South Atlanta High’s Nick Jacobs, one of the state’s top college basketball prospects, just laughed when he was told about all the rumors circulating about him on Monday night.
Jacobs will announce his college decision after lunch on Tuesday at South Atlanta. Depending on which message board you read in the last few days, Jacobs was a “lock” for Clemson, or destined to sign with Georgia, Alabama, or Florida.
“There’s a lot on my mind,” Jacobs said, without offering any hints. “It’s a tough decision. That’s all I’ve got to say … it’s a tough decision because they are all great schools.”
Landing Jacobs would be huge for UGA, which lost out to Georgia Tech on Milton High power foward Julian Royal last week. There’s a also a Georgia connection with Jacobs, as his cousin David Jacobs played football for the Bulldogs.
The 6-foot-8, 255-pounder averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds at South Atlanta as a junior.
Now it’s YOUR turn. Make your prediction for Jacobs.
