2013 (Junior): Jeriann Okoro led the team in assists with eight, while picking up three goals of her own. Two of her three scoring performances on the season were game-tying goals. Three of Okoro’s assists set up for the game-winning goal late in the season leading up to the SEC Tournament. She recorded two assists in the first round match against Missouri to help the Razorbacks pick up their first postseason win in 17 years. Okoro made 13 starts in 22 appearances her junior year.

2012 (Sophomore): Jeriann Okoro played in 19 games, starting three and playing 974 minutes. She started in three road games against SEC opponents; Tennessee, Florida, and Missouri. Okoro had four goals on the season, including the game winner in a 1-0 victory over Texas. Okoro also scored Arkansas’ lone goal in a 1-1 tie with South Carolina, contributed a goal to a 3-1 win over Alabama, and had one goal in a 3-2 losing effort against LSU. She also had an assist in a 2-1 win at Missouri. She finished the season with nine points, good for third on the team, and also was third on the team with her four goals.

2011 (Freshman): One of the fastest players on the team, Okoro was a key part of the offense as a freshman. She played in all 18 games and made 17 starts, and her 1,305 minutes ranked seventh on the club. Okoro was fourth on the team with 25 shots and seven shots on goal for a .280 shots on goal percentage. She was also tied for fourth with one goal, tied for third with an assist and fourth with three points. She came off the bench in the first game of her career, the 2-1 season-opening win over SMU, but was a key factor with the assist on Kailey Anders’ game-winning goal. Okoro and Anders were the only players to record at least one goal and one assist for the season. She had at least one shot in every game except SMU, Colorado College, Tennessee and Alabama. Her goal came in the 2-1 win over Ole Miss as the Razorbacks began SEC play 1-0. Her highs were three shots against Oklahoma State, Air Force, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt.
