Basketball Recruiting: Georgia, Clemson, Alabama, Florida In The Running For South Atlanta's Nick Jacobs

South Atlanta high school product Nick Jacobs will announce his college decision sometime this afternoon. Georgia, Clemson, Florida, and Alabama are all thought to still be in the running. At this point though it is only Jacobs that truly knows who is leading the race. Jacobs has ties to Georgia given that his cousin is David Jacobs who played football for the Dawgs in Athens. ESPN.com has Jacobs ranked as the tenth best power forward in the country. 

"There’s a lot on my mind," Jacobs  said, without offering any hints. "It’s a tough decision. That’s all I’ve got to say … it’s a tough decision because they are all great schools."

Jacobs is a six foot eight inch power forward who weighs around 255 pounds. He averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds a game last season for South Atlanta. 

It would be a coup for Georgia to land Jacobs since they just lost out on Milton High Product Julian Royal to rival Georgia Tech.
