"He said they started 15 true freshmen this year," added Jones. "He thinks I will have a really good shot at competing for a position."
The position the Tar Heels would love to see Jones play next season is safety. His hard hitting ability, speed (4.55 forty-yard dash time), and defensive awareness (8 interceptions) give him the potential to not only start but also excel at either strong or free safety positions.
Jones claims to be wide open while having a completely empty official visit schedule despite rumors and reports.
"I'm still open right now," remarked Jones. "No sir, no visits set up yet, but North Carolina is definitely a place I want to visit."
Closing his high school career, Jones caught 21 passes for 390 yards and six touchdowns from his wide receiver position.
