Just over a week after he entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, former Ohio State defensive tackle Jacolbe Cowan has found a new place to call home.

On Tuesday evening, Cowan announced his commitment to North Carolina on Twitter. He will have all four years of eligibility to use in Chapel Hill.

“This ain’t no intro, this the entree,” Cowan wrote on Twitter. “There’s no place like HOME!!!”

Cowan initially entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal just days after the Buckeyes closed out spring practice. Eight days later, he committed to Mack Brown and the Tar Heels.

Cowan played in 3 games for Ohio State last season, recording a tackle in each. He did not play during the 2020 campaign.

As a high school prospect, Cowan was ranked as one of the Top 200 overall players of the cycle. He held offers from nearly 40 programs, committing to Ohio State over other bluebloods like Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State and others.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound defensive lineman will be immediately eligible to suit up for the Tar Heels in 2022.
