LB Leland Jones
6-1, 204, 4.65
Douglass High School
The 6-1, 240 pound prospect is down to the Palmetto state rivals and Minnesota. "My top schools right now would be Minnesota, Clemson and South Carolina. I would say Minnesota is probably number one with Clemson and South Carolina tied for second."
Jones has already taken an official visit to Minnesota. "It went pretty well. I like the big city. It made me feel like I was in Atlanta. The players made me feel at home."
Being from Atlanta, you'd think that the cold weather will not be a factor in Jones decision. Not so. "My grandmother lives in Akron so I'm use to the cold weather."
Last Thursday Coach Burns from Clemson paid Jones a visit. "It went real well. He came by the school and the house. My mom liked him."
Will distance be a factor for the Georgia standout? "No, not really," stated Jones.
Early playing time is one of the factors that Jones is considering. "Clemson and Minnesota would probably give me the best chance at early playing time," stated the prize recruit.
Jones in unsure about when he will make his final decision. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from Georgia, right up through signing day 2004.
