WR Markish Jones Profile
After an impressive 24-point win over 13th-ranked Georgia Tech Saturday, the good news just keeps on coming for the Clemson football program.
Sunday evening, Broome wide receiver Markish Jones gave his verbal commitment to the Clemson coaching staff, as expected. Jones originally told CUTigers back on Oct. 10 that a commitment to Clemson was likely in the works.
"I called coach Blackwell twice today," Jones told CUTigers.com. "I called him earlier today and then called back about 30 minutes ago.
"He knew I was going to commit yesterday. Both of my parents told him yesterday that they were already committed to Clemson. Coach Blackwell said now all we need is that commitment from you."
Not surprisingly, Jones said it feels good to get the recruiting process behind him.
"I feel relieved," he said. "Now the hard part is telling the other schools that were recruiting me."
When asked how firm his commitment to Clemson is, Jones responded, "It is a verbal. I am committed to Clemson. I am still going to take some other visits. I am going to Florida State on the 25th of November. I was supposed to go to Kentucky next week but I have the SAT."
Jones' commitment gives the Tigers two wide receivers in the 2007 recruiting class. Clemson also has a verbal commitment from Brynes wide out Xavier Dye.
