Chris Jones Drawing Attention

One of the top athletes in the state of Alabama for the class of 2011 is cornerback Chris Jones. Jones from Adamsville (AL) Minor is 5-11 and 170-pounds with 4.5 speed. He could end up on either side of the ball. He has interest from Alabama and attended junior day in Tuscaloosa a few weeks ago.

Head coach Nick Saban went to watch Chris Jones at one of his basketball games and an offer from the Tide could be next.

Jones loves the Southeastern Conference and is looking at Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee.

The best part of his game is his speed and quickness and he wants to play the slot at the next level. He is coming off an impressive junior season in which he recorded 65 tackles, seven interceptions. On the offensive side of the ball he ended with seven touchdowns.

Could the Gators make a move with the talented two way standout?

"I love the Gators," Jones Said. "I am really excited about going down for a visit to meet the players and coaches for the first time and maybe becoming a Gator. We have not set up a time or date on the visit but it should be soon after they contact my coach."
