Former Arkansas women's basketball player Jersey Wolfenbarger announced Monday she has committed to LSU out of the NCAA transfer portal.

Wolfenbarger, who was a 5-star recruit out of Fort Smith Northside in the class of 2021, announced her decision on Instagram.

She is the first addition for LSU, the reigning national champion, out of the portal.

The 6-5 combo guard entered the transfer portal when it opened March 18 after stepping away from the Razorbacks prior to the 2023-24 season. She left the Arkansas program just over a week before the Nov. 7 season opener.

Wolfenbarger was a McDonald’s All-American her senior year and the No. 7 overall prospect in the ESPN HoopGurlz recruiting rankings.

She averaged 5.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.9 minutes over her two-year career at Arkansas and was named to the SEC all-freshman team in 2021-22.
