Will Jones Make One More Trip?

Wide receiver Gerald Jones is committed to Tennessee, but may make one more visit. The Oklahoma City (Ok.) Millwood High School star is an electrifying four-star athlete that could play running back, wide receiver or defensive back.

The U.S. Army All-American made his college commitment to the University of Tennessee back in November. Despite his decision to become a Volunteer, other schools have knocked on his door -- but no one has persuaded him to make a visit.

That may change with the University of North Carolina, as Jones is deciding whether or not to make an official visit to Chapel Hill.

"Through the recruiting process I got to know Coach (John) Blake very well and I like him," said Jones of UNC's new recruiting coordinator, who arrived from Nebraska. "He has told me to come check out UNC and I am thinking about it.

"To be honest, I need to sit down with my mom and talk with her about it. So if I decided to visit North Carolina it would be next weekend (Feb. 2)."

Jones was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Oklahoma and is a member of the Scout.com National Top 100.

SCOUTING REPORT: Jones is blessed with good size and even better speed and quickness. He can start and stop on a dime and has a great change of direction. He is terrific in space because of his ability to make people miss. He can run between the tackles and certainly has the speed to take it around the edge. Jones shows good vision and just has instincts for the game that you can not teach. He also has the uncanny ability to make the big play.Gerald Jones Profile
