"The visit to Alabama went really good," said Phelon Jones from Mobile, (Ala.). "I talked to the defensive backs coach [Chris Ball] and the wide receivers coach [Charlie Harbison]. Both of them kept saying how they wanted me to play for them. It really doesn't matter to me which position I play."
"I liked the db coach a lot. He was real cool. He told me I already had the size and the speed to play in his secondary. I didn't really talk to the receivers coach much. He was a cool guy though. My dad spoke to him a lot."
Jones shared his thoughts of the Tide's Saturday afternoon practice.
"I thought they had a good practice," he said. "I didn't stay for the whole time, but I saw a lot of the different drills they were doing. They did a lot of the same stuff that we do. I like how they run their practice."
"I looked at a few of their facilities. I really liked their weight room. It was real nice."
When asked to name favorite schools Jones replied, "Alabama is moving up on my list. I didn't think too highly of them before I went up there. Alabama has a nice program, and a good coaching staff. I don't have an overall favorite, but Alabama and Auburn are at the top of the list. I like LSU, Ohio State, Virginia Tech and Michigan as well."
Jones will travel to Auburn this weekend.
He will participate in the Scout.com All-American Combine in Tuscaloosa April 29.
