Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde 2015 quarterback Sheriron Jones is one of the top dual-threat passers in the West in his class.

Known more as a runner, Jones plans to hit as many camps as he can this spring to continue to show he's just as dangerous as a passer.

"I'm a dual threat guy so the Elite 11, I think I learned a lot and with me being a dual threat guy, most of the time I'm in shotgun. So going to Elite 11, I'm not used to 7-step drops. But the coaches are great and worked on me and I'm hoping to get better at that," said Jones.

Jones said working on that will be big for him moving forward.

"It helps me a lot and I can show my coach I can do that in high school and then he'll put in a under center formation and it will show scouts I'm not just a shot gun guy. We're already working on using different packages this year, so I'm glad they showed me some different things," said Jones.

Jones landed a Big Ten offer this week from Indiana and the Hoosiers follow Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado and Akron in offering the four-star.

"I'm hearing a lot from Texas A&M, Washington, USC and UCLA too," said Jones. "Texas A&M is a big one, they're coming to see me this month and then in the spring and I talk to them a lot."

The Washington coaches were watching him when they were at Boise State and now that they're in Seattle, they're still watching him and his former receiver, Damorea' Stringfellow, had a good freshman season for the Huskies.

"I got to throw to Damorea' as a sophomore and he told me some things about Washington and the school that I like," said Jones.

UCLA signed one of his lineman last year, Poasi Moala, and Jones is interested in the local school.

"Poasi blocked for me and did a good job so it would be cool to have him block some more," said Jones.

And new USC coach Steve Sarkisian recruited Stringfellow to Washington and was able to see Jones when he was scouting him.

"USC is another good school and they're doing a new offense," said Jones.

But Jones said just because players from his school went on to those colleges, it doesn't make him a shoo-in to follow suit.

"I don't want to go to those schools just because they're there," said Jones. "But I will if it's a good fit, I like the coaches and the offenses are good."

Jones said he plans to attend a number of college camps this spring and summer but will only do team 7on7.
