The Missouri staff has been busy trying to fill the remaining slots in this year's recruiting class. ShowMeMizzou.com checks in with a versatile athlete, in 2013 prospect Donovahn Jones 6'3" 195 4.45 Hampton (GA) Dutchtown, who reports that he has received a scholarship offer to play wide receiver at Missouri.
Jones, who has posted a 39" vertical jump and a 4.12 shuttle, plays QB and safety for Dutchtown, and he's impressive with the ball in his hands.
Jones reports offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, Central Florida, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Georgia State, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina State, South Florida, and Wake Forest, in addition to Missouri. Some schools have offered him on the defensive side of the ball, and he has offers to play both QB and receiver. He said that he doesn't really have a position preference.
"At first, I wanted to play quarterback," explained Jones. "But now, I'm looking at everything."
I asked Jones about his criteria for choosing a school?
"The location, and how fast I'll be able to play," replied Jones. Then, he continued, "just wherever I'm comfortable."
Jones, who said that he would like to study criminal justice in college, said that he would like to visit Missouri next month.
"I'm trying to come to Missouri in July," said Jones.
"I like Missouri," said Jones. "I mean, I know that a lot of receivers get a chance there, like Jeremy Maclin. I could see myself playing wide receiver there."
Jones is not in a big hurry to conclude his recruitment. He said that he will probably wait until after the season to take his official visits and to make his decision.
"That will give me more time to decide," explained Jones, who did later admit that he would prefer to play offense in college.
ShowMeMizzou.com will have more on Jones later.
