NYS Top NT Gets Offer From 'Cuse

Of all the Division 1 schools interested in Union-Endicott (Endicott, NY) NT Arthur Jones, one school has come to the forefront with an offer according to head football coach Bart Guccia.

"Syracuse has offered him and that is his only offer as of now,"Guccia said. "Coach Pasqualoni has been here and Syracuse has really been recruiting him the hardest since day one. Syracuse is the frontrunner for him as of now.

Guccia said that Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Iowa, and Wisconsin are also showing interest in Jones. Jones doesn't really have a timetable on when he will decide as of now. Guccia says he could make a decision in the summer or he may wait and take some visits. Guccia also said he is not sure on whether Jones will camp anywhere this summer because he usually wrestles in the summer. Jones is known as one of the best scholastic wrestlers in the country at 275-pounds.

Jones is a 6-foot-3; 270-pound defensive lineman that made First Team All-State and First-Team All-Binghamton Metro Area in 2003. He was the runner-up in the NYS Wrestling tournament at 275-pounds in 2004. He won the state title at 275 pounds in 2003. Jones is widely considered to be one of the top ten football players in New York State in 2005.
