Jacobs Recaps Official Visit to Rutgers

DePaul Catholic (Wayne, N.J.) defensive back Davon Jacobs was one of more than a dozen visitors to Piscataway this weekend. On his official visit after committing to Rutgers this summer, Jacobs broke down an exciting weekend at his future home.

DePaul Catholic (Wayne, N.J.) three-star defensive back Davon Jacobs is even more excited to join the Rutgers football program after this weekend official visit to Piscataway.

Jacobs, who verbally committed to Rutgers during the summer, did not get many chances during the season to see Rutgers because of a tough schedule, but loved his official visit.

"It went well," Jacobs said. "It was a lot of fun for me. It really is like a family down there and I'm a part of it now."

Red-shirt freshman safety Lorenzo Waters hosted Jacobs on the official visit and left a good impression, he said.

"It was really cool [spending time with him]," Jacobs said. "He's a really straightforward guy and he gets it. He was willing to answer all of my questions and show me around. It will be fun to play with him."

Jacobs became close with defensive backs coach Jeff Hafley during recruiting and said he enjoyed spending a weekend with his future position coach.

"That was really cool," Jacobs said. "Me and Coach Hafley were close during recruiting and I got to spend a lot of time with him. I like how he is. He made it a great experience."

Jacobs was one of more than a dozen recruits on-campus this week and went through the entire week of activities trying to recruit other prospects to join him at Rutgers, he said.

Growing up very close to New York, Jacobs said spending time in the city with his coaches and future teammates was one of his best trips into the city.

"I ate and hung out with the coaches," Jacobs said. "We talked a lot about me and my life and how I fit into their family. I got to watch a practice. We went to New York and hung out in Times Square, which was amazing to do with everyone. I hung out with the players a lot."
