Richard Jones Opens Up His Recruitment

Scout.com Texas Top 100 prospect Richard Jones, an early commitment to Missouri, has decided to take a step back and open himself back up. He wants to make sure his college decision is a sound one. The Tigers remain in the hunt, but a couple of other Big 12 programs are in the hunt as well. He talks about all of that with Scout.com in the report below…

"Right now, I just want to think everything through and make sure I make a good decision," Richard Jones explaining that he wants to open himself back up said. "My parents thought I should commit to Missouri because they were the only school calling me at the time, and so I did. So, I would like to open up the recruiting process again."

Done…

So, who has officially offered the 6-0.5, 270-pound DT from La Marque?

"I have official offers from Colorado State, Missouri, Texas Tech, Rice and U of H," Jones told Scout.com. "Right now, Texas Tech is No. 1 and Missouri is No. 2."
