High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Jacobs was a key part of his team's offense as a senior at Suitland High School and was recruited by a few schools his junior and senior years, but elected to do a year of prep school instead of making a decision on college. He excelled at Milford Academy and set a school record for touchdowns with eight in eight games. He was ranked No. 17 nationally among prep players, and committed to Maryland in January of 2012.

Jacobs appeared in every game as a freshman, but only had seven catches for 50 yards. As a sophomore he made an impact in Stephon Diggs' absence, catching 47 passes for 640 yards and three touchdowns. He figured to be the No. 3 wideout on the team in 2014 before missing the entire season due to suspension. He enters this season as the most experienced receiver on the team after Marcus Leak's departure.

Career Highlight:

Dream Season:

Jacobs develops into a clear No.1 option for whoever is quarterbacking the Terps. He vaults his name into NFL Draft consideration and makes more of the big plays we've seen from him in his limited action so far.

2015 Prospectus:

Jacobs enters the season as a starting wideout, and he will be relied upon heavily to carry the load in a talented but inexperienced receiver group.

Up Next:

Our next subject is a freshman who earned all-state honors at his Rhode Island high school.
