Boone: As Kyle stated, Seth Jacobs might be the most underrated player on the entire team. That’s not a slight to Jacobs; the quality and depth at the linebacker position is simply phenomenal.
Spencer has been on him hard since his arrival in Stillwater, but he has quietly developed into one of the top linebackers on the team. “I was brutal on him… But I knew he had that potential, and he just took the coaching,” Spencer told the Tulsa World.
That coaching and tough love from Spencer is paying dividends now.
In 2014, Jacobs finished third on the team with 92 tackles, and was named the defensive MVP of the Cactus Bowl. If he is able to build on his strong finish to last season, Jacobs will be one of the stars of a very solid linebacker group.
