Michael Jacobson is transferring from the Nebraska men's basketball program & will leave the school after the spring semester. 


“After much deliberation, I have made the decision to transfer,” Jacobson said. “This was a very difficult decision for me, but I feel it is necessary at this time. I want to thank the Nebraska fans for their incredible support. I also want to say thank you to Coach Miles and his staff, my teammates and the Athletics Department. I will always be grateful for the opportunity I was given here at Nebraska.”


“I support Michael in his decision to transfer,” head coach Miles said. “Although I am disappointed, we’ve appreciated his hard work in our program over the last two seasons. Michael and I have had numerous discussions regarding his role and what position he would be playing for us in the future. After a lot of thought, Michael decided to find a new school.  I understand and respect his decision.”


Jacobson started the last 56 games in a row for the Huskers averaging 6.0 points & 6.2 rebounds per game this past season. 


“Although we have lost some depth in the frontcourt, we are excited about the players already in our program who give us great options in Jordy Tshimanga, Isaiah Roby, Jack McVeigh and Isaac Copeland,” Miles said. “We have been pleased with our spring workouts and a renewed commitment by our guys to build a culture that leads to success for Husker Basketball.”
