“I am delighted with the signing of Jacob as he fits my programme & style of play very well. Once I was appointed I felt the team needed to be freshened up and I’m delighted to sign such an athletic player of Jacobs calibre who will give us more scoring power, rim protection plus energy & physicality on both sides of the court. Over the years Demons have signed excellent Americans and I know Jacob will come in and make his own mark from the start. Jacobs looks to have all the attributes to fit in with the team and my plans for the coming season and I look forward to the season ahead”
