Is Jones Officially Blue?

Things certainly began looking promising for the Michigan Wolverines recently in their pursuit of Bastrop (LA) DE DeQuinta Jones. Has he officially joined the fold for the Maize & Blue? GBW talked to his mother and father.

"No he hasn't committed to no one," Jones' mother Belinda Jones told GoBlueWolverine earlier this evening. "Where did you get that from? I haven't heard that and I'm his mother."

GoBlueWolverine spoke with Jones' father Bowman Moore minutes later (for the second time today) and he echoed those sentiments.

"No that's not true," he said. "DeQuinta hasn't committed to Michigan. I've had him out on this farm working to earn some money for school clothes. He didn't commit to anybody yet."

Despite the news that a commitment hasn't yet occurred, Michigan's chances remain excellent due in large part to his strong relationship with Michigan assistant Jay Hopson (with whom he chatted with earlier today).
