Recently he measured out at 6-4 235. He recently ran a 4.6 forty, and he is receiving attention from college programs from all over the country. His name is Richetti Jones and he plays linebacker for Dallas Lincoln.
Jones explains that his sophomore season, one in which he played 15 games, he recorded 75 tackles, 25 sacks, and 15 tackles for loss. He provides that his junior year, one in which his team played only 10 games, he recorded 73 tackles, 15 sacks, and 25 tackles for loss.
Jones feels his junior season went well, but he has bigger plans for his senior season.
"My goal is to dominate. To shut down. Not just a side, but the whole half of the field. I want to have a good season. I want to go out with a bang."
He is a terror for offenses when he lines up at linebacker, but Jones explains that he prefers a different position.
"Most coaches want me at linebacker. I'd rather play defensive end. But if I play linebacker, I'm okay with that too."
Jones currently holds offers from Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Baylor. When asked if he had a list of favorites, Jones replied, "No, it's wide open for everyone."
"I'm looking for 'Playing Time University' and I am looking at graduation rates."
Jones hopes to graduate early in December and has no intention on making an early decision.
"I'm going to take all my visits and then decide."
Jones has already visited Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, and is planning on attending Junior Day at Texas. He is unsure on whether he will be able to make it to the Scout Combine on March 11.
Jones is still hearing from schools such as Texas, Florida, UCS, Notre Dame, and Texas Tech. With all the schools in the running, Jones is sure to make a bang wherever it is he decides to go.
