Standing 6-1, weighing a solid 201 pounds and sporting a 4.50 best-clocking in the forty-yard dash, Jones is seen as a prototype linebacking prospect.
Jones was voted the Team's Most Valuable Defensive Player each of the last two seasons after he led the team in tackles both years. He is very active from his inside linebacker slot and he is fast enough to disrupt sweeps and passes to the outside.
Jones was selected First Team All State and All West Alabama after a junior season in which he had 110 tackles, 7 sacks, 1 interception, and 2 block punts as a junior. His sophomore year he posted 86 tackles and 4 sacks.
The Northport native sheds blocks well and uses very good quickness to jam the holes in the middle and get into the backfield.
Looking forward to his final prep season, Jones will showcase his versatility as a senior by replacing Alabama signee, Titus Ryan as the starting running back for Tuscaloosa County.
Jones has a 29-inch vertical jump, he benches 305, and he squats 450. Academically, he sports a 2.7 GPA and will take the ACT in April.
Jones' nickname is "Red" and he is favoring Alabama over LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, and Georgia Tech.
