New Bearcat Profile: Carter Jacobs

Carter Jacobs is called a "Coach on the Field" and brings that to UC this fall. Insider caught up with the latest signee on Signing Day.

The Cincinnati were looking to add some depth and grittiness to the defensive side of the ball and hard-hitting safety Carter Jacobs should not be overlooked come next season for Cincinnati. Standing at 6-foot-1 and 193-pounds, Carter Jacobs from American Heritage High School in Coral Springs, Florida recorded 107 tackles and three sacks in his senior season, as a safety. Jacobs' personal accolades on the field include being named to the Florida 5A 1st Team All-State Team, 1st Team All-Broward County Team and Florida 5A 2nd Team All-State Elite.

Insider caught up with Jacobs to ask him a few questions about Signing Day/Recruitment and finally being a Bearcat.

"It feels great," said Jacobs. "Recruitment has been a breeze thanks to all the coaches from Cincinnati & I feel truly blessed to be moving onto a big part of my life."

When asked what made his final decision to come to UC, Jacobs talked the camaraderie of the campus.

"It has everything anyone would want or need in a school: great fans, great tradition, great education, and an incredible staff. When it comes time for me to put that jersey, it'll be a hell of an experience but it's just another day playing the game I love! There is nothing better than that."

American Heritage Coach Jeff Koonz discussed Jacob's drive to be a great player.

"Carter is coached by 2 men that had great NFL careers (Mike Rumph and Patrick Surtain), both describe him as the most talented Safety they have seen coming out of high school," Koonz explained. "He is widely considered a 'Coach on the Field' by all who have come in contact with him. He will be a stalwart for future championships at UC."
