2013 Projections: Jacob is currently listed behind Beckett Wales and Josh Parris at the tight end slot. It's probably special teams or bust for the walk-on.
How'd He Get Here?: He hopped on I-90 East and drove for a while.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing on Jake from them.

What Does Shafer Think:During the spring, Shafer and George McDonald discussed how thin the tight end position was, but appreciated the work that Green, Wales, and Parris put in:
"We only have three so they're like the unsung heroes," offensive coordinator George McDonald said. "They take a lot of reps during practice." "We're a little thin right now and a little young right now, but we've got some kids that can play," coach Scott Shafer said. "They're young so they're continuing to develop and learn the game," McDonald said. "Josh has a really good opportunity. He is big, strong guy, can be very strong at point of attack. Jacob is at a disadvantage in height-weight-speed ratio but he is probably our best technician."
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Jacob is probably the first Syracuse athlete that I can remember whose major is Pre-med.
