LB Jarvis Jones Profile
Four-star linebacker Jarvis Jones is working hard this summer to get prepared for his final season at Carver (Ga).
"Actually I am getting ready to workout," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I have been running a lot lately. Right now I am down to about 220 pounds. I was at about 228 before I started all of the running. I want to be around 215 to 220 to play next season."
The Clemson coaching staff is looking to sign at least three linebackers in the 2009 class, and have been writing often to the Georgia standout.
"They have been writing a lot. They pretty much just say the same things. They want to make sure I am keeping Clemson in my mind," said Jones.
When asked about his current leaders, Jones responded, "It is pretty much the same. I don't really have any leaders right now. I am still open. I am just kind of laid back."
Recently the four-star linebacker made a visit out west.
"I went to Texas," he said. "It was a great atmosphere. They had a big campus. The coaches were great. It was a pretty cool place.
"Next I am going to LSU on July 18th."
Jones' senior season is right around the corner.
"We start practice in three weeks. The season is right around the corner," said Jones. "We should be pretty good this year so I'm looking forward to it."
Any timing for a verbal commitment for Jones seems to be way off in the distance. At least for now.
"I am still planning to announce at the All American game or on signing day," said Jones. "It's going to be a while before I'm ready to announce anything."
Jones is currently the No. 5 strong side linebacker prospect in the nation according to Scout.com.
He last visted Clemson unofficially during spring practice.
The Tigers currently have two verbal commitments at linebacker, including Georgia native Eric Fields and South Carolina's Quandon Christian.
