Scout.com has a free article on Jeremy Jacob.
The highlights were the comments from Jacob's current JUCO coach, and the update on Jacob's recruiting. In scrimmages during the pre-season, Jacob has played tough defense and scored well in the post.
As for his recruiting, Jacob lets it be known that Arkansas is his favorite. I had thought earlier that he would have been UAB-bound, but Arkansas impressed Jacob with the facilities, and his JUCO coach knows Pelphrey well.
Arkansas could be a great place for Jacob, but I don't get it. Georgia defeated Arkansas in Arkansas in 2006/2007, and in 2007/2008, Felton dispatched them twice, beating them by 13 at home and by 9 in the SEC Tournament.
Arkansas did bring in talent in its 2008 recruiting class, but they lost 5 players to graduation, and a sixth, Patrick Beverly, was dismissed from the team. It's not like Pelphrey will be easier to play for than Felton.
Why put your college career back another year by transferring to a JUCO and then going to a team that is arguably worse than the one you left? Perhaps it was the issue of playing time, but something else must be involved here.
