"I got great closing speed and I just have a knack for the ball," Jones said. "Whenever I'm on the field, I feel like I'm in control. Don't throw my way."
At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Jones kicked off his season with 2 catches for 25 yards on Saturday while registering six tackles and one pass breakup. Unfortunately, his team lost 2-0 in that opener.
Reshad Jones, who also plays basketball and runs track, is coming off a busy summer. He went to camps at four different schools.
"I went to Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, and LSU," he said. "I had fun. It was a good learning experience and I got to see those schools a little better too."
The talented defender, who is a full academic qualifier thanks to a 1590 on the new SAT (1060 on the old scale), isn't really focused on the recruiting stuff right now.
"I plan on taking all my visits and probably won't commit until right around signing day," he said. "I'm still wide open. I'm not even sure which ones I might visit. It's wide open."
Some of the ones agreed to as under consideration at this point are Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Michigan, Florida, and Miami. He talked more about the Hurricanes.
"They got all that winning tradition," he said. "Miami produces. They send a lot of athletes onto the next level, too."
Jones, who claims a verbal offer from UM, said the Hurricanes will likely get a visit.
"They're on the list and I'm definitely interested in learning more about them, checking them out," he said. "I wanna see what it's like to see if I can fit in or whatever."
