Jacobs waiting to name favorites

Seth Jacobs was tight-lipped about naming any favorites last week at the B2G Elite Camp but the Arroyo Grande, Calif., linebacker is cutting down his list soon so some top programs could emerge over the summer or early in his senior year.
"I'm in the process of narrowing things down but I don't want to put anything out there because I'm not 100 percent about my schools," Jacobs said.
"I'll take probably one or two visits during the fall maybe and then after football season I'll take the rest of my visits. I'll just have to talk it over with my parents to figure out what's best."
Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Northwestern, Oregon, Oregon State, SMU, UCLA, Washington and Washington State have offered Jacobs, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound outside linebacker who's rated No. 24 at his position by Rivals.com.
Waiting doesn't seem to be a big issue and Jacobs doesn't seem bothered by waiting things out much longer in his recruitment.
"It's not a real big deal to me," Jacobs said. "I'm just trying to figure out what's best for me. I'm not in a rush to make a decision so I'm just not too worried about it right now.
"I'm not going to put anything out there because I'm not 100 percent sure."
Arroyo Grande teammate Brent Vanderveen, a three-star quarterback, recently committed to Oregon State over Arkansas, Oklahoma State and others but Jacobs said he won't base his decision on what others have done.
Oregon State might be a good fit for Vanderveen but Jacobs wants to go through the recruiting process as well so the Beavers might work best but just because a teammate committed there doesn't mean it's a lock for him.
"The decision I'll be making is all based upon my own decision," Jacobs said.
"I'm not going to make a decision because one of my teammates is going to a certain school. It's a great thing for him, it's a great program and a great fit for him so I'm happy for him."
