Jarvis Jones happy with Muschamp decision

Four star linebacker Jarvis Jones had a painful end to his senior season after he broke his left hand in three places three weeks ago. His season officially came to an end when he elected to have surgery on Monday. Jones shared his thoughts on Texas and its decision to announce that defensive coordinator Will Muschamp is Head Coach in Waiting.

Jarvis Jones is one of the most highly rated defensive players in the country that has yet to commit to a school, so every little story that might affect his thinking gets dissected. The Columbus, Georgia prospect from Carver High thought very highly of the move of Texas to announce that linebacker coach and defensive coordinator Will Muschamp is the Head Coach in waiting for the Texas Longhorns, one of Jones' final seven schools.

"I think it is very big for Coach Muschamp and the University. He's such a good coach and person as well, I'm just very happy for him."

Jones has officially visited USC (October 31) and has taken unofficial visits to LSU (November 8) and Florida (November 15) in recent weeks. Jones says he will take officials to LSU and Florida. Georgia, Texas, Auburn, and Clemson are vying for the final two official visits.

The 6-3.5, 220 pound Jones confirmed to Burnt Orange Beat that a December banquet weekend visit is still possible for the Longhorns, and if that timing did not work out, a January visit is still in the cards.

As a junior for the 15-0 state champs, Jones tallied 157 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, three quarterback sacks and two interceptions.
