OL Ben Jones Profile

6-3, 300 pound Ben Jones attended the Tommy Bowden football camp for two days earlier this week.

"I really enjoyed it," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I liked it a lot. I really liked the offensive line coach. I also got to talk a good bit with my recruiting coach, Dabo Swinney. I liked the facilities and all of that. I got there Sunday and left Monday after dinner."

The Tigers did not offer Jones during the visit.

"No sir, coach Scott said he wanted to see me play. He asked for my film. He said he would get back with me this summer," said Jones.

Jones was the top offensive lineman at the Scout Elite combine in Atlanta in May by most accounts. Several schools are showing strong interest right now.

"I am hearing from Georgia Tech, Alabama, UAB, Clemson, North Carolina and Georgia," said the powerful lineman.

Some might be surprised to learn that Jones grew up pulling for an out of state school.

"I grew up a Georgia fan," stated Jones. "I am actually going to Georgia on Friday and Saturday. I will be going to Alabama next Tuesday and Wednesday. I am going to UAB and Georgia Tech in July. I am also going to see Southern Mississippi."

What will be important to the Alabama standout when he makes a decision?

"I will look at education. I will see if they have my major. I want to major in Exercise Physiology. I want to check the coaches out. I want to make sure I have good communications with the coaches," replied Jones.

Jones also said he could make a commitment this summer if the right offers come along.

"It just depends on the offers. If I get the ones I want I will make my mind before the season. If not I will wait and see who offers during the season," stated Jones. "Most schools want me as a center," he said. "A couple of them want me as a guard. I could play either."
