Don't sleep on Kevis Jones

Yes, Kevis Jones is committed to UCF, and the Knights have a good thing going, but Jones is not getting the publicity he deserves. The kid lays it all out there, he has a lot of ability, and you can't overlook this young man out of Northeast High School.

Kevis Jones is a 6-foot-2, 210 pound athlete. Yes, he is an athlete.

He can play so many different positions on the high school level and he could play either side of the ball on the next level too. He spends most of his time at wide receiver and linebacker, but he also puts his hand down at defensive end, he spends time at running back, and he threw a 40 yard pass against Miramar Friday night as well.

What stands out the most about Jones when you meet him and see him play is his passion. He lays it on the line. He goes hard each and every time he is on the field, and he plays the game the way you like to see it played.

He is currently committed to UCF and George O'Leary has the program going in the right direction, but not enough people know about Jones. He is someone still flying under the radar in the recruiting world.

This young man has it. It is hard to see him not being successful. Not only does he have the size and ability, but he has the attitude, the drive, and work ethic.

The Knights are getting a very good one. He will likely end up playing linebacker at UCF, he could play outside or inside, but his hands are good enough for him to play wide receiver or tight end too.

Jones has the frame to add a good 30-40 pounds while maintaining his speed, agility, and he ability to move. He is down in South Florida where so many talented athletes come from, but he is one not getting quite the attention he deserves.

Remember this name, Kevis Jones.
