Jones ready to compete

ATHENS – Reshad Jones waited until the last day possible to commit to play football at Georgia. Now he can't wait to get to Athens to play.

"Deciding on Signing Day was real nerve racking for me," Jones said. "But now it's like I know everybody up there."

Jones has made no secret about his admiration of former Georgia safeties like Greg Blue, Thomas Davis and Sean Jones. He admitted the influence it had over his decision. With Blue gone, Jones stands a chance of fighting his way onto the field this fall, although most of his playing time would be on special teams.

Reshad Jones said he could avoid getting redshirted by "going hard and doing the things I am capable of doing."

He got a glimpse into what playing in college would be like when he took in Georgia's G-Day day a few weeks ago.

"It was nice. Asher Allen had a really good game. I think he's shown that he's going to come in and make plays," Jones said.

Getting ready to make the jump from high school football to the SEC can be overwhelming to some. But Jones is following the recommendations of Georgia's staff as far as workouts are concerned.

"It's a lot more work. I think I am improving from it," said Jones of the new workout schedule the coaching staff has asked him to follow. He claims to have gained seven pounds, but said he wants to add an additional 13 pounds to get to 195 pounds before he gets to Athens.

"I am just ready to get after it and compete," he said. "I am ready to work."

Jones will starting working on June 5th – when he plans to enroll at Georgia.
