The Nebraska football team has added a third player from the University of Georgia.

Bulldog transfer offensive lineman Jacob Hood announced his commitment to the Huskers after a visit to Lincoln this past weekend.

The 6-foot-8, 350-pound Hood spent just one season in Athens before entering the transfer portal on Jan. 13. He is the second transfer portal player NU has added on the offensive line, joining Arizona State center Ben Scott. Nebraska also signed five high school players in its offensive line class.

Hood was one of four Bulldog players the Huskers hosted from the portal, joining edge rusher MJ Sherman and tight ends Arik Gilbert and Brett Seither. Both Sherman and Gilbert also committed to Nebraska along with Hood.

Matt Rhule’s connection to the Bulldogs appears to be defensive backs coach Fran Brown, who played under Rhule at Western Carolina and coached for him at both Temple and Baylor.

In one season at Georgia, Hood did not see any action for the Bulldogs.

He was a consensus three-star prospect according to On3 and the 17th-best player in the state of Tennessee for the class of 2022.

Hood becomes the 11th transfer player Rhule and his staff has added to the Husker roster since taking over.
