Jones-Moore Updates Recruitment

Damion Jones-Moore recently attended Pitt's prospect camp, and wouldn't mind hearing more from the Panthers.

Damion Jones-Moore came to Pitt's prospect camp for a second year in a row. Right away, he noticed the differences between this prospect camp under the new coaching staff. He had more of an opportunity to show what he could do catching the ball—an extra emphasis for the running backs at this year's camp.

"It was a little more upbeat," Jones-Moore said. "It was more of a fast camp, quick and everything. I liked it a lot. It seems like somewhere I could fit in with, real good."

Though he did get more of an opportunity to show what he could do running with the ball, and catching the ball—he enjoyed it so much, that he would have liked even more touches.

"There were a lot of running backs there, so it was really tough to get a chance at every single drill," Jones-Moore added. "During one-on-ones, I only had three opportunities, but you still get to go through everything they've got."

He also had a chance to talk some more with the Pitt coaches, where he picked up a good vibe.

"I like a lot about the new coaching staff," Jones-Moore said. " I talked to them a lot. It was pretty good. I talked the most with coach (Calvin) Magee, the running backs coach."

Jones-Moore holds three offers so far, in the hopes of getting some more.

"Right now I have offers from Toledo, Youngstown State and Ohio University," Jones-Moore added. "I talk to Youngstown a lot. Ohio University, we talk often. Toledo, they came into the school a couple times."

Pitt is one of those schools he would like to add an offer from.

"I'm hoping so," Jones-Moore said. "They said they liked what they saw at camp. I'll be hoping so."

As a junior, Jones-Moore was an all-conference selection and member of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 East. He rushed for 1,074 yards and 17 touchdowns, including six 100-yard games.
