Florida OL names Duke in early top three

Offensive lineman Ben Jones is a very good player from Belleview High. He's starting to get some major looks on the recruiting front and Scout has the latest.

Ben Jones is coming off a very strong junior season on the field at Belleview High. And at 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, Jones has ideal size for a major college offensive tackle prospect.

Jones talked about what separates him from other players at his position.

"My work ethic for one," Jones said. "Pretty much, you have to stay in the weightroom and keep your strength up. I give a lot of effort on the field."

Jones, who is still waiting for his first scholarship offer, talked about the latest on the recruiting front.

"I'm very interested in Wisconsin, UCF, Indiana, and Duke," he said. "I've been invited to Junior Days at Wisconsin, Indiana, and UCF."

Jones, who projects as a full academic qualifier, talked about some of the things he'll be looking for when choosing a school.

"Academics is very important to me because not everyone makes it to the NFL. That piece of paper saying you graduated is what carries you. The coaches, too. I'll see if they can help me carry on a good relationship through college."
