Georgia Prep Star Enjoys Visit to Vandy

2011 offensive lineman prospect, J.D. Jones, was one of several prospects on hand to take in the Vanderbilt-Eastern Michigan football game a couple of weeks ago. Inside, the Cartersville High product talks about his recent experience in Nashville.

2011 offensive line prospect, J.D. Jones, took a recent visit to Nashville to take in some of the action from the Vanderbilt-Eastern Michigan football game. While on campus the 6-3, 280 pound offensive lineman had the opportunity to get a closer look at VU. Needless to say, he was fairly pleased with what he saw.

It was pretty good visit," Cartersville High standout, shared with "We toured the campus a little bit, and it was really nice up there. I got to see the dorms and some of the other facilities while I was up there. I really liked what I saw."

According to Jones, the ‘Dores were initially recruiting him as a defensive tackle. But after talking in-depth with the coaching staff during his visit, it appears that there's been a slight change of plans. "I don't know if they're recruiting me at defensive tackle anymore, because when I was up there they were talking to me about playing center," said Jones. "They told me that I have big hands, and that I'm very mobile and athletic. They said if I was to come up there, they would try me at center."

Jones shared that he'd prefer to play on the defensive side of the ball in college, but ultimately if he could get on the field early by playing center, he's all for it.

To date, Jones has offers from Tennessee, Illinois State, Troy, Arkansas, Western Carolina, Middle Tennessee, and Memphis. He has not taken any official visits as of yet, but plans to do so in the near future.
