ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia freshman Jeremy Jacob has decided to
transfer after a foot injury limited him to only six games as a
freshman. Georgia coach Dennis Felton said Monday the 6-foot-7 Jacob, from Baton Rouge, La., wants a fresh start at another school "where he can play a more prominent role than he believes he will play at Georgia."

Jacob averaged 5.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in the first six
games of the 2007-08 season before suffering a stress fracture in
his left foot. He missed the rest of the season and was granted a
medical hardship by the NCAA, leaving him with four years of
eligibility.
