D.J. Jones Continues To Open Coaches' Eyes

At 6'1 296 pounds D.J. Jones of Wren High School shouldn't be able to do the things he's able to do on the football field. A 2013 defensive tackle prospect, Jones is playing 7on7 with the Hurricanes as a wide receiver. Come inside as we bring you a quick update with the freakish athlete who we expect to pick up a lot more offers once the season starts as he currently holds 3 offers.

D.J. Jones Profile

The Wren Hurricanes host one of the state's most intriguing prospects in the 2013 recruiting class in defensive tackle D.J. Jones. Last season he played for Carolina High School but makes the leap in classification with hopes of putting up similar mind boggling numbers to last season. With three offers already in hand there are a number of schools who will be waiting to see Jones in action early in his senior season before offering.

In fact the 6'1 296 pound prospect has been working hard on showcasing his talents for coaches throughout the off season. He's currently playing 7 on 7 with the Hurricanes...as a wide receiver.

"Yes sir I am playing wide receiver in 7 on 7's now."

His athleticism has caught the eye of one coaching staff where he and the Hurricanes participated recently.

"Vanderbilt is on me pretty good now because I played well during the 7 on 7 tournament we were in there."

His athleticism is apparent because although he's a defensive tackle prospect Jones recently ran a 4.89 second 40 yard dash at Appalachian State and checks in at 296 pounds.

Even though he holds 3 offers currently from Appalachian State, Newberry College, and UNC Charlotte we expect more schools to come see him early on and add to his offer list. Jones is vastly underrated in our opinion but with his junior film starting to make the rounds and if he starts out strong in his senior season there will be plenty of others to join the mix.
