Prescott (Wisc.) lineman Nick Jacobsen is already on the board with his first scholarship offer of the recruiting process. He is working to earn more, while also spending time getting to know the colleges showing interest in him.
"I am going down to Iowa State, Ball State and Indiana this weekend," Jacobsen reported. "I'm going to Indiana on Thursday, Ball State on Friday and then Iowa State on Saturday."
Indiana has been a team recruiting Jacobsen for several months, and his visit to Bloomington on Thursday will be his third trip to the campus.

"I went down when they played Northwestern and then I went to their junior day," Jacobsen reported. "They sent me a few invites to their spring practices. I am going down there to see how the coaches are and see the facilities again."
Jacobsen's contact with Iowa State has not been going on as long, but the Cyclones' interest has picked up significantly in recent weeks.
"I've been talking to Coach [Curtis] Bray," Jacobsen said. "He asked me to come down, so I called and told him last night that I am coming down Saturday for practice. I haven't been down there yet; this will be my first trip."
Although he will not be visiting them this weekend, Wisconsin is another school that is prominent in Jacobsen's recruitment.
"I have been following them forever. They have been my team," Jacobsen said of the Badgers. "I went to their junior day and when they played Penn State I was down there."
The 6-5, 305-pound Jacobsen played both offensive and defensive line as a junior for Prescott High, and he is being recruited for both positions in college.
"I think it is pretty split right now. I asked North Dakota what they thought, and they said they hadn't even made their decision yet. I feel like I can play both of them at a high level.
Specifically, Jacobsen projects to the offensive guard and defensive tackle positions in college. On defense as a junior he registered 55 tackles and 10 sacks.
