At 6-1 and 160 pounds, Jones officially visited the Broncos on January 10th and committed to coach Cordelli on the 14th. What made the decision such a quick one?
"I really liked Western Michigan on my visit," said Jones. "Coach Cordelli is really nice and has really helped me a lot in my recruitment. I felt very comfortable there so I decided to commit and am happy with my decision."
Jones has impressive stats as a senior. He ended the season with an 83% touchback percentage on kickoffs that Bronco fans will surely be pleased to hear. He converted on 54/56 PATs and punted for a 40 yard average.
Jones is being visited in-home this week by coach Darnell and he talked about his visit to Western.
"I thought it was very nice and the school was great," he said. "The facilities were very impressive."
Jones, who was hosted by fellow Floridian Justin LeMay, feels he can some in and compete for playing time early.
"My goal is to come in and play early," he said. If I redshirt fine but I plan to compete for playing time early."
Jones also participates in soccer and track where he runs the 100, 200, 4x100 and long jump. He plans to study Business or Engineering and is a full academic qualifier with a 2.6 core GPA and 1150 SAT.
Jones also considered UMass, Eastern Kentucky and Carson Newman.
