Jacobs Setting Official Visits

It was expected that Vince Jacobs, who committed to North Carolina over the summer, would take an official visit to Chapel Hill. However, unexpectedly, Jacobs plans to officially visit other schools as well.

"It hasn't been set in stone, but I think we're going to do [my official visit to UNC] on December 2nd," said Jacobs. "I'm also going to schedule one with Virginia. We're kind of thinking [about officially visiting] Clemson, but we haven't made it final yet. I got an offer in the mail from State early last week, but we haven't started to talk about an official yet."

Jacobs, a 6-foot-7 210-pound tight end from Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day, still maintains his commitment is firm with the Tar Heels.

"I just want to enjoy the experience," said Jacobs. "Not really to change my mind or anything, just to enjoy the whole official visit experience and everything that goes along with it."

Although Jacobs spends most of his Saturday afternoons in Chapel Hill, he has already unofficially visited Virginia (vs. Florida State) and N.C. State (vs. Virginia Tech).

Deep into the NCISAA 11-man playoffs, Jacobs is focused on his football team, which recently shocked the state with a 17-7 upset of favorite Charlotte Country Day.

"Nobody gave us a chance," said Jacobs. "They pretty much had their tickets written to go to the State Championship. Everybody on our team knew that we had a shot and that we played really bad the first time. We were ready for some revenge; we took our opportunity and did what we have to do."

In the game, Jacobs caught three passes for 34 yards.

In the NCISAA 11-man Championship game Friday, Providence Day will rematch yet another opponent they lost to in the regular season – Charlotte Latin.

"We are going to do a lot of things the same," said Jacobs. "We are going to try to keep control of the ball and avoid turnovers."

Jacobs, who has been selected to play in the private school Shrine Bowl, has recorded 47 catches for 594 yards, four touchdowns, and two two-point conversions. He also continues to supply the Providence Day offense with solid blocking.
