Jacobs is from Laguna Beach, California. He was 14 years, four months and 29 days old when he signed his deal last month. That's less than a month younger than Freddy Adu was when he signed with Major League Soccer's DC United in November 2003.
Jacobs has been training with Orange County SC's first team since May. He has trained at Bayer Leverkusen and Köln in Germany, but the midfielder is starting his pro career near his hometown. Jacobs could play for Orange County later this season.
