Change of plans for Jacobsen

Posted on 24. May, 2011 by Barry Hayes in Canada Spotlight, High School

After making an early commitment to UBC last fall, 6’8” 220-pound forward Mitchell Jacobsen (Penticton, BC/Penticton) has made a significant change of plans.


I have decided to take a year to focus on my academics and possibly re-open my recruitment for 2012,” said Jacobsen. “I have received news that my growth plates are still open, so I will hopefully sprout a few inches over the summer.”


With a strong body to play inside and the ability to step outside and shoot jumpshots with regularity, Jacobsen’s versatility would have fit very well in the CIS. He is also extremely gifted and passionate about achieving success in the classroom.


I plan to get my first year of engineering out of the way at the University of Calgary, not playing basketball, but rather improving my athleticism with my personal trainer 3-5 times a week,” he said. Jacobsen transferred from Sir Winston Churchill High School in Calgary, a very short distance to the U of C, to Penticton Secondary in British Columbia this year.


Seeing as education is my number one priority, I am looking to take my talents south of the border to the Ivy League to finish my engineering degree there. I am currently talking to Harvard and Dartmouth.”
