Wisconsin lands transfer Jahcobi Neath from Wake Forest

Guard Jahcobi Neath will transfer to Wisconsin from Wake Forest to join the Badgers’ basketball team next season.Neath, a 6-foot-3 guard from Toronto, played two seasons for the Demon Deacons, appearing in 50 games and starting nine.”We were looking to add another guard to our roster and Jahcobi checked a lot of the boxes for what we were looking for,” Badgers coach Greg Gard said in a statement.Gard added, “We have seen that the college game is moving more and more towards using more versatile lineups. Having backcourt depth is essential in today’s game, and Jahcobi can give us not only more depth at the point guard position, but he is also versatile enough to play off of the ball and allow us to play multiple guards.”
