The BYU Cougars are on the receiving end of some B1G transfer help in the secondary for the 2014 season.
The football program announced in a release Thursday that defensive back Harvey Jackson has signed with the football program and will continue his playing career with the Cougars. As Jackson has already received his degree from NU, he will be eligible to play immediately in 2014.
“Harvey is an experienced player and a mature individual with excellent character,” head coach Bronco Mendenhall said in a statement. “He will join our program after graduating in construction management with a business minor. He is a great fit for BYU on and off the field.”
Jackson played in 35 games the past three years, starting four of those contests. He started the first three games of the 2013 season before losing that job.
In 2011, Jackson, a three-star member of the Cornhuskers’ 2010 recruiting class, was an Academic All-Big Ten selection
