2017 Golfer Jacob Penny signs with Florida Southern College

RecruitLook’s Jacob Penny, a 2017 golfer from Durant HS in Plant City, FL, signed his letter of intent this week with Florida Southern College. Penny received interest from plenty of schools, ranging from Division I to Division II, but ultimately decided to sign with the Division II powerhouse Mocs program.

Penny didn’t get blinded by division level as some kids and families do nowadays. “I wanted to stay in Florida if I could and Florida Southern has a great history with their golf program, plus it’s only 30 minutes from home,” said Penny — the 2015 Premier Jr Golf Tour Player of The Year.

FSC was the college golf home of PGA Tour players: 2-time US Open Champion, Lee Janzen, and Rocco Mediate.

Penny plans to pursue a degree in business in the sports field.
