”I’m just trying to take it one day at a time,” Jacobs told reporters Friday. “Just trying to stay focused on the main task at hand. “I still have some people to talk to, so I’ll have that decision.
Isaac was a third-team all-conference selection from both the media and coaches polls after a season in which he recorded 23 tackles, nine tackles for loss and four sacks. He’s appeared in 32 games across his three years with 50 career tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks.
Despite being listed as a redshirt junior, Isaac should have two years of eligibility left at Penn State due to the COVID pandemic, and Jacobs has two years as well.
Jacobs had 47 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, three pass deflections and two sacks. He also helped in the turnover department with an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Jacobs was an All-Big Ten honorable mention by the coaches and media this past season and has appeared in 31 games across these past three seasons.
