While there was a slew of 2009 visitors on the LSU campus yesterday for their showdown with Georgia, the Tigers also played host to a few 2010 prospects. One of them was tight end Nic Jacobs from Many, La.

The visit to Tiger Stadium was Jacobs’ second LSU game experience of the season, as he was also in attendance for the Mississippi State game.

 

While the game turned out a little different than he expected, Jacobs still enjoyed his visit.

 

“It was a good game,” he said. “I thought LSU should’ve pulled it out but they didn’t. It was a great atmosphere though. The fans were into the game the whole time.”

 

Jacobs arrived on campus at about 12:30 yesterday, and he had a chance to speak with a few of the LSU coaches while waiting for the game to start.

 

“I got to talk to coach Miles, coach McCarthy, and coach Henson yesterday,” he said. “They were saying it was good to see me and hoped I would enjoy the game. They talked about offering me a scholarship too, but they haven’t done it yet. They are recruiting me as a tight end.”

 

While he does not yet hold an offer from the Tigers, Jacobs makes it very clear that they are the team to beat for his services at this point.

 

“LSU is my main choice,” he said. “I like how they get the tight ends involved in the game. The tight ends are one of the main parts of the offense.”

 

“LSU is my No. 1 school,” Jacobs added. “I’d like to see some other schools, but there is a good chance I could commit when they offer.”

 

Standing 6-5, 245 pounds and with 4.8 speed, Jacobs could also find himself playing on the defensive side of the ball at the next level.

 

In fact, that is the route that he hopes to take.

 

“I love to hit people so hopefully I’ll get offered at defensive end,” he said. “It doesn’t really matter too much because I’ll play anywhere, but I love playing defense.”

 

Note: Nick Jacobs is also a standout basketball player and he is hearing from LSU and several smaller schools for his performance on the hardwood. He averaged 17 points and nine rebounds a game as a sophomore.
