The UCLA Bruins and Chip Kelly added their first 2020 commit today, as three-star defensive lineman Jay Max Jacobsen announced via Twitter today that he will be heading to Westwood.
After a long talk with my family and coaches I would like to announce that I am committed to the University of California, Los Angeles!! pic.twitter.com/IEFNjAuZAE— jaymax jacobsen (@jaymaxjacobsen) March 16, 2019
Jacobsen is a 6-4, 230 pound defensive end from Temecula Valley High School. Jacobsen is currently the 134th ranked high school player in California, and the 66th ranked strong-side defensive end according to 247sports.com.
Even though Jacobsen plays defensive end in high school, it looks like UCLA offered him as an outside linebacker.
As part of UCLA’s March #8CLAP8TH event where UCLA officially offers recruits on the 8th of every month, Jacobsen received his dream offer from the Bruins and shared the news on Twitter.
Beyond excited to receive an offer from The University of California, Los Angeles!! Thank you @CoachKaufusi for the opportunity. #GoBruins pic.twitter.com/oxEYC2OUPo— jaymax jacobsen (@jaymaxjacobsen) March 8, 2019
Jacobsen had also received offers from San Diego State, San Jose State and Utah State, but he had made it clear that UCLA was his dream school and when the offer came he wasted very little time committing to the Bruins.
Below are some highlights from Jacobsen’s junior season at Temecula High School. His junior season highlights definitely show an aggressive defensive end with some sound fundamentals at that end position. I would venture to say that he will turn some heads during his senior season and will have many schools trying to steal him away from the Bruins.
Good luck on your senior season at Temecula High School!
Welcome to Westwood, Jay Max!
