WR Markish Jones Profile
Markish Jones, a 6-1, 190 pound wide receiver out of Broome High School in Spartanburg will begin his senior season later this week.
"We have our first game this Friday," he said. "We play at York. I am going to play receiver and defensive back. I will play some corner and some safety."
Interestingly enough, Friday's game between Broome and York won't be the only match up on the gridiron Jones sees this weekend.
"I actually talked to Willy Korn yesterday. I am going to see Byrnes play this Saturday. I told him that Clemson was No. 1 on my list right now. I told him I thought about committing to a college soon. He told me I need to come on down there soon."
Willy isn't the only Byrnes standout that has been talking with Markish.
"I also talked to Stanley Hunter last week,' Jones said. "Stanley and me kind of grew up together. We went to the same elementary school. We have known each other for a long time. I would love to play with them."
Clemson assistant coach David Blackwell is working to get Markish on campus for a visit.
"I talk to them a lot," he said. "I talk with coach Blackwell all the time. I was supposed to go down there last Saturday for the scrimmage but something came up and I couldn't go. I am going to go wait now and go see them when the season starts."
Although the Tigers lead for Jones, a verbal commitment may still be a few months away.
"I am probably going to wait until around the middle of the season to commit," he said. "I had thought about committing early, but I want to take my visits first."
Where will the Palmetto standout visit this fall before making a commitment?
"I will probably visit Clemson, North Carolina, Florida State, East Carolina and LSU," Jones responded.
