With Baylor moving to more of a 3-4 scheme, the LB position has become an important one and Levi Jones is someone Baylor is targeting.

With Baylor moving to more of a 3-4 scheme, the LB position has become an important one and Levi Jones is someone Baylor is targeting.

As things move in to the spring evaluation period, BearsIllustrated looks at prospects that could become a part of the 2017 Baylor recruiting class. 

With 6 commitments on board, Baylor is looking to fill at least 12 - 14 more spots. This will be small class, so as things clear up, it becomes clearer the prospects and positions that Baylor is keying on. 

Over the next several days, BearsIllustrated will look at individual players and what they could bring to the table. These are in no particular order.

The Skinny: Jones has recently seen his recruitment sky rocket, receiving offers from several elite programs. Jones possesses the power and speed that coaches will covet on the defensive side of the ball. He can make plays in space, but also blitz and get after the QB. 

Scout.com's Breakdown: Jones is a player who rose through the recruit ranks powered behind a strong junior year. He made a ton of plays as Austin Westlake made a deep march into the playoffs. He is always around the football and is physically a dominant force. He forces the action, making a good amount of plays behind the line of scrimmage and shows bursts of speed in the open field allowing him to chase down plays from sideline-to-sideline. He is long and lean and has the frame to be an even more impressive specimen as he matures. The brother of Cayleb Jones, who was also a Scout 300 prospect. - Greg Powers

Baylor's Chances: Warm.  Levi Jones is a player that Baylor targeted early and Jones has reciprocated that interest by paying a visit to the Waco campus. Baylor has offered a few LB prospects, as they are moving to more of a 3-4 scheme, and Jones is near the top of their board of guys they'd like to land.
