SCOUTING REPORT (courtesy of the OHL Priority Selection Media Guide)
Jacob is a mobile defender that can skate with anyone. He loves to jump up and join or even sometimes lead the rush and uses his skating ability to get back and cover his position well. He has good puck skills and vision from the back end. Jacob makes good outlet passes and transitons the puck well in the neutral zone. His mobility allows him to move along the offensive blue line well and he finds the open lane to the net well.
