Could 3-star ATH Taivon Jacobs wind up at Maryland instead of Ohio State?

In a bit a shocker, 3-star athlete Taivon Jacobs is evidently reconsidering his commitment to Ohio State. Whether or not this is merely to build drama before a National Signing Day '13 commitment ceremony or not remains to be scene, but Jacobs hasn't hidden the fact that some extenuating circumstances have him reweighing his decision to spend the next four years in Columbus or not.

At the tail end of the silly season that is recruiting, sometimes these last second changes of heart happen. However, from all accounts, it seemed as though Jacobs was satisfied in his decision to commit to the Buckeyes as recently as several weeks ago. Jacobs, a 3-star in the 247Composite Rankings, is a 5-10 160 pound product of District Heights, Maryland and is thought to run a legit sub-4.4 forty yard dash. Jacobs, who also stars in track at his high school, has been said by coaches in the Washington DC area to be a "hidden gem" they consider vastly underrated by national recruiting analysts.

Jacobs took his official visit to Columbus back on January 11th and at the time was said to be very comfortable in Columbus. While some might be inclined to think the Dontre Wilson commitment may be playing a role, per the Washington Post's report, it sounds like "a variety of factors, including his desire to be close to his one-year old daughter, Bailey", has the possibility of him staying home and going to the University of Maryland (not unlike former Ohio State target Stefon Diggs) not totally out of the question.

While it seems as though Jacobs will still announce in favor of the Buckeyes Wednesday morning at his high school at 10 a.m., the situation definitely merits monitoring.
