Hezekiah Jones Talking Longhorns and More

Four-star wide receiver lands offer from one of his dream schools. Hezekiah Jones checks in at 6-foot, 187-pounds from Stafford (Texas) Jones is one of the most heavily recruited wide receiver prospects in the country despite being in the class of 2017.

Hezekiah Jones holds offers from Baylor, Florida, Houston, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, UCLA and Maryland to name a few.

”I'm in track practice right now, so I'm not doing much in the spring right now,” Jones said. “My last meet is on Saturday so I'll be good to go next week. My speed is my biggest strength and catching the deep ball. I have to work on my double moves more.”

Jones will have an extremely busy next couple of months.

”I got invited to the Prime 21 camp,” Jones said. “My 7v7 team qualified for the IMG 7v7 tournament and my school 7v7 team is most likely going to make it to State. I also planned to go to the Baylor camp and Texas A&M camp. And a visit down to Oregon, most likely to Texas, Miami, UF, and Florida St.”

The Texas offer was big for Jones and his family.

”This was an offer I've been waiting for since freshman year,” Jones said. “That's one of my favorite colleges when I was a kid. They have so much tradition in that program, and it looks like Coach Strong is changing things around over there. I've never spoken to him, but he seems cool.”

Why is he one of the top wideout prospects in the country?

”I feel like I have the playmaking ability that most people don't have,” Jones said. “I am a major deep threat and I have a motor that doesn't stop.”

Inside the Numbers:

2014: Jones had a breakout sophomore season with 28 catches for 551 yards and six touchdowns on 19.7 yards per catch.
