What Will Cornerback Otis Jacobs Bring To The Tennessee Volunteers?

Tennessee is having success on the JUCO circuit in its attempt to plug some holes on defense.

Cornerback Otis Jacobs switched his commitment from Texas A&M to the Tennessee Volunteers over the weekend. SB Nation's fine Tennessee blog, Rocky Top Talk, has more:

The 6-foot-1, 187-pound JUCO cornerback from Gulf Coast Community College in Mississippi visited the Vols on Wednesday after much persuasion by Vols target and teammate Darrington Sentimore. After going back to his Louisiana home and talking it over with his mother, Jacobs switched his commitment from Texas A&M to Tennessee. Derek Dooley and Justin Wilcox were in Jacobs' Covington, La., home Friday night to accept the commitment. He will sign with UT on Wednesday, barring any last-minute craziness.

Jacobs' commitment is directly related to his looking around after the Aggies got rid of Mike Sherman as the head coach. Though new A&M coach Kevin Sumlin tried to sway him to stay with an in-home visit, Jacobs changed his mind and will play the next two or three years in Knoxville. He has three years to play two.

Rocky Top Talk recruiting analyst Brad Shepard also has an excellent update on JUCO defensive tackle Damien Jacobs, who is currently committed to the Vols:

Right here before junior college players can sign, defensive tackle Damien Jacobs -- a four-star prospect at a major position of need -- could be swayed to flip to Texas A&M, Mississippi State or Florida. Right now, the Bulldogs appear to be the most worrisome of the trio since Jacobs' teammate Denico Autry stunned family and UT coaches by committing to MSU over UT this past week. Though the two aren't necessarily a package deal, they are friends, and just by reading a lot of the recruiting stories, Damien Jacobs has been very reluctant to be considered completely "committed" to the Vols for a while now.
