Jones talks about his visit to Southern Miss and updates his overall recruiting

Southern Miss gets a visit from 3 star LB Juwuan Jones of Lanier High School in GA..

Juwuan Jones is a talented 3 star LB from Lanier HS in GA, who took the trip west to Hattiesburg last week for a visit to a Southern Miss practice.  

The 3 star came away impressed with what he saw and heard from the coaches.  

"It went really well, I was very impressed with everything I saw from the campus to the facilities," Jones told  

"The coaching staff was clear that they really wanted me at Southern Miss."  

He said the offer first came to him when Coach Wozniak got a hold of his film.

"Coach Woz told me he saw me on film and got it to the head man who said right away, 'man we need to offer this kid," he said.  

"I was excited to get an offer from them, they are a real up and coming program and have a lot going for them over there."

Jones also holds offers to Wisconsin, Troy, and Mercer in addition to his offer to Southern Miss.

He also said he's very interested in Southern Miss because he has family that lives in Noxubee County.
