He becomes the 26th player in SU’s Class of 2014.“Incredibly blessed to say I am now officially committed to play football at Syracuse University! #GoOrange,” Jakubowski tweeted.Listed at 6 feet and 175 pounds on his Hudl profile, Jakubowski can join the Orange for practice in August after he ends his career at Wheaton-Warrenville South High School in Wheaton, Ill.On April 1, SU head coach Scott Shafer said kicker Alex Hodgkinson had started taking punts to back up fellow senior punter Riley Dixon — who thrived in the role well enough to earn a scholarship by the end of the year — but he expected to add another punter to the roster.Last year’s backup punter, Jonathan Fisher, left the team this offseason.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img
