In recent weeks Jacob and his parents have completed the five allowable official visits to NCAA Division I universities that were keen to recruit him.
Following these visits Jacob has committed to attend Creighton University,
Jacob's mother Kathy Epperson has told Maribyrnong Sports Academy that Jacob and his family are very thankful to everyone at Maribyrnong College and Sports Academy who has contributed to his exciting future pathway as a student-athlete.
