Oklahoma High School Junior Prospects

HOUSTON JONES Oklahoma City Northeast Quarterback 6-2, 185, 4.5 <BR><BR> Playing in just five games during the 2003 season because of a broken thumb, Jones still managed to pass for 651 yards and five touchdowns, while running for 373 yards and five scores.

Because of the time missed in 2003, HOUSTON JONES, the multi-threat quarterback will virtually be learning the QB position on the fly. "Honestly, I've never been a quarterback," said Jones. "Coach (Ron Kroeger) just told me that I fit the mold of the quarterback of the future because I can run and throw." Jones hasn't narrowed his college choices yet, choosing to put that process off until after passing the ACT. "I'm taking a lot of schools into consideration," Jones said. "But I want to get that test taken care of first." Jones averaged 7.7 yards per carry last season. Although Jones' Northeast squad went 2-8 in 2003, one of the Vikings' two wins was a 41-14 upset of El Reno. In Jones, Kroeger sees vast potential. "He reminds me of (Missouri quarterback) Brad Smith," said Kroeger. "He's a phenomenal athlete."
