At 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds, Jones played high school football at South River High in Maryland. Even though he was a qualifier out of high school, he decided to enroll into a Junior College to get more recruiting looks.
A 2014 high school graduate, Jones played this past season at ASA College in Brooklyn. That's when he really elevated his game and started getting major recruiting looks.
Ohio State and Virginia Tech were his first two major offers and he took official visits to both schools. Miami jumped into the mix at some point during the season. He took an official visit here earlier this month and committed to the Canes last week.
Jones, who will have four years to play three, played left tackle at ASA this past season but projects as either a right tackle or a guard at Miami.
One of six Hurricane offensive line commitments, Jones becomes Miami's second Junior College signee this month, joining tight end Jerome Washington. Both players are set to start school next month.
