Bolingbrook (Ill.) junior safety recruit Jacob Huff (5-foot-10, 205 pounds) along with his twin brother Julian Huff added a handful of recent offers including landing a Big Ten offer from Minnesota. Jacob Huff talks about his Gophers offer and what's next for the Huff's in this recruiting update.
"I'm really excited about recruiting along with the offer from Minnesota," Jacob Huff said. "It just seems like more and more schools are interested and it's just an exciting time for us."
Jacob Huff discussed landing his first Big Ten offer from Minnesota.
"We made a visit to Minnesota a few weeks ago and it was a great experience. Minnesota talked about offering me when I was on the visit but they also wanted to come and have defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys come and watch Julian workout in person. Coach Claeys came into school and watched Julian then offered both of us an offer. I had a good feeling that Minnesota would offer but you never want to assume something like that at all. It's a great feeling to both get an offer from Minnesota. We are north really excited about the offer and so is my family."
So could we see a commitment soon from the Huff's?
"We both really like Minnesota and they are right at the top. I feel like I still need to get to know the tam and some of the players. Minnesota has a lot to offer but also just feeling good with the players and feeling like I would be a good fit on the team is also pretty important to me. We've talked about making an official visit and we might not wait that long to make a decision but I definitely would like to get to know the team better."
Huff is also considering his summer plans.
"We talked about maybe camping at one or two schools at the most if we camp anywhere this summer. I want to focus on the team this summer. I might want to head back to visit Toledo like we promised the coaches. I'd also like to see Central Michigan again and a few other schools."
Jacob Huff has scholarship offers from Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Illinois State, Minnesota and Toledo.
