"I've got an apartment in San Jose, and Friday will be my last day in San Mateo," Orth told Inside Sparta on Tuesday. "I'll be at the first workout at 5:00 in the morning on June 1."
While James will come in as a scholarship athlete, Jacob was invited as a preferred walk-on. What that means is that he was invited to join the team now, with the possibility of earning a scholarship at some point.
Jacob was getting attention from a few lower division schools, primarily Winston-Salem State in North Carolina. However, nothing ever materialized from that.
"They were supposed to call me the day after I spoke to you," Orth said. "They never called. Iowa Wesleyan called (on Monday) but it's way too late for that, I'm going to San Jose State."
