Jones Updates On His Visit Plans

ShowMeMizzou.com has the latest on this Georgia Athlete's plans to make an unofficial visit to the University of Missouri as he takes a mini tour of schools in the region to help narrow his list of schools.

ShowMeMizzou.com checked in with 2013 WR prospect Donovahn Jones  6'3"  195  4.45  Hampton (GA) Dutchtown, who is planning a visit to Missouri later this week.  Jones and his family have had to delay their trip west since Jones is participating in a 7-on-7 tournament earlier this week.

Jones indicated to ShowMeMizzou.com that they will travel through Arkansas, where he will visit Arkansas State and Arkansas, before heading north into Missouri.  Jones said that they would visit Missouri later in the week, either before or after visiting family in the KC area.

"Probably Thursday or Friday,"  replied Jones, when I asked him when he thought they might be at Missouri. 

Jones then went on to talk about his timeline for a decision.

"I'm going to try to narrow it down to about five schools,"  explained Jones.   "I'm going to try to do that by August 6th, narrow it down."

Jones then went on to say that he will likely make a decision "after the football season".  Jones talked about some of what he wants to see in a program.

"I want to see how the coaches treat the players, and how hard the kids work,"  said Jones.  "I know every school has facilities, but I want to see how the campus is, if it's somewhere that I could be for the next four years."

We'll have more from Jones later.
