WR Markish Jones Profile

6-1, 190 pound wide receiver/cornerback prospect Markish Jones had another strong game for Broome last Friday night.

"I played pretty good but we lost again," he said. "We lost to Clover. They run the wing T. I had six catches for 92 yards. They had me on lock down."

Jones, the No. 14 prospect in South Carolina for the class of 2007, also traveled to Columbia Saturday night to watch the SEC battle between South Carolina and Georgia.

"Yeah I went to South Carolina Saturday night," he said. "They had some chances. But they blew most of the chances. They fumbled two times on like the one yard line.

"Next I plan to go to the Tennessee game against LSU on November 4. I am also planning to go to the Florida game against Florida State on November 25."

Jones, who was on hand for the Tigers' season opening win over Florida Atlantic, says that Clemson will get an official visit in January.

"I have been talking with coach Blackwell about that," he said. "He is trying to get me to take it in January."

Several other schools are also trying to get Jones to visit this fall.

"I really don't know where else I will go," he said. "I have been talking to a lot of schools. I am hearing from East Carolina, Marshall, and Georgia Tech. They all want me to visit before November.

"I just want to see the campuses. I want to check on the graduation rates. I want to understand what the different schools have to offer."

While the Palmetto state standout is planning to look at several schools, the Tigers are definitely the team to beat.

"Yeah I would say that now," Jones added. "Clemson is my leader."
