Jones Talks Camp

Homestead (Fla.) South Dade standout running back Charlie Jones was so tired after the third day of UM's camp today that he missed receiving an award that he won.

Jones was named co-MVP for running backs following the camp (along with Samson Taylor).

"I didn't even stay for that stuff," Jones said. "I just took off my cleats and left as soon as they were done talking to us."

The standout running back said he enjoyed the camp experience.

"I had a good time," he said. "They had some competition out there for me and I enjoyed it. I ran a 4.5 and think I did pretty good in all the drills and stuff."

Jones had a chance to meet Willie Williams for the first time yesterday.

"I've been hearing a lot about him and everything and yesterday I got a chance to meet him and talk to him," he said. "We just talked about the camp, we talked about Miami, and stuff like that."

Jones said he was very impressed with Williams at the camp on Sunday.

"He's like the biggest guy out there and he can still turn and run with just about anyone," he said. "He's like a freak or something. Brouce Mompremier was also out there and he stood out to me. Other than that, nobody really caught my eye."

Jones said his experience at the UM camp didn't do anything to hurt Miami's chances.

"I really like it there," he said. "They're still at the top of my list but I'm not ready to make any decisions or anything like that yet."

Jones, who will attend FIU's 7-on-7 passing tournament that's coming up soon, was also at Bishop & Dullighan Camp last week.

"That was a lot of fun," he said. "We got to put on the shoulder pads and my shoulder was a little sore at the end. I needed that, though because I need to get it back into shape for the season."
