The race for Ricky Town is on. After deciding to transfer from USC over the weekend, the freshman quarterback is looking for his new school.

According to multiple reports, Town visited Arkansas on Wednesday.

Florida is believed to be in the mix for Town, who has a connection with Gators offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier. As the offensive coordinator at Alabama, Nussmeier was the lead recruiter for Town and got a commitment from him in 2013.

No word on if Town will make a visit to Gainesville yet.
