“I’m really excited about Jacob,” Petrino said. “He has great speed, he catches the ball well with his hands, and he’s really a good runner after the catch.
“I just can’t say enough about how excited I am to get Jacob here and have him be a part of our program. He will be a big-time receiver here before it’s all said and done.”
