Former Georgia offensive lineman Jacob Hood announces he'll join Huskers
LINCOLN, Neb. -- For the third time this offseason, Nebraska has landed a Georgia transfer.
Offensive lineman Jacob Hood announced via Instagram that he intends to transfer to Lincoln.
Hood joins edge rusher MJ Sherman and tight end Arik Gilbert in transferring from the Bulldogs to the Huskers.
He also softens the blow of another offensive line transfer pulling his commitment. Former Stanford tackle Walter Rouse had announced his commitment to Nebraska earlier this month, only to revoke his pledge and transfer to Oklahoma instead.
Hood has four years of eligibility remaining after one season in Athens. He did not play any snaps as a true freshman for the Bulldogs.
The Nashville native adds instant size to the Huskers' offensive line, coming into the program as a 6'8", 350 lb. tackle.
Hood visited the Huskers over the weekend before joining his former teammates as transfer commits for new head coach Matt Rhule.
Eleven different players have announced their intentions to transfer into the Nebraska program from other schools. Additionally, wide receivers Zavier Betts and Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda came back to the Huskers after initially putting their names into the transfer portal.
Among the other transfers is another player with ties to the Peach State, former Georgia Tech Jeff Sims. The Huskers have also added three players from the Florida program: linebacker Chief Borders, defensive back Corey Collier Jr., and long snapper Marco Ortiz.
Of Nebraska's 11 transfers from outside the program, Hood is the only player with four years of eligibility remaining.
