Karim Jones is big wide receiver that loves to get
and why shouldn't he. I've seen Jones listed at 6'4" and 6'5" but the
out from Maryland said that, "I am 6'3" 210 right now."
#4 Karim Jones
Jones is listed as having a 4.62 forty time, but
make no mistake
Jones' game is all about being physical. "I'm a specialized 3rd
guy," says Karim Jones. "I like catching the ball using my body,
ball in short yardage and getting the hard yardage. Personally I love
balls, I'll go after all passes thrown my way and get them, I also like
block for running backs, I like getting physical."
This qualifies as a jump ball and getting physical!
Jones also knows what he needs to work on this coming year, "I'm not going to lie. I need to work on my speed," says Jones. "I'm will be running track this year and will continue to work on all parts of my game."
Karim did tell us that he received his first D-I offer from the University of New Mexico a couple of days ago. "I spoke with Coach J (J.B. Gerald) and New Mexico has given me my first official D-I offer," said Jones. "I didn't really even consider them at first, but I have some friends that I grew up with and played football with down there and they tell me a lot of great things about New Mexico. I also like the coaches."

"I probably won't make my decision till basketball season starts," says Jones. "That allows me to explore all my options."
I did tell
Karim that we will be following his
recruiting from now on and he did express his thanks to all the fans
following him now.
