 11 rebounds.

All in all, Chaney averaged 4.8 points and 3.4 rebounds a game during his Razorback career. Arkansas needed one player to leave, be it Chaney or someone else, in order to fit under the scholarship limit next season.
