FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas has granted scholarship releases to two more players from its football program in offensive lineman Cam Feldt and linebacker Austin Moss, Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino said Thursday through a team spokesperson.
The players are the fourth and fifth to be released this week as coaches perform annual scholarship evaluations. Wide receiver Lance Ray, kicker Eddie Camara and tight end Ryan Calender have also been granted releases from the program.
Arkansas is also working toward granting offensive lineman Colby Berna a medical hardship, which would end his playing career. Berna, a Fayetteville native, has struggled with shoulder problems since high school and didn’t play during his two seasons on campus.
Feldt, rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com coming out of Pilot Point High School in Texas, redshirted last season and was expected to be a reserve in 2011.
Moss, a Rockwall, Texas, native, was buried on the depth chart during the spring. He was used primarily on special teams at Arkansas, finishing his career with 17 tackles and a fumble recovery.
The releases free up scholarships for incoming signees and could be potentially used for veteran walk-ons.
Arkansas might also add a pair of late signees to its 2011 class. Junior college offensive lineman Chris Stringer verbally committed to the Razorbacks Thursday morning and JUCO linebacker Robert Atiga will visit the school this weekend.
