New York DT has FSU Offer

Jarron Jones is a monster on the defensive line out of Rochester, New York. His 6'6'' and 305 pound frame has gotten the attention of the Florida State coaching staff, along with a score of other BCS schools. Jones says he's impressed with the FSU coaching staff so far in his recruitment and looks forward to a visit this summer.

"They offered a scholarship a little while ago and I'm very interested in them. I've been talking with Coach Coley. I know he's always there and I can talk to whenever I call them, he's a real cool guy," Jones explained. "I haven't been there yet, but I do plan to visit in the summer, and I'll get to meet everyone face to face."

Jones will run the gauntlet of combines and offseason workouts just like every other prospect for the 2012 class, but it's not just on the field that he's hoping to improve.

"I will attend the 5 star showcase in March, and other than that I'm just trying to get better all around. I have a 2.4 GPA and I got a 17 on the ACT, both of those are a focus of mine for my senior year. I really want to grow this summer in all aspects of my life just not in football," Jarron revealed.

His maturity shows when he talked about his upcoming decision. He wants to keep his focus on his team rather than himself this fall.

"If I'm ready I will commit before football season. If I still have some things to think about I'll wait till shortly after my season ends. I don't want the distraction during the season," he discussed.

When the focus is turned onto him, it's well deserved. He's an anchor for his team's defensive line, and excels at frustrating the opposing offenses.

"I did pretty good last year. I had 68 tackles, 10 sacks, five forced fumbles, four deflections, one interception, and a fumble recovery for a touchdown. I'm going to turn things up this next season because I know I can improve on what I've accomplished," he finished.
