One of the most sought-after transfers from early in the portal madness this season committed to Arkansas on Thursday afternoon.

At 6-foot-6, Toney will fill a similar role to Moses Moody as a versatile scoring and defending wing.

He averaged 14.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in 16 games, all starts, for Pittsburgh this season. Toney started 69 of the 79 games he appeared in for Pitt, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the ACC.

The Alabama native should have two years left to contribute and he'll be immediately eligible.

The news comes as Moody is expected to enter the NBA Draft, seniors will move on and on the heels of Desi Sills announcing his intent to transfer from the program.
