Cristobal was fired recently, which made Jones look around at some other options. Today, he connected with another coach and made a new commitment.
"I just got off the phone with Coach (Bobby) Petrino and I'm now a Western Kentucky Hilltopper," Jones said.
At 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, Jones is a massive offensive guard prospect who is very powerful. He plays with good pad level, a good understanding of the game, and is very strong -- especially at the point of attack. He's a good student in the classroom and brings a lot to the table as an interior line prospect. He was one of the school's most heavily recruited players in a decade plus.
