Recruiting: DeQuinta Jones Has Wandering Eyes

Defensive end DeQuinta Jones of Bastrop, La., has been verbally committed since mid-summer to Michigan. The 6-2, 265-pound Jones is athletic and runs a 4.7. He is strong with a big bench press and squat. He showed how strong and athletic he was in person when he attended camp at Oklahoma State this summer.

DeQuinta Jones has continued to prove all of that during his senior season at Bastrop. They are 5-0 and readying to battle fellow powerhouse Evangel Christian this coming Friday.

"Our season is going good," said Jones. "We are undefeated with Evangel coming to our place this week. I feel like I am playing good. I think I have 20 something tackles and some sacks. I am happy overall."

Okay, so how about recruiting? Jones has been committed to Michigan but other schools haven't been taking no for an answer, and Jones really isn't saying no.

"I am committed to them but I have wandering eyeballs," said Jones. "I have been noticing Oklahoma State and they are looking pretty good. They have been winning games like that one on Saturday.

"I have wandering eyeballs for Alabama. They have been playing really good. I have my eyes on Arkansas and California, too."

Jones said he has not been to any games but when his season is over he will decide how many visits to take and how wandering his eyeballs can be.
