Four-Star WR Loves Texas

Head coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Longhorn staff are leaving no stone unturned in when it comes to recruiting. While the focus will always be on the state of Texas if they find a player who can help the team win they will be recruited. That is the case with Patterson (LA) standout 2016 Mykel Jones.

Mykel Jones is a 6-foot, 185-pound wide out with 4.45 speed from Patterson (LA) He has offers from Akron, Alabama, Houston, Tennessee and Texas to name a few. Charlie Strong has made a lasting impression on the four-star wide receiver.

"I love those longhorns," Mykel Jones said. "Coach Strong is a great coach and will be turning that program around to one of the top schools in the country real soon."

Jones understands Texas has not lived up to the standards the last couple of years but feels they are a sleeping giant.

"As of now the program has a lot of potential and it's up to them on how great they want to be," Jones said. "My relationship with the staff is great, coach [Chris] Vaughn loves me and wants me to come to Texas really bad."

Jones has great change of direction, strong hands, speed, explosiveness and the ability to out think his opponent.
