“I’ve been down to Rutgers a few times, and I liked it,” Jamir Jones said. “The last time was when my brother went there on a visit. I liked it a lot when I was there. I didn’t pay a ton of attention, but I remember thinking it was one of my favorites.”
“Quentin comes back a lot, and I work out at the same gym as him,” Jones said. “He talks a lot about Rutgers and how much of a family they are. We talk about it, but not much more than that.”
Jones’ older brother chose Notre Dame over more than 20 scholarship offers.
“He’s told me basically to just keep working hard and explore all of my options,” Jones said. “I have to keep my grades up, and that’s probably the most important thing I can be doing right now. The academics are important because one day football isn’t going to be there. You need to get a degree.”
“It’s definitely a blessing but I’ve been working hard at this,” Jones said. “I’m going to keep working to get attention from a lot of schools. I’m going to be taking a lot of visits this winter and in the spring once basketball is down.”
