Recruiting takes wild twists and turns throughout the process, be it the first day a prospect gets a call or the day before National Signing Day. For Suitland (Md.) wide receiver Taivon Jacobs, his recruiting drama got a whole lot more interesting with just mere hours until the day he is supposed to put his signature on a National Letter of Intent.
Reports of Jacobs wavering on his commitment came to light on Tuesday in a published report in The Washington Post and now it appears that the Maryland Terrapins could be on the verge of keeping the in-state prospect at home and away from Ohio State.
"I've got a lot to think about," Jacobs said in the report to the Post. "I don't now what I am going to decide yet, but it's a complicated decision. I will try and get a final decision made tonight, we have a 10 A.M. ceremony at our school tomorrow."
Jacobs committed to Ohio State in July of 2012 over the likes of Maryland and West Virginia and shocked many, especially with Taivon's brother Levern Jacobs already enrolled in the Terp program.
More information in Jacobs' life was revealed in the report where it stated that he is the father of a one-year-old child and that the thought of moving hundreds of miles away could be weighing heavily on him.
"I've discussed it over with my family," Jacobs continued with. "I want to make the best choice for me. I have a child. I want to make sure I'm a great father and a great player."
The world won't have long to wait to get a final decision with Signing Day so close at hand. We will have the latest on Jacobs' decision on Wednesday morning as he either declares for the Buckeyes or Terps.
