"I was just talking with my dad tonight and talking about how much I liked the program and he was like 'why don't you just do it' and I was like 'yeah, I'm ready to commit'," an excited Jones told Dawgman.com. "I called coach (Mike) Cox first and told him and he told me I should call Sark and when I did, he told me I had made his whole weekend."
Jones is a gifted receiver, possessing good size and speed and said he's looking forward to being a Husky for several reasons.
"I've been in Washington my whole life and I wanted to play here in front of my family," Jones said. "I also just liked the direction of the program because it's on the rise and I have really bonded well with the coaches."
As a junior last fall, Jones helped lead Graham-Kapowsin to the playoffs by posting 40 receptions for 600 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Jones chose Washington over offers from Idaho and Washington State and heavy interest from Oregon, Oregon State and Boise State.
He said he plans to attend Washington's 'Rising Stars' camp while also attending Oregon and Oregon State's camps.
"I just like to get out and compete," Jones said. "I want to play for Washington and be a Dawg, so it's just about going down and competing against other top players."
Jones becomes the 11th known commitment to Washington's recruiting class joining Skyline DE Connor Cree, Dorsey (Los Angeles) LB Matthew Lyons, Stanwood (Wa.) OL Dexter Charles, Archbishop Murphy (Everett) DE Taniela Tupou, Long Beach (Ca.) Poly CB Kameron Jackson, Walnut (Ca.) DE Aubrey Coleman, Paramount (Ca.) OL/DL Maataua Brown, Norwalk (Ca.) FB Elijhaa Penny, Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) S Evan Zeger and Central East (Fresno) RB Brendon Bigelow as Husky commits.
