40 time: 4.8
From: Aurora, Colorado
High School: Grandview
"It was a good visit," said Jones. "I hung out with the guys and spoke with an academic counselor. I had to figure out what I needed to do before next month. I had lunch with Tyler Polumbus and another guy at 'The Sink' on the Hill. I got to go to practice and watch Coach Wilson in action and see how he teaches his players. I also went out to dinner at the 'Cheesecake Factory' and had breakfast with the coaches."
The coaches let Jones know that he could be in the mix immediately. "Coach Wilson told me with all the people leaving that he is going to need one or two of the defensive lineman in this class to step up. I am not sure what position I will wind up at. Right now I am 6-4, 250 so I will start out at end, but if I gain weight over the spring and summer I could be a tackle in time."
Jones believes he has the frame to be a 300-pounder. He received first team all-conference and second team all-state honors after recording 80 tackles (20 for losses), eight sacks, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries with one returned 10 yards for a TD, five hurries, five passes broken up, one interception, and one safety.
The future Buff had a chance to speak with his former teammate, Ryan Walters, while on campus. "Ryan told me that Coach Barnett asked him if he wanted to burn his redshirt and play in the bowl game, but Ryan said 'no'. I hear he is doing real well at free safety."
He updated us on Grandview junior, Aubrey Quarles. "Aubrey is an unblievable player as a receiver and return specialist. I think he really wants to go to CU."
He'll be on campus January 5th for orientation.
