FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas has added former Arkansas State and Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College cornerback Jerry Jacobs.
Jacobs, 5-11, 204, announced his decision to transfer to Arkansas on Twitter Friday.
In 2019, Jacobs had 21 tackles, including 16 solo, a tackle for loss and two pass breakups for Arkansas State. That followed a season in Jonesboro when he had 32 tackles, including 25 solo, three tackles for loss, four interceptions, eight pass breakups and a forced fumble.
He is immediately eligible as a grad transfer. He’s from Kennesaw (Ga.) South Cobb High School and also was with Rion Rhoades at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College. As a freshman for Rhoades in 2017 he had 39 tackles, including 32 unassisted, 6.5 for loss, four interceptions and 12 pass breakups.
