From the Washington Post:
Levern Jacobs was surprised when Maryland Coach Randy Edsall offered a scholarship during a Wednesday afternoon meeting.
But the former Suitland standout wide receiver knew his answer.
“I thought they would wait til next week or something, but hey, it all starts with a scholarship,” said Jacobs, a one-time Marshall recruit who played this past season at Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. “They surprised me. I’m happy. I wanted to go there already.”
Maryland had made preliminary inquiries about Jacobs at Suitland, but he said that when former assistant coach James Franklin left to become the head coach at Vanderbilt, the Terps stopped recruiting him.
Jacobs, who is 6 feet and 170 pounds, eventually committed to Marshall, but the Thundering Herd wanted him to defer his enrollment, so he went to Milford.
