Jacobs' Planning to Visit UCLA

Arroyo Grande (Calif.) safety Seth Jacobs (6-2, 205), has had a busy week, with unofficial visits to Big 12 and SEC schools and an offer at the end of the week from the Pac-12 champions.

"Oregon offered today," said Jacobs. "That's a big one."

The Ducks offer caps off a week that saw Jacobs visit Oklahoma State and Arkansas unofficially.

"We were in Oklahoma for my cousin's graduation and we visited Oklahoma State and then visited Arkansas," said Jacobs. "I really liked it there."

Arkansas is where Jacobs spent much of his time on Sunday.

"Arkansas is big time ball," said Jacobs. "I liked it, it's a great environment, the people were friendly. People come up to you and shake your hand. They were very nice. And it's the SEC. I did get that feeling that they take their football seriously. The coaching staff has brought success there. And they've gradually gotten better the past couple years."

Jacobs has 15 offers now, and while he'll whittle things down soon, he's not shutting anyone out yet.

"I'm starting to narrow down my list just a bit, but I'm completely open to any new offers," said Jacobs. "I'm starting to wonder who's not going to be on it, and who is, just completely brainstorming. I'm thinking about all the things I have to take into account."

Jacobs plans to visit a couple of in-state schools this summer.

"I'm going to visit UCLA and Cal unofficially soon," said Jacobs. "USC maybe too. They said they were going to meet and let me know where I stand."

Jacobs plays both safety and linebacker and the versatility he has, has opened up plenty of options.

"I'm getting recruited for both safety and outside backer, it just depends on the defense, for the most part. I'll play weakside backer some times and strong safety. It's all up to the coaching staffs and where they see me for their particular scheme," said Jacobs.

Jacobs is planning to camp at the B2G Elite Showcase in late June and go with B2G to Dallas for the New Level 7on7 National Championships.

Academically, he's fully qualified with a 1470 on the SAT.
