WR Dwight Jones Profile

Dwight Jones, a 6-3, 210 pound wide receiver prospect out of North Carolina is having an outstanding senior season for Cummings High.

"We are doing fine this year. We are 8-1 right now. I have over 800 yards receiving and six touchdowns," Jones told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Jones, who is currently committed to North Carolina, says his commitment to the Heels remains despite the fact UNC head coach John Bunting will step down after the season.

"For right now I am still committed to North Carolina," he said. "My recruiting coach said he would call me next week. I want to see if they will keep him. That will be a big factor. He has been recruiting me since my freshman year."

Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier is trying to get the prize recruit to visit Death Valley in the next few weeks.

"Coach Napier has been talking with my high school coach about trying to get me to come down for a game at Clemson," Jones said. "My mom was talking about taking an unofficial visit to Clemson.

"I will probably visit Clemson, Tennessee or Florida. I will probably visit just one. I'm not sure at this time. I will know more after I talk more with the coaches at Carolina." What were the reasons behind Jones original commitment to the Tar Heels?

"I have always been a Carolina fan since I was young," he responded. "I wasn't really into football until recently. It is close to home. That is important because my mom and family can come see me play. I know several of the players at North Carolina," responded Jones.

Jones was also recently named to the Shrine Bowl.

"I am very happy I made it," he said. "I can't wait to play."
