Florida DT Jacobs Not A Fan Of Arkansas C Swanson

gfx - they said itWhen Arkansas visit Florida this Saturday evening, don’t expect Florida defensive tackle Damien Jacobs and Arkansas center Travis Swanson to exchange pleasantries.  Not after Jacobs watched tape of Swanson and reviewed it thusly:


“I see a lot of stuff after the play.  He’s a good athlete after the play.  He makes you want to do something to him.  We’re gonna have to try to keep our temper and keep cool on that.”


According to The Palm Beach Post, Jacobs also said that Arkansas’ offensive linemen are “dirty” and “chippy.”

If you tune into Saturday’s game on ESPN2, keep an eye on the battle in the trenches between the Razorbacks’ #64 and the Gators’ #4.  It’s so on it’s on like Donkey Kong.

SEC Headlines – 1/20/12 Part Two

1.  Florida defensive tackle and incoming juco transfer Damien Jacobs underwent successful surgery on his hand yesterday.

2.  Incoming kicker Marshall Morgan is already making an impact for Georgia.

3.  Kentucky basketball fans will be watching the live announcement of prospect Derek Willis this afternoon.

4.  The SEC doesn’t sound too interested in a South Carolina trustee’s plan to give different values to divisional and cross-divisional football games.  (Good.)

5.  Fifth-year senior Kenny Miles isn’t sure if he’ll return to Columbia to serve as a Marcus Lattimore backup… or head to another school where he can play.

6.  “The next phase” at Tennessee is for big men Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes to start getting some time together.

7.  After a rough start to the season — thanks in large part to injuries — Vanderbilt has run off eight wins in a row and is a perfect 4-0 in the SEC after whipping Alabama in Tuscaloosa last night.

Lineman Salt No Longer Committed To Florida

Defensive lineman Visesio Salt from Mt. San Antonio Community College has switched his commitment from Florida to Utah.

Salt confirmed that move in a text message to the Orlando Sentinel, according to Florida beat writer Rachel George.

Salt, who’s considered the 10th-best junior college prospect by, likely won’t be a huge loss for the Gators.

Florida signed junior college defensive tackle Damien Jacobs and has commitments from high school defensive linemen Jonathan Bullard, JaFar Mann, Dante Phillips and Quinteze Williams.

Denico Autry Chooses Mississippi State

Mississippi State’s 2012 class received a nice boost on Monday night when it received a commitment from Denico Autry.

The defensive end from East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss., told he had grown tired of the recruiting process. Autry chose Mississippi State over Tennessee and Auburn.

“I called the Mississippi State coaches (Monday) night and I told them what I wanted to do,” Autry told the website. “They said they were all for it and got real excited. It was getting real hectic with all these schools coming in on me late and I got tired of it. I just like my window of opportunity at Mississippi State and I didn’t want to pass that up.”

Autry, who plans to enroll at Mississippi State in January, is considered the nation’s second-best junior college prospect by 247Sports.

Autry’s teammate, defensive tackle Damien Jacobs, is committed to Tennessee but is still considering Mississippi State, Florida, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Jacobs, who will also enroll at his next school in January, plans to announce his final decision on Dec. 21.

Jacobs told MrSEC via text message he’s “not sure” if his decision will be affected by Autry’s commitment to Mississippi State.
