The 6-foot-0, 190-pound Jones said college coaches are telling him he can play anywhere he likes, and he does play a variety of positions for Millwood. "I want to play running back," he said. "Some schools think I might be able to play quarterback, but I think I'm too short."
The May evaluation period has arrived, and coaches are beginning to make the trek to Millwood to get a peek at Jones. "Texas Tech has been here, and Michigan coach Scot Loeffler was here on Tuesday," Jones said. "Michigan has sent me a lot of information on their school and program, and I'm definitely going to take a closer look at them." Jones added that he does have an offer Michigan.
Jones said he is in no rush to make a decision, preferring to take all of his official visits before doing so. "Those will play a big role in my decision," he said. "I want to major in physical therapy so I want to know what the schools have to offer in that area. I've researched the programs at Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, and I know Michigan and Notre Dame have good programs in my major."
Another factor that Jones said he is taking a close look at is playing time. "I don't want to sit; I want to come in and play right away," he said. "I'll also be looking at team unity. If I go out of state I want my team to be like a family."
No spring combines are on the schedule for Jones, and he said he doesn't anticipate taking part in any team summer camps. He said he attended the Oklahoma spring game.
