Decision on hold for DT Jones

D.J. Jones is one of the most underrated prospects in South Carolina. The Piedmont (S.C.) Wren defensive tackle is still considering two schools.

D.J. Jones is down to Louisiana–Lafayette and Tennessee.

Last weekend, Jones visited the Ragin' Cajuns.

"I took my visit to Louisiana-Lafayette last weekend," said the 6-foot-1, 288-pound Jones. "It was a really good visit and I got to meet some of the players. It was just an interesting visit – it was my first time there."

Although he enjoyed his trip last weekend the Wren defensive tackle is in a holding pattern right now.

"Tennessee is going to offer, but they're waiting on a test score," Jones said. "I take the ACT in March and I'm preparing for it right now."

The Vols started recruiting Jones in December and he was able to meet with their head coach recently.

"I met with Coach (Butch) Jones yesterday and he said they wanted me," said Jones. "He told me that it was all up to me and that he would hold a scholarship for me."

Jones was impressed with Tennessee's new coach.

"He's a good guy," Jones said. "We sat and we talked for about 20 minutes. He was just straight up with me and I really liked that. They're definitely my leader right now and if I had the offer I would commit."

Jones will not make any decisions until he receives his test score in March.

Below are highlights of Jones at last month's Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.
