"I committed to Georgia Tech this week. I like how it's in the city because I'm a city guy. It's a big prestige school with the academics and it will give me a chance to play in the ACC. I have always wanted to play against Miami and Florida State," Antonio Jones said.
What did Jones like about the coaches on the Flats?
"I like Coach Gailey a lot. I remember him from when he was with the Cowboys and I'm a big Dallas Cowboys fan. I have a really good relationship with Coach Modkins as well. He and my coach have known eachother for a long time."
While Antonio has already pledged to the Jackets, the fans in Atlanta may have to sweat his recruitment out for a bit longer.
"I'm not real sure I'm done yet or 100% to Georgia Tech. I've really wanted to play for LSU or Oklahoma for a long time but they aren't really recruiting me yet. I also like Oklahoma State and Iowa. For now, I'd say I'm about 90% to Georgia Tech though."
The Dallas native has picked up 4 offers overall from the likes of Baylor, Tulsa, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. How would he describe his strengths and weaknesses?
"My speed and strength are my best qualities. I bench 315lbs and squat 415lbs. I need to work the most on my footwork."
Antonio went on to add that he'd like to take some visits before deciding 100% on where he'd like to play next Fall. TheInsiders will keep you up to date on him right on through signing day.
