If there has been an A&M prospect quietly flying under the radar this season, it would be D. J. Jones. The Denison product started off the season slow with a knee injury, but has been able to put together an impressive senior campaign nonetheless. Jones has his team through the first round of the playoffs and he is starting to pick up interest in where he wants to play college ball. D.J. has stated many times that he wasn't going to worry about recruiting until the end of the season. Now that his senior season is starting to wind down, Jones has started to initiate contact with the A&M coaching staff.

"Im taking my official visit to Texas A&M on December 11th,12th, and 13th. I talked to Coach Sherman and Coach Doll a few days ago and they were telling me they wanted me to come down on those days and see the campus."

D.J. likes A&M, Kansas, and Kansas State as his favorites right now, but if his visit to College Station goes well, and he gets a written offer, D.J. could very well fill one of the last spots in the 2010 recruiting class.

"If everything goes well on my trip I am going to commit. I just want to make sure it's the right fit for me because it's where I am going to be living for the next four years. I just want to feel comfortable. The sooner I can get down there, the sooner I can play."

D.J had 275 all-purpose yards, 175 on the ground, 100 receiving, and 2 touchdowns against Pearce High School in the first round of the playoffs. Next week they play Conrad in the second round. D. J. Jones rushed for over 2000 yards his junior year and has over 20 offers.

"I am more of a power back. I like running in between the tackles and I read the holes well. I know A&M doesn't have that kind of back on campus and Ben Malena is the only other big back in their class. It could be a good fit for me."
