UTSA Lands Corner

One day after landing commit #17 on Monday evening, UTSA's 2015 recruiting class grew to 18 on Tuesday evening.

On Monday, Port Arthur Memorial Safety Cornelius Levine said he was trying to convince his secondary teammate Jacorie Jones to join him as a Roadrunner.

It took about 24 hours to seal the deal.

"I'm feeling pretty excited," Jones said about committing to UTSA on Tuesday.

Jones was a soft commit to Houston, but said that UTSA was where he really wanted to be.

"Yes, I just decided UTSA that was a better fit for me," said Jones. "It's a good program. I like the team chemistry, the way the coaches make you feel right at home."

Jones said he was impressed by the way the 'Runners played Friday in Houston.

"They played good. I love their secondary, they all fly around and make plays," said Jones. The 5'10" 175lb commit will play cornerback for UTSA, but he considers himself a versatile defensive back.

"I like to think of myself of like a Troy Palomalu," said Jones. "Not only do I play corner, I can play all around the defense. When I'm on the field, I'm in a whole other mindset."

When asked about other offers Jones held, he replied with: " I don't really remember and I'm not am really worried about it because UTSA is my final decision."

Jones is the 18th commit to the 2015 class. Here is the entire 2015 recruiting class so far:
