Jones visits Athens

Like a lot of folks in his situation, Carver's Jarvis Jones wants to take it slow.

After all, when you are considered one of the top linebackers in Georgia and have offers from multiple schools taking your time is a smart option. And that's just what Jones has decided to do.

"I am just taking things slow right now because I want to see what all of the schools have to offer," Jones said.

Today he went to see what Georgia has to offer, and he said he liked it.

"I liked it pretty good," Jones admitted. "It was everything I expected. I saw them practice, and I thought it was pretty intense."

Georgia has two linebackers, ECI's Dexter Moody and Chestatee's Chase Vasser, already committed to them. Early County's Shawn Williams, who committed over the weekend, is considered a safety. In the recent past Jones has expressed a slight concern about the number the Dawgs have at that spot.

"I wonder sometimes about the number of linebackers they have signed, but the coaches at Georgia and Clemson both say they want me to come there," Jones said in February.

Jones spent time today with two important coaches in Georgia's staff.

"I talked with Coach Richt and Coach Jancek," Jones said. "They were telling me how interested they were in me coming to Georgia. They told me that I would come there and play."

The last statement is not a surprised. Jones' film is impressive. He's been getting attention from colleges around the South and the rest of the country for some time. He was also named to various all-star lists after leading Carver to a state championship.

It won't be easy for Georgia to pick up a commitment from Jones. Not only is Jones interested in weighing all of his options, but the Dawgs are facing competition from an increasingly-present out-of-state foe: Clemson.

"I knew that Georgia was going to be a great place to visit, and it's going to be a great school. I am supposed to go up to Clemson next week sometime. I expect something similar to Georgia," Jones said.
