Jones holds WFU offer

Donovahn Jones, who's being recruited at quarterback, defensive back, and wide receiver, now has 19 Division 1 offers. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound athlete out of Dutchtown High School in Henry County, Georgia, was offered by Wake Forest during the spring evaluation period. At this point, he unsure of what position the Deacon staff likes him at, just that they're impressed with what they've seen.

"The [Wake Forest] offer came early about three weeks into spring ball," said Donovahn Jones. "Coach (Jason) Galt let me know I had the offer. He said they love the fact I make so many plays with my feet. I think they're just recruiting me as an athlete."

The challenge for Wake Forest is getting Jones on campus before summer's end. He's made a cross-country visit to Minnesota, one of his first offers, and has a week planned with visits to Missouri, Arkansas, and Arkansas State.

"I'm open right now," he said, " but I'd like to narrow my schools down to seven or eight before school starts. I'm looking at my relationship with the coaching staff, a place I'll be comfortable living, and somewhere close where my parents can make it to the games."

Jones played both safety and cornerback as a sophomore for the Dutchtown Bulldogs. He then moved over to quarterback in his junior year and put up some big numbers and was named All-Region 3-AAAA.

"I had close to 1700 total yards," said Jones. "Out of the Wing T (offense), I had almost 1000 passing yards and nearly 700 rushing yards. This year I'm going to play more wide receiver and more defense. I kind of like the idea of plating offense [in college], but it's not going to play a big factor in my decision."

In March, Jones was named to the All-Combine at a Nike Sparq event in Atlanta from over 1500 competitors. He had a 4.69 forty, a 4.12 shuttle, a 35.3 vertical jump, and a Sparq score of 95.25.
