Jones On Bruins' Watch List

The Redlands (Calif.) athlete, Walter Jones, will be watched by UCLA this fall, and a teammate of his could help...

Redlands (Calif.) athlete Walter Jones (6-1, 177), has five offers, but remains wide open, anxious to see what the new season brings him in the way of new offers.

"I'm still keeping it wide open, and I just want to see if things change when the season starts," said Jones.

"I've gotten offers from Utah, Nevada, Washington State, Oregon State and Eastern Washington," said Jones. "And I'm hearing a lot from UCLA, Cal and Arizona State."

Jones knows of three schools that will be getting official visits from him this fall.

"I know I want to visit Washington State, Oregon State and Utah when it fits the schedule during the season," said Jones.

Jones has offers as both a cornerback and as a receiver, and said he's open to either side of the ball.

"I can play corner or I can play receiver, I don't really have a preference," said Jones.

Jones also does track, running the 100m and 200m as well as the long jump and triple jump, and wants to do track in college, but it's not a make-or-break for him.

"I just want the opportunity to do both and I'd like to do both, but I'm football first then track," said Jones.

Jones camped at Arizona State, Cal, Oregon State and UCLA this summer, after a busy track season, and is now set for his senior year, one in which a tough schedule faces the Terriers.

Redlands will scrimmage Lakewood this weekend, then open with Rancho Cucamonga, a top five team in the Southland, face CIF-SS champions Fontana Summit and then take on Los Osos, where Jones will matchup against fellow speedster and two-way threat Victor Bolden.

"Me and Victor are real good friends so we're looking forward to that game," said Jones.

Academically, Jones has a 3.1 and scored a 1650 on the SAT.

Brandon is in his eighth year with FOX Sports NEXT, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the FOX Sports NEXT Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the FOX Sports NEXT network since 2003.
