Jacob continues to shine on the diamond. This fundamentally sound corner infielder has a solid skill-set. Defensively, he takes a quick first step and gets into a square fielding position. He maintains good body control, gathers well, and plays through the ball smoothly. Offensively, he is patient and waits for his pitch. He finishes through well with extension, driving the ball. Jacob will only continue to improve as he is only a sophomore.

Jacob is a young, thin, 3B who will graduate in 2016. Defensively, Jacob has soft hands, active feet, and he moves well to the ball. He flashes a good backhand, he gathers himself well, and he throws with accuracy to his target. Defense can improve by attacking more aggressively, fielding further out front, and adding arm strength. At the plate, Jacob has good balance, a level swing, and solid barrel accuracy. He will need to be more aggressive, shorten up, and avoid lunging in order to raise hitting numbers.
