Texas Tech LB coach Johnny Barr (former OU linebacker coach) was tasked with the responsibility of securing Jones' commitment.
"Coach Barr is really friendly...easy-going guy, I like him."
Although Jones still has yet to speak with head coach Mike Leach, he did meet the rest of the staff.
So which coach is the funniest/coolest to hang with?
"I liked Coach Ruffin McNeal the best," said Jones. "He's pretty funny, had a nice conversation with him and he's a great coach."
McNeal will be Jones' position coach, so nice to see them two getting off to great start.
The soon-to-be 3-year (varsity) starter notched 89 tackles, 9 TFLs, and 2 sacks in his junior campaign, but expects to blow up the stat sheet a little more in his final season as a prep.
Jones claims a 400-pound bench, 550 squat and 280 (power) clean. If that's the case, the 6-0, 268-pounder will add plenty of muscle/strength to the Red Raider DT depth chart.
According to Jones, he's clocking 5.0 (forty times), 4.55 (shuttle times).
Accolades: 1st-team all-district selction in '02, Newcomer of the Year in '01.
ACT/SAT: Already qualified on both.
"Tell the Red Raider fans that I'm ready to get out there and go to work!"
