Camp Yields Offer for NC TE

A week after earning his first scholarship offer at Vanderbilt's prospect camp, Vince Jacobs headed to Winston-Salem for Wake Forest's one-day camp in hopes of the same outcome.

"We went through the camp," said Vince Jacobs. "We did forties [yard dash] and football things and about midway through the camp the coach [Jim Grobe] pulled me to the side and told me he wanted to talk to me later. Then we went upstairs and then they offered."

Jacobs, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound tight end from Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day, currently claims Virginia Tech as his leader. However, Jacobs admits the Demon Deacons are right up there – especially given the limited offers extended to tight ends by Wake Forest.

"The main I was really excited about with Wake Forest is how they were only signing one tight end and I was the first tight end they offered," said Jacbos. "That was exciting – it moved them high up on the list. I really like Wake Forest's campus."

After attending camps at Tennessee, Clemson, and Virginia Tech in the upcoming weeks, Jacobs will make a decision on his collegiate destination. While making that decision, Jacobs will focus on three factors, but one will be weighed a little more.

"Really I'm just looking at the opportunity to play, the school, and lastly location," said Jacobs. "I'm not worrying too much about location, just mainly the opportunity to play."

While helping Providence Day to a 9-3 record, Jacobs caught 13 passes including three for scores.
