West Jeff OL getting a look

The recruit attracting the most attention out of West Jefferson High School has been defensive lineman Marlon Favorite, but he has a teammate you might not have heard about.<br><br>And that could change between now and signing day.

Jeremy Jones is a 6-foot-4, 280-pound tight end who projects as an offensive lineman in college. He is in Mississippi State this weekend and will go to Alabama, Auburn and LSU later this month - in that order. Each school has offered him a scholarship.

Jones is just hitting recruiting radar this year because it was his first playing football. On the down side, he suffered a torn ACL recently but is expected to make a full recovery after surgery.

For a team with a scholarship to give, Jones might make a good investment based on his size, speed (4.8) and agility.
