Jones Planning Spring Rutgers Visit

East Central (San Antonio, Texas) quarterback Jeremy Jones is gaining momentum after Rutgers verbally offered him a scholarship last month. Adding a second offer and close to finalizing a Rutgers visit, Jones discussed the latest in his recruitment heading into the spring evaluation period.

The majority of schools recruiting quarterback Jeremy Jones anxiously await the start of the spring evaluation period to see the East Central (San Antonio, Texas) prospect in action.

For Jones, however, the 6-foot-5, 190-pound quarterback anxiously awaits a Rutgers visit coming later this month.

Rutgers asked Jones to visit the campus personally after offering him last month and that day will come sometime before the end of spring practice, he said.

"It's really exciting because I guess I don't really have a good picture of Rutgers and how it looks," Jones said. "Coach Spence talks about how I can fit at their school and I'm pretty anxious. I really do want to visit. I want to see the offense. That's the main thing to me."

Quarterbacks coach Rob Spence has been at the head of Jones' recruitment and the two now have a strong relationship.

"I'm getting hand-written [letters] every day," Jones said. "I talk to coach Spence on the phone every few days. He's really a good recruiter. Rutgers is doing a good job and I feel like we have a pretty good relationship now."

Rutgers was first to offer Jones and it has been both a confidence boost and sign of trust, he said.

"It really has been big for me personally," Jones said. "For instance, I went to this Elite 11 camp on Saturday, it's a big confidence boost because there's all those guys that are committed places and have 20 offers. It's good to be in the same category and on the same playing field competing against those guys."

Jones will throw for many schools in the area, including Texas and LSU, this spring but recently added a second offer from Rice.

"I know a couple of guys that go there and went there and I worked out there a couple of times when I was younger," Jones said. "My dad lives in Houston and he took us up there. It's always been a household name. Being close to home isn't going to matter too much but it could be nice."

Texas San Antonio will host Jones this weekend at its spring game and a Rice visit is also in the works, he said.
