Jones has six scholarship offers – Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Gardner-Webb, Louisiana-Lafayette, Newberry College, and UNC-Charlotte. He is also attracting interest from North Carolina State.
Although the Piedmont (S.C.) Wren defensive tackle is somewhat undersized at 6-foot-1, 288 pounds, there is a lot to like about his game. He is extremely strong and plays with good leverage. Jones also shows good quickness and agility. He does a nice job using his hands to fight of blocks and has a non-stop motor. While Jones is a prospect that has flown somewhat under-the-radar, I expect him to be a very good player at the collegiate level.
