The 6-1, 180 pound prospect is not ready to go on record with a leader. "I have visits set with North Carolina, Miami, South Florida, Syracuse and North Carolina State. I haven't set one with Clemson but I will probably take one."

The talented athlete was not sure when he would visit Clemson or which school he would drop from his current visit list.

Jones will be traveling to North Carolina this weekend for an official visit while his teammate Andre Copeland travels to Clemson. Coach Swinney is trying to convince both of the Lake City stars to come to Clemson together next season.

What are the important factors that Jones will consider when deciding where he will attend college? "I will look at playing time. I will also look at the academics. I want to major in Business.

As a senior, Jones registered 60 tackles and 7 interceptions as a defensive back, and 24 catches for almost 400 yards and 6 touchdowns as a wide receiver. The Tigers are recruiting him primarily as a defensive back.

Jones is hitting the basketball court instead of the field now that football season is over. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from Florida, right up through signing day 2004.

Editor's Note
With the lack of contact from Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney, the Tigers appear to be backing off the 6-foot-1 defensive back.
