Pofile - Jakob Brashear
Dacula HS (GA) linebacker commit Jakob Brashear was in Atlanta last Saturday to witness the Georgia Tech-Georgia game. Jakob came away with high expectations for the 2016 season.
Jakob saw a lot of positives in the game. Jacob liked what he saw from the defense. “They limited Georgia to a touchdown, on a busted play, and two field goals. The defense was awesome.”
Brashear remains a solid commit to Tech. Fellow commit Xavier Gantt and Brashear plan to start working on guys in the Gwinnett area. Gantt returned to the field last Friday after being out with an injury. “Coach (Ted) Roof has a presence in the area and we are going to do all we can to help.” Jakob brought offensive lineman and Louisville commit Robbie Bell with him to the game Saturday. “Hopefully Tech can get in on his recruitment.”
With the Christmas break approaching, Jakob will continue to stay in touch with Coach Roof. “We talk every week and we discuss what he wants me to do.” Jakob will continue to work on his conditioning and he’ll also work on becoming a better player. “I know when it comes time for me to get to Georgia Tech, there will be a few open spots at linebacker. I want to be ready to play.” Jakob hopes to make a redshirt decision a difficult one for the coaches.
Jacob has set up a tentative date for his official visit. “I think it will be January 15th.” Jakob hopes to have some of his fellow Gwinnett recruits visiting with him that weekend. “Maybe we can swing some Gwinnett recruits to come and play for Georgia Tech.”
Signing day is only two months away. It’s a date Jakob has circled on his calendar. “I knew that once I got that offer I wanted to go to Georgia Tech. It’s a prestigious academic school. “Jakob also knows that the opportunity is there if he wants to play professionally. “Not many schools can make that claim and I am glad that I for one am coming to Tech to get that chance."
