How did Jacobs fare?

At 6-foot-4, 280-pounds, Damien Jacobs is a prospect that the LSU staff could not allow to blossom under their nose without a look and see. After camping with the Tigers, the junior defensive tackle spoke out about his recruitment.

Back in Gray after a stay on the LSU campus, Damien Jacobs has plenty on his mind.

“I loved the camp, from start to finish,” he said. “It was a real eye opener for me, and I definitely want to see what I can do to work towards an offer.”

With scholarship papers already in from seven schools – Arkansas, Florida State and Ole Miss included – what will it take for the Louisiana-native to get the call from LSU head coach Les Miles?

“At this point it is about me working on getting in better shape, and from there I am going to get down on some more technique stuff,” he said.

“The coaches never got specific with what I would need to do before they would talk an offer, so I am just going to do a little of everything.”

A little of everything, of course, is not always the best medicine.

“I love playing defensive tackle, but the staff sent me over to the offensive line for one day to see how I would perform,” Jacobs said. “I worked out with coach Stud and felt I did alright, but I did not really like it.

“I think that for college, I am going to want to stick to the d-line. My recruitment will focus on that as I move forward.”

Having been from “Big Cat” weekend on the Plains to the Les Miles camp in Baton Rouge, the junior is ready to kick off his cleats and relax.

“I am going to lay off the visits for a bit, because I need to get back with my team for workouts,” Jacobs said. “It has been a pretty good summer for me so far, so I just want to keep that rolling.

“No need for me to stuff all my free time with all the college stuff just yet.”
