Jacobs checks out Notre Dame
Last weekend, a trio of American Heritage (Plantation, Florida) standouts visited Notre Dame for the Blue & Gold game. Notre Dame signee Michael Deeb along with Heritage juniors running back Sony Michel and safety Carter Jacobs made the trip up from Florida. "On Friday, we arrived at Notre Dame," Jacobs said. "We went to campus the next morning and got to talk with the coaches and watch film. I talked with [safeties coach] (Bob) Elliot and [defensive line] Coach (Mike) Elston." "I also got a chance to watch my film with [recruiting coordinator] Coach (Tony) Alford," Jacobs said. "He likes my toughness and my nose for the ball. Most schools are recruiting me as safety or SAM linebacker. Notre Dame is recruiting me for safety." The 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety said the staff talked with him about the numbers game in 2014. "Notre Dame told me they are only taking one safety in this class, so they said to keep working and we'll see what happens around May or June," Jacobs said. "Overall, the atmosphere was great," he said. "I didn't expect that many people to be there. It was good to see them get after it, and I think they're ready to get back at it to try again for a championship." Jacobs said Miami is coming to watch him workout in the near future, and Marshall may be the school closest to extending an offer. His teammate, Sony Michel, is expected to choose from a top five of Georgia, Florida, Florida State, and Notre Dame this Friday. "Sony is still planning on announcing Friday around 4 or 4:30 p.m.," Jacobs said. "That hasn't changed. I honestly couldn't tell you where he is going. He is the only one who knows where he wants to go. He's keeping that to himself until Friday."
