Jones, 6-0, 160 pounds is one of the nation's finest players and the No. nine overall player in the West region. He's the type of deep threat or home run hitter that every college is looking for. As a junior, Jones caught 39 passes for 1,476 yards (37.8 ave.) and 16 touchdowns to earn 1st team All-State Underclass and Student Sports Junior All-American honors.
Jones has improved every year we've seen him, particularly his hands. As a junior, he still ran mainly deep routes, which is what you want someone who has clocked a 10.4 in the 100m to do. We would love to see Jones show the ability to take a short pass and take off with it but it hasn't been a part of Poly's offense the past two years.
Jones is just as accomplished in track as he is football and will definitely double sport in college. He was hurt most of this past track season and wasn't able to qualify for the state track finals after running a 10.44-100m at the Arcadia track meet earlier in the season.
"I'm definitely looking to do both sports in college and every school recruiting me has told me that wouldn't be a problem," Jones said. "Right now, I like USC, Oregon, Miami, Texas, Florida State and UCLA. I want to take all five of my official visits before I make my decision. Right now, I'm not planning to visit either L.A school since it's so close and I can just take an unofficial visit there. I'll probably be ready to decide sometime close to Signing Day."
