FAYETTEVILLE — Former Arkansas defensive back Myles Slusher announced his transfer destination Monday.

Slusher, in a post to his Twitter account, committed to Louisville out of the NCAA transfer portal. He publicly stated plans to leave the Razorbacks’ program on Nov. 27.

Slusher’s transfer announcement came two days after he did not travel with Arkansas for its regular-season finale against Missouri and three weeks after his arrest in connection to disorderly conduct.

Pittman said after the 29-27 loss to the Tigers that Slusher quit the team on Nov. 20, the day after the Razorbacks defeated Ole Miss 42-27 to become bowl eligible. Slusher had eight tackles and one stop for lost yardage in the win.

Slusher totaled 28 tackles in 6 games this fall, and added 5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks.

He finished his Arkansas career with 93 tackles, including a career-high 50 in 2021.

At 19.2 points per game allowed, Louisville owns the nation’s No. 12 scoring defense. The Cardinals (8-5) last Saturday defeated Cincinnati 24-7 in the Wasabi Fenway Bowl in Boston.

Reid Bauer, who split punting duties with freshman Max Fletcher this season, also announced Monday that he is transferring to Memphis.

Bauer punted 23 times for an average of 44.57 yards in 2022. He averaged better than 46 yards per kick in four of seven games he appeared in.
