DT Gets Visit From Noles And Canes
"I got one sack despite being doubled and tripled team all night," Jones, who will represent the East squad in the Army All-American All-Star game on January 3rd, said. "I also caused two fumbles and I blew up a hole to help for a punt block. We really hit them in the mouth. The other team was focusing on me which helped my teammates get the job done."
Last week, Jones, Jr. has had a busy time off the field also. His top two teams Florida State and Miami came by for in-home visit.
"Miami was at my home first," he said "At that same time Florida State was over at Kenny's (Ingram) house. The coaches then switched it around. Coach Solinger and Mark were the coaches from Miami and Coach Odell and Mickey Andrews were the coaches Florida State."
Jones like a recruiting coach has been quite active on the phone trying to help round up players to join him at the school of his choice.
"I've talked with Demario Pressley, Kenny Ingram, Xavier Lee and Tony Carter," Jones, Jr., said. "I just got Willie Williams' number and I'm going to give call soon. I want to see where everyone is going to go to school."
Next Saturday in the swamp, Jones is going to try and help his team capture the Class 6A state championship. After that, he'll make official visits to Miami (12/19), Florida State (1/9), LSU (1/16), Georgia (1/23) and Tennessee (1/30).
His father, who played professional football for the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers, gave him some advice.
"He told me the state of Florida should keep their own players so I'm most likely going to stay in state," he said.
Jones, Jr. is an excellent student who is on track to qualify academically for college.
