We can add another one to Gary Andersen's commitment list.
Per his coach, 2013 LB Leon Jacobs will leave his offcial visit to #Wisconsin, committed to the #badgers wisconsin.247sports.com/Article/Wiscon… via @247sports— Evan Flood (@Evan_Flood) January 26, 2013
Outside linebacker Leon Jacobs becomes the second official Gary Andersen commitment to this class. And like Jakarrie Washington, Jacobs is a tremendous athlete, only really concentrating on football for his senior season of high school. He wasn't in a real situation to put up the most amazing of stats, as he mainly played running back for his senior season for a team that finished 0-10. Jacobs also had his season cut short by a hip injury, though he did have the skills to put up 6 yards per carry for that very same team.
Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda recruited Jacobs personally, so it's entirely possible we'll see him sooner rather than later, especially with the change in scheme. But there's a definite theme developing.
The Badgers want them some athletes, and they're getting them.
