Tailback Jones Returns From ND Camp

<P>One prospect who attended Notre Dame's camp has returned. Florence, MS prospect Corey Jones worked out for the coaches. Did he come away with an offer? </P>

Corey Jones rushed for 1670 yards and 21 touchdowns last year. He is 5-10 and 180 pounds and ran a 4.44 at Notre Dame's camp this year. He just returned and he is what he had to say about the camp.

"I didn't get an offer. I didn't catch the ball well and they said they wanted to watch me catch the ball my senior year. They said they liked me but they would have to wait to see how I catch the ball my senior year."

Jones has been to camp at Alabama, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Marshall and Notre Dame. "The only offer I have right now is West Virginia. They said they needed someone with my kind of speed. I really liked it there."

I asked Corey if he had a leader at this point. "Well, I would have to say West Virginia, they are my only offer so far. I like Marshall, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and Southern Mississippi as well.

Comments. He is a nice kid. He seemed disappointed that Notre Dame didn't offer. Not sure if Notre Dame is still interested. He seemed to like Notre Dame more than he was saying but was unsure if they were interested. Just an assumption on my part.
