Recruiting: Cowboys Add Another Receiver

Anthony Jones may not be the tallest, strongest or fastest receiver that signs with Oklahoma State on Wednesday, but it's hard to argue with the numbers the Arlington (Seguin), Texas, product put up the past two high school seasons. The 6-foot, 167-pound wide receiver made an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State this past weekend and decided to commit on the spot, becoming the fifth receiver who has pledged to sign with the Cowboys on Wednesday, the first day of the signing period.

Jones said it was not a difficult choice. "Oklahoma State has a nice program. When I visited there I just felt like I was at home," said Jones, who becomes the 28th commitment for the Cowboys.

Jones caught more than 130 passes the past two seasons – spending his 2005 season at Seguin High School in Arlington and his junior year at Rickards High School in Tallahassee, Fla. This past season at Seguin he caught 63 passes for 920 yards and eight touchdowns in helping the Dragons to the Class 4A playoffs and a 9-3 record. For his efforts he was named the Utility Player of the Year in District 4A-7. A year ago, as a junior in Florida, had caught 68 passes for 1,113 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Jones was definitely impressed with what he saw on his first ever trip to Stillwater. "I think the coaches were really great," he said. "Coach (Curtis) Luper was cool to be around. My visit to Oklahoma State was better than (my visit to) Florida State. They're building a new stadium and that's going to be nice. Plus, it's a football town."

Jones is a three-star standout who is ranked as the fifth-best receiver in the state of Texas by Texpreps.com.
