Jacobs blossomed into one of the better JUCO defensive tackles in the country during his time at EMCC. Florida State didn't have room for another defensive tackle, and that put Jacobs back on the market. He committed to Tennessee in July, but openly flirted with other programs during the process. In addition to Gator fans, Mississippi State fans also believed they had a shot at Jacobs.
This also means Tennessee's top JUCO targets both switched commitments at the last minute. Dooley is pretty much done after this season. So get ready for the "Stoops to Tennessee" talk in 2012. We may want to pluck Justin Wilcox from this staff ASAP
