Jacobs is a 6’3″ 210 linebacker out of Clayton, Ohio’s Northmont High School. 247Sports had projected Jacobs as a 100% Michigan State commitment so this is a bit of a steal for the Hawkeyes. He also held offers from Northwestern, Nebraska, Missouri, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Iowa State. In his junior season Jacobs had 74 tackles including 13 tackles for loss.
Jacobs becomes the 9th commitment for the Hawkeyes in the 2019 class joining Desmond Hutson, Sebastian Castro, Logan Lee, Ezra Miller, Tyler Endres, Noah Fenske, and Jack Campbell.
