Jones, who will take both the SAT and ACT in June, recently received his April ACT score.
"He got a higher score than he did last time – so he's moving up. But he's going to have to take it again," said Perdue.
With that said, the fall semester, which starts in August, is the earliest Jones will be able to enroll at UNC. In the meantime, and in addition to preparing for the June tests, a new NCAA rule will allow Jones to take one post graduate summer school class at Cummings to help bolster his grade point-average.
If things don't go according to plan, Perdue said that Jones would attend one semester at Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy and then enroll at UNC in January.
