FELIX JONES Tulsa Washington Quarterback 6-0, 185, 4.5 <BR><BR> Jones was the Hornets' starting tailback when the 2003 season started but only played in two games before breaking his ankle. But that hasn't stopped college coaches from all over the nation from calling on him.


"He's a guy that's real hungry," said Washington head coach Antwann Jimmerson. "Once he got hurt, he worked really hard in the weight room and you can see the difference. "He's an outstanding kid, a great individual."

Jimmerson said the Hornets will look for Jones to be a major player in the offense this season after losing two Division I receivers from last year's team (Quentin Chaney and Demarrio Ousley). He showed that he could do the job as a sophomore when he rushed for more than 900 yards while starting just six games.

As a sophomore, Jones attended the Nike Combine where he ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash. He has been on the radar of college coaches ever since.

"He has a lot of offers already," Jimmerson said.
