The following information was revealed during our interview with Alfred Jones:

When did you arrive in Oxford? "On Thursday. I left yesterday."

Who was your host? "Mike Espy. I really just chilled with Mike for the most part. We went out Thursday night and then we just kicked it Friday night with a few of his boys. Mike is real cool."

What new did you learn about Ole Miss that you did not know from before? "I learned that it is a lot more diverse and active than what I thought. I thought it was going to be boring with nothing to do."

Did you feel like you fit in with the players and coaches at Ole Miss? "Oh yea, most definitely."

What most did you like about your trip at Ole Miss? "The facilities. They have the best facilities I have ever seen. They have the best by far. I liked the coaching staff a whole lot too. You can tell they are going to do big things."

What factors were your looking for before you arrived on your visit? "I wanted to see where I would fit in, scheme wise, and how I would fit in, socially."

What were your thoughts on those two issues? "They want to build their defense around me, at rush end. I liked that a lot. And socially, I feel I fit in real good."

What are your thoughts on Coach Orgeron? "Man, he is just a real down to earth guy. He is easy to talk to, and he is a real high energy dude."

What all did you and Coach Orgeron discuss during your one on one meeting? "Just their defense and how I would fit in. Just how important I was and what they are trying to do."

Did he ask you to commit? "I mean, when they offer you, that is what they want you to do."

And your response was? "That, I was going to take my visit to Miami next weekend and then make a decision. I am going to keep everyone on pins and needles until then."

Did Ole Miss improve its position with you? "Yea, most definitely. It will come down to Ole Miss, Miami, and LSU."

Any inhome visits this week? "Coach Cullan (Ole Miss) is suppose to come by on Wednesday. Miami is bringing in their staff on Thursday."

Al carries a 2.7 GPA and a 17 on the ACT.
