Arkansas Women Adding Slocum as Grad Transfer
FAYETTEVILLE – Destiny Slocum, a 2-year starting guard for the Oregon State University women’s basketball team after transferring from Maryland, announced Saturday she is joining Coach Mike Neighbors’ Arkansas Razorbacks as a graduate transfer.
Slocum, a 5-7 guard, averaged 15.4 points and 4.5 assists and 14.9 points and 4.7 assists the last two seasons at Oregon State.
Oregon State Coach Scott Rueck said, “I appreciate everything Destiny means to our program and our family. I support her decision to explore her options as she is assessing what is best long-term for her career.”
Slocum will have this 2020-2021 season of Arkansas eligibility. Slocum arrives at a key time since Arkansas All-SEC guard Alexis Tolefree of Conway, graduates leaving a shooting guard spot to fill along with returning scorers Chelsea Dungee and Amber Ramirez.
Tolefree had been projected as the 22nd pick by ESPN in Friday night’s WNBA draft. Tolefree could sign as a free agent with a WNBA team and always considered options.“We’re also talking about teams overseas,” Tolefree was quoted earlier this week.
