Jacobs, a senior outfielder/third baseman, is batting .600 for the Crimson this season. He has played varsity baseball since he was in eighth grade.
"Brady is a very big signing for our program," Dolan said. "We think he is a (division one) type of talent who has the potential to become a middle of the order hitter for us in the future. He already has the college-ready size and strength and he just loves the game."
Jacobs also lettered for the Crimson football team as a three-year starter at quarterback. On the gridiron, Jacobs holds records for completions in a career, season and game.

Game one saw a pitcher's duel between the Mavericks' Kendra Huettl and the Huskies' Kelly Franks. Franks was named the NSIC's pitcher of the week earlier Tuesday afternoon for her no-hitter vs Bemidji State.
Franks lasted six innings, giving up one earned run on eight hits with nine strikeouts, but the SCSU offense couldn't solve Huettl and the Huskies fell 2-0.
Kendra Franks locked horns with the Mavs Courtney McKelvogue in game two and both teams were held hitless until Kelly Olson ripped a double in the top of the fourth. Olson was stranded, however, and the Huskies had only three hits in game two. The final was again 2-0.
The two losses finish out the road portion of the Huskies schedule and their record now stands at 20-28 overall and 6-16 in NSIC competition.

MSU got off to a hot start against Husky starter Scott Lieser (6-4) in game one. Centerfielder Lucas Skejefte was hit by the first pitch of the game, followed by a Matt Kuchenbecker double down the left-field line to give the Mavs runners on second and third base with no outs.
Patrick Dockendorf cleared the bases with a three run home run to right-center field, giving Minnesota State a lead they would never relent.
Minnesota State starter Harvey Martin ran his record to 7-0 on the season with six strong innings of work. Nick Sutherland worked the seventh for his sixth save of the season.
The Huskies offense broke out in game two, putting up 11 runs on an excellent Mavericks pitching staff. SCSU scored two runs in the first inning, four in the second and five in the third to take an 11-2 lead after three innings.
All nine Huskies in the starting lineup had at least one hit, and five Huskies had a pair of hits in the game.
Logan Birr kept his perfect record intact with 7 and two-thirds innings of work. Birr allowed 14 baserunners but worked his way out of the jams and protected the Huskies massive lead deep into the game.
With the split, the Huskies remain three games behind MSU for first place in the NSIC.

Freshman pitcher Kelly Franks allowed only two baserunners in the game, one on an error in the third and one via walk in the fifth inning. Franks also had eight strikeouts in her first career no-hitter.
Franks' battery mate Mikayla Hogan took care of the offense for SCSU, going 3-4 with three doubles and two runs batted in.
Huskies head coach Paula U'ren gave the credit to Franks and the players behind her after the game. "Kelly Franks and the defense picked up a no-hitter in the first game (Sunday) which was really fun to be a part of," U'ren said.
The SCSU bats exploded in game two for thirteen runs, a season high. In fact, it is the first time the Huskies scored in the double digits since February 11th.
Hogan matched her game one effort with three hits and a pair of RBI, while Franks picked up the win with an inning of scoreless relief.
SCSU is now 20-26 on the season and 6-12 in NSIC play. Next on the schedule is a trip to Mankato to take on the 11th-ranked Mavericks.

The Huskies dropped game one 4-1 (box) after the Bulldogs scored four runs in the bottom of the first inning and the Huskies bats fell silent. Kendra Merritt took the loss for the Huskies and fell below .500 on the season (10-11).
The Bulldogs again used early runs to defeat the Huskies in game two, scoring a run in the first and two in the second for a quick 3-0 lead. The Bulldogs held on to win 6-2 (box).
Huskies head coach Paula U’ren sympathized with her team's struggles on Saturday. “In the first inning our pitcher was given no zone and the walks were a result of that. I give Merritt and our defense credit for battling all day against things they couldn't control," U'ren said.
On game two, U’ren noted “Mikayla Hogan put a great swing on the ball and that should have been a two run homerun, but was taken away for a ground rule double, although it was a line drive over the fence from our angle.”
The Huskies losses put their record at 18-26 overall and 4-14 in the NSIC. The team was scheduled to play at Bemidji State Sunday but was in a rain delay at the time of publishing this story.
