This summer to prepare for his Senior year, Jake focused 100% on improving strength, agility and speed. Working to recover from a PCL tear halfway through his Junior season, Jake focused on a daily regimin of lifting, Athletic Republic training, speed work and receiver camp. Jake had personal invitations at attend camps from over 15 different D1 football programs. While understanding that full-recovery was paramout, he did choose to attend camp at NIU and University of Minnesota this summer
Choosing to attend NIU camp was a great choice. Northern Illinois University is near and dear to Jake, as a DeKalb native who grew up attending football games at NIU. Coach Doeren and staff will be closely watching Jake’s performance on the field at DeKalb High School’s football stadium.
Jake also attended camp at University of Minnesota at the request of Jerry Kill. Jake had a great exhibition of his skills on the field at U of M and Coach Kill will also be watching this tall Junior as he performs in his final season at DHS.
Jake Carpenter is currently being recruited by NIU, Ball State, Drake University, University of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth. Many other D1 universities have announced that Jake Carpenter is definitely on their watch list including: University of Minnesota, Indiana University, University of Illinois, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Iowa State University, Missouri, Miami University (Ohio) , Bucknell and more…
Good luck to Jake and the DeKalb Barbs as they begin their season tonight at the DeKalb High School football stadium!

Jake had a great Junior Day visit at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on Friday, April 13th. After tours of the athletic facilities and a meet/greet with Miami’s football staff, he was treated to tour of beautiful Miami’s Campus. The outstanding legacy of Miami coaches and it’s football program is very impressive indeed.
Jake had the opportunity to view football facilities, campus, etc. at Ball State University the very next morning. Jake’s grandfather was a tail back for Ball State in the late 1950′s, so this visit was near and dear to Jake’s heart. Another great MAC school!
Spring Break proved to be the perfect time for Jake to (unofficially) visit the campus and football programs at Rice University in Houston and SMU in Dallas, Texas. The search for the perfect fit begins.
