Jacobson played two years at Nebraska, averaging 6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore in 2016-17.
The forward is part of a wave of transfers out of Lincoln. Since the end of the season, coach Tim Miles has lost two potential starters in Jacobson and Ed Morrow Jr., plus another two players in Jeriah Horne and Nick Fuller.
Some observers have speculated that Jacobson left Nebraska because he wanted to play power forward—not center, where he would have spent time next season had he stayed.
Jacobson, who is from Waukee, Iowa, arrived at Nebraska in 2015 as a 3-star recruit and the No. 254 player in his class, according to 247Sports’ composite ranking. He was the No. 1 player in the state of Iowa, per 247, but was not offered out of college by Iowa or Iowa State.
Jacobson will have to sit out the 2017-18 season before he is eligible to play for the Cyclones.
