Hannahs Transferring to Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE — Former Texas Tech guard Dusty Hannahs announced Wednesday night he is transferring to Arkansas.

Hannahs, who is from Little Rock and played at Pulaski Academy, will join the Razorbacks after two seasons with the Red Raiders. He averaged 8.4 points a game as a freshman in 2012-13 and 7.7 points a game last season.

Hannahs’ decision to transfer to Arkansas came one day after the Razorbacks revealed guard Dee Wagner was leaving the program. Wagner’s departure opened up a scholarship, which will be taken by Hannahs.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Hannahs played in 63 games with 26 starts during his Texas Tech career. He shot 36.9 percent behind the 3-point line, going 41-for-111 as a sophomore and 31-for-84 as a freshman. Hannahs also averaged 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists last season, playing 22 minutes a game for coach Tubby Smith.

He went 8-for-9, including 7-for-7 on 3-pointers, during a 25-point performance in a loss at West Virginia last season.

Hannahs must sit out the 2014-15 season, but will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015-16. His father, Gerald, played baseball at Arkansas and in Major League Baseball with the Montreal Expos and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
