Just two days after adding his 1st commitment as the head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers, head coach Gary Andersen has reportedly added his 2nd commitment to the class and it's another defensive player, but from the completely opposite side of the nation (Mass. to Cal.) - showing once again Andersen's commitment to going where the right players are and not limiting himself to just one set of areas to recruit.
According to reports Jacobs held offers from Air Force, San Diego State, and Fresno State before being offered by the Badgers at his official visit to Wisconsin today.

Wisconsin played it's 2nd straight U-G-L-Y basketball game, but unlike the previous version they didn't dig themselves a massive hole as they hung on to defeat the Minnesota Gophers 45-44 and stay in the race for the top of the Big Ten.

Shooting slump? What shooting slump? Although shooting 3-for-19 in back-to-back losses, sophomore guard Traevon Jackson scores six points in the final 7:02, including the game winner with 2.1 seconds left, to give Wisconsin a much-needed 45-44 win over No.12 Minnesota Saturday.
With another opportunity in crunch time, Wisconsin wasn't going to lose another chance to seal the deal. Sophomore guard Traevon Jackson hit the game winner and freshman Sam Dekker sealed the 45-44 victory over No.12 Minnesota with a rebound off a missed free throw, as the Badgers finally got some breaks to go its way.
