Once the new year rolled in, new schools started inquiring about the 6-foot-2, 175 pound athlete out of Merritt Island, Fla.
"Shaq is a tall athlete who really plays corner well. He had a number of interceptions for us, he changed games for us this season, and he has so much potential. He is fast with good size and he is a very good athlete."
Louisville got the three-star corner on an official visit and on January 22, Jones committed to the Cardinals.
Here we are a week later and Georgia will get him up to Athens for an official visit.
"Georgia offered me last week and I will be visiting there Friday," said Jones.
The visit to UGA has not changed his commitment status to Louisville, but he will give the Dawgs a look.
"Shaq does not talk too much about it all, but he has really been wearing his Louisville jacket around here a lot," said Coach McLean. "He is committed to Louisville right now, I know that. He seems to be solid, but you never can tell."
Jones had a great visit to Louisville and he will now trip to Georgia. The Cardinals made him feel right at home, so UGA has a lot of work to do if it expects to flip this Sunshine State corner.
"I liked just everything about it (Louisville visit)," said Jones. "It's the right place for me."
