"I haven't received any offers yet but I'm hearing from about a dozen schools on a regular basis. Some of the schools that have been contacting Baxter include Georgia Tech, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. He's also recently been hearing from Penn State.
Baxter made a visit to Georgia Tech at the end of last season. "I went there for the Georgia Tech-Georgia game and it was great," said Baxter. There was a lot going on with communication between their fans and players before, during, and even after the game." Baxter liked that the fans were really into it.
Jacob was originally being recruited at Tech by Brian Jean Mary who is now coaching at Louisville. He is now hearing from Coach Mike Sewak. He tells me he likes what he saw on film with me being a physical back and encouraged me to get my SAT scores to him," said Baxter. "I got a 1230 on them."
The 6'1"-230 fullback feels that the offense run by Georgia Tech is suited for him. "The fact that they run an offense that uses a big, strong B Back has my attention, because that's what I am. Baxter currently has Tech at the top of his list.
Baxter played his junior season at 240 pounds but has now trimmed down to 230. "I was used a lot a fullback and had a pretty good year catching the ball out of the backfield. He also ran some out of their Wildcat package and played a little at defensive end and linebacker.
Jacob has a busy summer planned. "I may go to as many as eight or nine one day camps." He has definite plans to attend Georgia Tech's camp and is also thinking about going to Kentucky, Penn State, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
When the offers start to come in, Baxter will probably make his decision by the end of his senior season. "I want to go where I can showcase my running skills," said Baxter. "I like the SEC and grew up a South Carolina fan but they don't run that much so Georgia Tech remains my focus."
