DT D.J. Jones Profile
In no particular, he listed: Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina, Southern Cal, Tennessee, LSU, Florida and Auburn.
Accompanied by his mother, Jones visited Clemson the next day. They arrived around 9:30 and stuck around the campus for the next six hours.
"Mainly, I got to sit down with the coaches and talk to them all," Jones said.
What did he take away from those conversations?
"Just that they were explaining to me that they were losing six defensive linemen up front and the need for me is very high," Jones said. "Me coming in would be great for their 2015 class."
Entering his second and final season at East Mississippi Community College, Jones graduated from Wren High School in 2012, so he's visited Clemson several times over the years. There wasn't much he saw or did on Saturday that he hadn't already.
"My mom was with me and that was the first time she got to tour the academic building, Vickery Hall, so we went over there and she got to sit down with the head of Vickery Hall, talked to her a pretty good bit," Jones said.
Currently on break from school, Jones had already taken trips to Tennessee and South Carolina before visiting Clemson. On Sunday, he visited Auburn.
Jones hopes to take two more visits in the not too distant future.
"I'll probably take some visits to Alabama, that's the closest one to me, and maybe LSU," he said.
Jones will return to Mississippi on the 27th. Class is back in session the next day.
"I was thinking, mid-season I'll break it to five," he said. "From there, I'll make my decision."
During Jones' first season at EMCC, he had 49 tackles, eight tackles for loss and eight sacks. He also forced and recovered a fumble.
