BELTON, Texas- On Thursday, Concordia-Nebraska offensive lineman Jarryd Doucet announced his decision to transfer to UMHB, beginning in the spring.
Doucet, a 6’3, 270 lb freshman from Beaumont, Texas, spent last season as well as the first part of the 2021 season on Concordia-Nebraska’s roster, appearing in one game. That lone appearance came on Sept. 11 in a 61-21 win for CUNE, a NAIA program.
Prior to his collegiate career, Doucet starred on the offensive line at West Brook High School. He helped the Bruins to a deep playoff run during the 2018 season, his junior year, that ended in a 35-34 loss to Longview in the 6A Div. II State Championship Game. He played left tackle as a junior before starting at right tackle his senior year. Doucet’s tremendous speed and agility allowed him to contain opposing defensive ends, and greatly helped the West Brook passing game. A look at his high school film also reveals a solid run blocker.
Since high school, Doucet has put on 65 pounds and grown an inch, only increasing his strength, especially as a run blocker. In his lone collegiate appearance at CUNE, Doucet made a handful of key blocks, including one upfield that resulted in a 10-yard gain.
Doucet comes to Belton with four years of eligibility remaining.
