"I had time to really talk to the coaches and get to know them. They haven't been really successful in the past, but they say they are bringing in a new kind of player and I could be one of them. It was the same thing that Coach Kelly was talking about in the in-home visit. They are recruiting me as an athlete. I could play quarterback or receiver for them."

With plans on majoring in accounting or business, Jones said he was impressed with Duke's reputation in that area.
"A Duke degree in those fields will mean a lot if I didn't play football after college, it's hard to top that."
Still, Jones didn't offer a commitment to the Blue Devils, but that shouldn't come as a surprise.
"I want to take as many visits as I need. I'm going to visit Texas A&M this weekend and then I'll visit Kentucky the first weekend in January. After that I don't know, but it'll be close to decision time."
