Jacob on the rise

With his game and reputation on the rise, Jeremy Jacob will spend a year in prep school, honing his small forward skills and improving his ACT score.
"I'm going to prep school next year," said Jacob, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound combo forward. "More than likely, I'll go to Millersburg Prep. I need to improve my ACT score, and I want to work on my small forward skills."
Jacob turned some heads at the Kingwood Classic with his play for the Louisiana Future AAU club.
"I have offers from Arizona, Cincinnati and Tulane," he said. "I'm also getting interest from Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Penn State.
"I don't have any leaders right now. I'll wait till I take some visits. Right now I'm just worried about working on my game."
Jacob, who averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds per game for state runner ups Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge, La., last season, received some high praise from his AAU coach Titus Randle of the Louisiana Future.
"Jeremy has one of the best mid-range games around," said Randle. "He can post and is a consistent jump shooter. He plays hard on both ends of the court and can guard both forward positions."
Jacob is the No. 103 ranked prospect in the pre-summer Rivals150.
