Richetti Jones Delays Decision Until Aug. 27

We caught up with standout defensive end/linebacker Richetti Jones of Dallas (Lincoln) Texas, one of the top 25 prospects in the nation, late Saturday and found out the exact plans on his scheduled commitment announcement. The 6-4, 245-pound dynamite package had planned to make his college decision public this Sunday, Aug. 20, but now the decision will come a week from Sunday on Aug. 27.

Jones will make his announcement on Fox Sports Southwest from their Dallas studio following the telecast of the Texas Rangers-Oakland Athletics game also airing on Fox Sports Southwest.

"We had to do it when they could schedule it," Jones said talking about the folks at Fox Sports Southwest.

Jones has talked about Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M as his choices. He said those schools haven't changed. He also added that practices are going well for the Lincoln Tigers as they prepare for their opening game of the season with Dallas Roosevelt.

Jones has visited, unofficially, all of the schools he is listing, but has actually been up to Oklahoma State on seven occassions. He has brought other prospects with him and has visited friends and relatives. One of his best friends is OSU basketball point guard Byron Eaton and he is a cousin to current Cowboy football freshman defensive back Al'Darius Thompson.

That announcement on Aug. 27 should come between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
