6-7, 220 pound tight end prospect Vince Jacobs just wrapped up an outstanding senior season for Providence Day (Charlotte, N.C.) on the gridiron. "We finished 9-4. We lost in the state championship game. I had 45 catches for 525 yards and six touchdowns on the year," Jacobs told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
The star tight end, who currently considers himself a "strong verbal" to North Carolina, also admits he's at least the considering the idea of taking other official visits. "It's in our thoughts, but I'm going to wait until after I take my official to Carolina before I decide. I am going to Carolina on either December 2 or the following weekend," he said.
Which other schools would get a visit if the prize recruit decides to continue the recruiting process past Dec. 2? "Right now, the only two other visits I would take would be Clemson and Virginia," he said.
Coach Hobby is recruiting Jacobs for the Tigers. "He is a fun guy to talk to. He is consistent with his calls. He has done a good job. He is just trying to get me to come down and experience Clemson," Jacobs said.
The North Carolina standout has visited Clemson before, but he did not see a game at Memorial Stadium this year. "I have been there in the summer. I went to camp there last summer. That is when they offered me.
"I have watched them on television though. I like their offense. It seems very impressive. I like how they get it to the tight end so much," he said.
With his high school football career now behind him, Jacobs will now hit the hardwood as a power forward for the Providence Day basketball team. "We have our first game on Tuesday," he added. "I'm looking forward to it."
