Recruiting: Cowboys Add Standout CB

The Cowboy Orange Blitz recruiting campaign, which was part of the Orange-White spring game day, was successful in several ways. Cornerback Miketavius Jones was on the field before the scrimmage, standing and smiling with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy. We now know why the big smiles as Go Pokes has confirmed that Jones did indeed commit to the Cowboys over the weekend.

"Yes sir, I committed to Oklahoma State and I had been thinking about (doing) it for awhile," confirmed the 5-10 1/2, 170-pound cornerback prospect while on his way back home to the Houston area.

"I had a chance to meet with the coaches and I hit it off, and the environment is what I wanted. I know I will have a good relationship with the coaches and with the players," said Jones, who is following former Galena Park (North Shore) players like Andrae May and Larry Stephens to Stillwater.

Jones said the spring game was good and he spent plenty of time around the Oklahoma State facility on Saturday, arriving at the football offices at 12:30 p.m.

"The facilities are the best I've seen," he added.

Jones said on his drive home Sunday that it had not quit raining yet but with the commitment a load has been lifted for him and he was feeling pretty much opposite the weather as he and his folks were driving through.

Undecided on his major for college, Jones also had offers from Kansas, Rice, Houston, and Baylor, along with interest from a number of schools.

He had right at 60 tackles last season and has very good pass coverage skills. He also told us that he begins spring football at North Shore for veteran head coach David Aymond on April 30.

Jones is being recruited by Oklahoma State associate head coach Joe DeForest, who is a very strong recruiter in the Houston area.
