Fresno State adds three for '13 class 

December, 19, 2012
The Bulldogs have added an in-state high school linebacker and two recruits from Riverside (Calif.) Community College to their Class of 2013, according to multiple sources. All three were on campus over the weekend for official visits.

Prep linebacker Leon Jacobs (Merced, Calif./Golden Valley), a 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect, selected Fresno State over scholarship offers from Air Force, James Madison, Navy, Nevada and Wake Forest, while he also had interest from San Diego State.

Jacobs previously focused on basketball, only playing football during his freshman and senior seasons. This fall, being used primarily as a running back, he carried 133 times for 847 yards and five touchdowns while also registering 19 tackles and three sacks, earning all-league recognition.
