Recruit Update: E.J. Jones

A St. Louis newspaper recently printed an article on E.J. Jones, a big time football player from Edwardsville High School in St. Louis, Missouri. In the article, BYU was mentioned as a possible destination for this all-state prospect.

"No, BYU is not one of the schools I am looking at," E.J. Jones said. "It's too far away and I don't think my lifestyle would fit out there."

Jones said he has offers from Minnesota and Air Force, with Nebraska and Northwestern showing interest.

"I'm tripping to Air Force next weekend," Jones said, "but if Northwestern offers, then I will cancel my trip to Air Force."

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Jones played running back and free safety in high school. He was all-league and all-state.
