Daryl Jones Talks Top Five & More

Spring WR/RS <b>Daryl Jones</b> has a top five at this point in the process. He talks about those five, specifically who has stepped up to the plate with an offer, plus which teams have indicated that he can in fact play both baseball and football at their school and more...

"My favorites are Miami, Stanford (offered), Georgia Tech (offered), Northwestern (offered) and UT," Daryl Jones told Scout.com. "Texas A&M, Rice, Stanford, Georgia Tech and Northwestern have all said I can ply both baseball and football."

Noticing the Horns were back in the mix for the 3-star wide receiver, Jones said, "They still call. They've been recruiting me since the spring. I talked to Coach Haywood and Coach Bruce Chambers recently and they were calling just to let me know that they're still interested."

UT has failed to ink a receiver in this year's class and perhaps Jones could be an option...

"Well, if they offered, I would definitely have more interest in them," said the Texas Hot 100 No. 59. " But they just signed four wide receivers last year, so I know playing time is going to be hard to come by there. But I would be interested if they decided to offer."

Texas A&M fell off of Jones' list since the last time we spoke with him, what happened?

"I'm still very interested in A&M," Jones said. "They're still in the mix. I'm still waiting to see who else offers. But A&M is definitely a very good option. In fact, I'll be taking an unofficial visit when they play OU. Hopefully, I can talk a little more with the coaches then."

Lost in all of the college football talk, however, is the fact that this kid can play some baseball. He may very well find himself drafted by a Major League team next Summer.

"I have no idea where I might be drafted," said Jones who hit .428, with 3 HRs, almost 30 RBIs and recorded 3 put outs as a junior. "Last year, one of the top baseball players in the nation was expected to go high in the draft, and because of the season he had, he ended up not being taken at all. So, we'll just have to see what happens in the summer. Right now, I like both sports and want to play both in college."
