FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas linebackers coach Taver Johnson saw a void early during spring practices, and it was one the Razorbacks needed to fill in the worst way.
Arkansas was in need of playmakers at linebacker following the graduation of four-year starter Jerry Franklin and an injury to starter Alonzo Highsmith that would force him to miss the rest of the spring.
The Razorbacks turned to veteran Tenarius Wright, and his transition from defensive end to middle linebacker could very well hold the key to the success of No. 10 Arkansas this season.
Wright hadn't played linebacker since his senior year of high school in Tennessee, but he had been one of the Razorbacks' top pass-rushing threats over the last three seasons.
