On the SMU radar

After recording 12 touchdowns last season as a junior, this 5A wide receiver has opened the eyes of many college programs, including SMU. Come inside to hear his story. Is SMU one of his favorites? We have the answers.

Sometimes getting reps is more important than taking a step to the next level. It was something that Westfield's Christian Jones learned as a sophomore in 2008.

Behind three quality seniors, the coaching staff thought it was important for Jones to get reps on the junior varsity. The moved paid off. Jones was thrusted into the No. 1 wide receiver spot on this year's Mustang squad and flourished. He recorded 37 catches, for 769 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"I would say that I more of an explosive type of receiver. I like to make big plays down the field. Even if the play is short, I'm trying to turn it into a long play," said Jones.

At 6'3, 196 pounds, the junior has attracted many schools, even with only one year of varsity experience. Currently SMU, TCU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Houston, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Iowa, Iowa, and Kentucky have expressed interest.

"I'm looking for a school that is a good fit for me and that is perfect academically," said Jones. "Right now, I don't have any favorites. I like them all pretty equally. I'm just keeping my options open."

While he is keeping his options open, he does know about SMU and what the program achieved in 2009.

"I know quite a bit about SMU. I actually had a cousin that played for them. His name was Marcello Simmons ," said Jones.

If the name sounds familiar it should, Simmons was the first Mustang to be drafted after the death penalty in 1993.

"I would say it is a little more attractive because they throw the ball so much, but I wouldn't consider it a driving force for me," said Jones. "I'm not really that big of a stats type of guy. I just want to win. I don't mind blocking for a running back. The team comes first in my book."

Westfield went 8-5 this year, losing to the Cypress Ridge in the playoffs. Jones runs a 4.5 forty.
