Offers: Besides Washington, Jones had offers from schools like Ohio State, Oregon, Utah, BYU and Boise State.
Why Washington: "I loved the staff there, especially coach (Bush) Hamdan and I loved the city and campus when I came up to visit. Washington believed in me and what I could do and I wanted to be part of what they are building there."
Analysis: "We’ve always been high on Jones’ potential but it wasn’t until the Army Bowl that it really took off. He’s always had the athleticism and size to be a good receiver, but we wanted to see better performances against top tier defenders and in San Antonio, he flashed all week, showing great route running, willingness to battle for the ball, separation from the secondary and excellent pass-catching ability." - Brandon Huffman
Position Projection: Jones will play wide receiver for Washington and with his size, speed and hands, he's a perfect addition to an offense that features a lot of speed, but very little in the way of size.
2017 Season Projection: The Huskies needed a big receiver who could go up and get the ball in traffic and Jones fits that bill perfectly. He will be given every opportunity to find his way onto the field this fall and if he lives up to his billing, you can expect him to be one of their top redzone targets.
