Georgia QB Picks up 1st Offer

Marietta quarterback <b>Brandon Jones</b> has picked up his first offer, and he names a Top 5 as well.

"Connecticut has offered me a scholarship. My top 5 is Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama and Connecticut. I don't have a leader right now," Brandon Jones said.

What stands out about the 5 schools on his list?

Florida: "They are very interested in me and I like Coach Zook's offense a lot."

Tennessee: "I like the environment up there. It just seems like a football town."

Auburn: "I went to A-Day, and I met coach Tuberville. Ever since I was little, I have always liked Auburn."

Alabama: "I went to their Junior Day. Coach Shula really got me when he said he would teach us everything we needed to know at practice, but once we were in the game the ball was in your hands and you had to do it."

Connecticut: "Coach Edsall and Coach Marino are both really cool. The weather is something I'd have to get used to, but I want to visit up there and try it out."

What is most important to Brandon in picking the school of his choice?

"Team chemistry and the type of offense ran. I want a coach I can learn the most from and that fits me."

Might distance have play a factor in the end?

"I don't think so. My mom might be one to get upset about me leaving, but my dad is a coach for the Georgia Force so she's used to him being gone all the time like I would be."

Will Jones be camping anywhere this summer?

"I'm not scheduled to go to any camps because I'm busy with my team. My school is trying to get a lot done this summer because we didn't get enough time to adjust after we got a new offensive coordinator last year. I also missed the spring due to baseball so I have to make up for that."
