Top DE Prospect Eddie Jones Makes Decision

Kilgore DE <b>Eddie Jones</b>, one of the top defensive end prospects in the country, pulled the commitment trigger in favor of Texas. Not unexpected, but alas, the 6-3, 225-pounder did make his intentions official when giving UT an oral pledge early Saturday…

"I talked to Coach Mack Brown this morning and told him, ‘Coach this is the place I want to be. This is the type of environment I want to be a part of and I feel at home here,'" Kilgore DE Eddie Jones told

And Coach Brown's reaction?

"He loved it, and it put a smile on his face," Jones said.

Asked if there was anything in particular about his trip to UT today that sealed the deal, Jones told us, "No, I just felt that (UT) was the place for me. This was where my heart was reachin', I wanted to commit and get it over with, so I did. And, now I can focus on my senior season."

We'll have more information from our Eddie Jones interview either in an IT Membrs Only report or in this week's Inside Scoop.
