“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Georgia Tech! I’d like to thank my friends, family, coaches, teammates, but especially the best mom out there, Marion. I wouldn’t have been able to get to this point without your tremendous support! I love you. Go Jackets!! ??”

Jacobs attends the University School in Davie. He placed third in the 200 free (1:39.37) and was runner-up in the 500 (4:28.38) at last weekend’s FHSAA Class 1A Championships. He swims year-round with the club team Crest Swimming under coaches Jay Fitzgerald and Mariusz Podkoscielny, and also represents Aruba on the international level.

He also swam at Nashville Futures, competing in the 100/200/400 free and 100 fly and lowering his best time in the fly.
