Jakob is a sure-handed infielder that possesses the ability to make plays. He shows a relaxed demeanor on the field and makes consistent throws across the diamond. He fields the ball with soft/sure hands and has a clean exchange to throw. Offensively, he has good balance and fluid rhythm in his hands. He swings on a level bat path and His hitting ability will improve with more use of lower half to increase power. Jakob is a hard worker who should find success on the diamond.

Jakob is an average sized SS who will graduate in 2016. Defensively, Jakob is sure handed, he has good body control to the ball, and he takes proper angles. He has proper footwork to the ball, a clean exchange, and a good arm action with carry to his target. If Jakob can play lower, and quicken his actions, defensive numbers can rise. Offensively, Jakob has an open stance, an activated load, and he swings in good rhythm. He stays inside the ball, his bat speed is quick, and he gets solid extension through the ball. Offense can improve if Jakob can loosen his grip, quiet his feet, and work on his barrel accuracy.
