McGowan Granted Release
Marvin Caston, the university's compliance director, said Thursday that McGowan, a 6-foot-9 junior-to-be, asked for and was granted his release Wednesday. A native of Meridian, Miss., McGowan never found consistent playing time at Arkansas under former coach Stan Heath. As a freshman, McGowan appeared in 23 games and made one start. He averaged 0.9 points and 1.2 rebounds per game. As a sophomore, McGowan appeared in 17 games, averaging 0.6 points and 0.6 rebounds per game. McGowan, who led Meridian High to the Mississippi Class 5A state finals, nearly redshirted this past season after struggling to recover from a knee injury. His departure means that three Razorbacks from last season's team have left since Arkansas coach John Pelphrey was hired. Sean McCurdy transferred to William & Mary, and Preston Cranford transferred to Mid-America Christian. Pelphrey was unavailable for comment.
