The Ninety Six High School rising senior arrived to Clemson around 7 o'clock Friday night and was there until early Saturday afternoon.

"Me and Pat [Destefano] had already planned on already trying to get up there together one weekend, and that's the date that we chose," Jones recently told

Was there anything different about this trip to Clemson, compared to the others that you've taken?

"It was the same as it had been before when I spent the night there," Jones said.

The three-star offensive tackle was unable to visit the previous weekend for the Orange and White spring game. Instead, he made a trip Alabama on that Saturday, his second trip to Tuscaloosa.

"I got the full tour of the facilities, met some more of the coaches and the offensive line coach, all that stuff," he said.

Later this week, Jones will pay a visit to South Carolina. He has no other plans following that trip to Columbia.

The Gamecocks sent defensive line coach Brad Lawing by Ninety Six on Friday, the first day coaches were permitted to hit the road for evaluations.

Jones provided an update on the progress of his ACL rehab.

"I'm not going to be able to do contact or anything [this spring]. Probably, about midway through, I'll be able to do some agility, hopefully," Jones said.

"I can do everything but lateral movement, side to side and cutting, the stuff like that."

Clemson and South Carolina are still the only two offers to Jones' name. He's still in regular contact with Alabama, North Carolina and Georgia. Top Stories
