BIO: A Scout.com three-star prospect, Juwuan Jones totaled 136 tackles, including 15 for a loss as a senior. He also registered four sacks, a forced fumble, an interception, had a fumble recovery and four QB hurries. He was selected All-State, All-Region and All-County.
RECRUITMENT: Jones also had offers from Wisconsin, Southern Mississippi, Air Force, Tulane, Troy, Navy, Mercer, Ball State, Army, Miami of Ohio and Georgia Southern among others.
WHY WKU: An opening in the WKU depth chart at linebacker will provide Jones a chance to compete for playing time as a rookie.
EVALUATION: Jones is a physical defender that attacks the ball. He's displayed the ability to be effective rushing the quarterback, playing the run game and dropping back in pass coverage.
BOTTOM LINE: An early commit in the 2017 class, Jones remained committed to WKU during the coaching changes and that should prove to be a smart move for the underrated linebacker.
