Suwanee, Ga., Peachtree Ridge High School linebacker Kam Jones just left campus on Sunday after his official visit to the University of Louisville concluded, but he already can't wait to get back up again.
And Jones won't have to wait long.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Jones has been committed to the Cardinals since July and said he will enroll at U of L next month. He'll report to campus on Jan. 7 and start classes the next day.
"I just can't wait," Jones said. "It gave me chills to know I was going to be part of that program so soon.
"I'm just so excited to get there and get started."
Jones said there hasn't been any wavering on his part about his commitment to the Cardinals. But even if there had been the official visit went a long way to showing him he made the perfect pick.
"The official locked me in," he said. ""It made me love the school so, so much. They rolled out the red carpet for me and made me feel really special. I wanted to know more about the academics and wanted to see some more about the city and the campus."
"They talked a lot more about academics and lifestyle. It was all great."
Jones is the sixth-ranked inside linebacker in the state of Georgia and checks in as the No. 48 inside linebacker in the country.
Jones' father, Tony Jones, played in the NFL for 13 seasons, winning two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos as a starting offensive lineman. The elder Jones played for Western Carolina.
