This year will be Wylie East's first year to have a senior class. Last season the Rocky Raiders had a football team full of under-classmen which played a major part in their record finishing at 2-8. One bright spot on the team for this upcoming season is the 6-foot-4 and 195-pound wide receiver, Quan Jones.
Jones finished his sophomore year as his team's second leading receiver last season with 12 catches for 252-yards and one-touchdown. Since then Jones has already received a few offers from Arizona and most recently, from Tennessee. The Sooners along with multiple other programs have also been showing interest in Jones.
A few weeks back Jones was able to attend Oklahoma's summer camp and did what he could to impress the coaches.
"I just went up there and competed at my best," Jones stated. "I did really good and I competed really hard and they really liked me."
The same time that Jones was at the camp was the same time that the number one receiver for the 2012 class, Dorial Green-Beckham, was in town for a visit. Because of that wide receivers coach, Jay Norvell, was not able to work with Jones. Instead, offensive coordinator, Josh Heupel, got a chance to see what the youngster could do.
"I was with Coach Heupel. He was like, 'You are pretty fast and you have good hands. Keep working hard and we will talk to you,'" Jones explained.
While in Norman Coach Heupel took Jones around on a tour of the campus. One thing about the Sooners campus that almost always seems to stick out to prospects is how close everything is to each other. Jones is yet another prospect who likes that aspect about the university as well.
"I like how it's compact together, how everything is together," Jones said. "That's what I like about Oklahoma."
Along with the Oklahoma camp, Jones has also been to Waco (TX) to participate in Baylor's summer camp as well.
"I went to the Baylor camp. It was ok. It was decent. The Oklahoma camp was better because it was more organized then the Baylor camp but it was pretty good though," Jones stated.
After the camp and his tour of the Sooner campus, Oklahoma now tops that list at number one for Jones it sounds.
"They are in the top three," Jones said. "Probably number one."
