Jarron Jones, a 6-foot-6, 305-pound defensive tackle from Aquinas Institute has already visited Syracuse and has offers from six other schools and talked to us on Thursday about his thoughts on the Orange.
"I went up to Syracuse for junior day and it was pretty cool up there," Jones said. "I actually kind of like Syracuse. I took a tour around the facilities and the football offices and then went to their basketball game against Villanova. The game was crazy because everybody was there and it was just wild."
"I talked to the coaching staff afterward and it went pretty good," Jones added. "They said a lot of things I liked, especially academically. They talked about support that they give students and then told me they did like me on the defensive side of the ball."
"Coach (Doug) Marrone is a pretty straight up guy and was pretty cool with me. He's very down to earth for a head coach, I can say that. I also met Coach (Tyrone) Wheatley and Coach (Scott) Schafer while I was there too."
Syracuse didn't get into when they might offer Jones which doesn't really concern him at this point. He does have offers from Penn State, North Carolina, Boston College, Rutgers, Connecticut and Buffalo.
