2020 running back, Isaiah Jacobs, visited Alabama on Sunday and it has Alabama fans drooling to get another Jacobs in the Tide’s backfield.

Jacobs currently has 10 Division 1 offers and is on track to earn several more. Unlike his older brother, Josh Jacobs, his recruitment looks to be filled with multiple top-tier programs. His visit to Tuscaloosa gave him a chance to talk with coaches and get a feel of the program as they have plans to continue to watch him developed before an offer is put on the table.
“It was a great visit,” Isaiah Jacobs said. “I will seem them during the spring.”
The Oklahoma-native received his first Division 1 offer on April 20, 2018. It was from his hometown school, Tulsa University. He has now received offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss, Iowa State, Maryland and a couple more schools.
Touchdown Alabama talked to Isaiah Jacobs in December before he had any contact with Alabama and his offer list just included Tulsa, Memphis and South Dakota State. Although his offer list was small then, he felt he was going to dominate wherever he got a chance to play.
“My goal as a football player is to dominate at every level and go as far as football can take me,” Isaiah Jacobs said.
It is hard to ignore that Isaiah Jacobs has a similar running style to his brother, Josh Jacobs. He runs very hard and low to the ground, which allows him to run over potential tacklers. He also has no problem with lead blocking for fellow backs.
He said he takes a little bit of something from every back and adds it to his game.
Alabama could extend an offer to Isaiah Jacobs during the Spring when they see him in spring practice and game action and Tide fans can hold on to the dream of having another Jacobs suit up for the Tide.
