The number of safety recruits for the Michigan Wolverines has dwindled in recent weeks, but one of the more prominent prospects still on the board is Atlanta, (GA) safety Reshad Jones. The 6-2 180-pounder has not yet set up any official visits, though, and concentrating on primarily his high school season. "I haven't put much thought into it as far as schools go yet," Jones said. "I'm planning on setting up my visits once the season is over. Things are going real good. I have like 65 tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery. We're 5-2."
Jones has over thirty offers to date, but isn't quite ready to narrow his list down. That said, when asked if any schools stuck out for him at this point, he rattled off six names. "Right now I'd say Miami, Oklahoma, LSU, Florida, Georgia….and Michigan."
Jones indicated that all of the aforementioned programs have made a priority. The Peach State Star told GatorCountry.com earlier this week that the opportunity to get on the field right away at Michigan was one of the factors in their favor. When asked how serious he was about the Wolverines, he pointed out that they were right in the thick of it. "Coach Loeffler has been by my school," Jones said. "They've sent me a lot of letters and stuff. They've told me I could come in and play. Michigan will probably be one of my visits."
With Michigan being the northern most university on his list, the distance from home and weather could be factors other schools attempt to use against them. Location, however, will not be a factor in his final choice according to Jones. "I haven't really been up north before, but distance from home won't be a factor," he said. "It's going to depend on playing time and how I'm treated."
