The season started out with a bang for Jones who in just one half of action ran for 195 yards and 3 touchdowns against Big Spring to get things off to a big start and the roll continued all season. In addition to starring on the gridiron for Denison, Jones is also a member of the Yellow Jackets basketball and track squads.
"I think my biggest strength is my combination of vision and power, I always seem to get into space with the help of my line and I am always moving forward," said Jones who says he wants to work on his breakaway speed this off-season.
Jones says he's got no favorites right now but Texas with an offer could move up the charts, "I'm waiting on an offer from Texas and if they offered I'd have to seriously consider committing," said the Denison junior who holds offers from Texas Tech, Oregon and Kansas. D.J. is also getting serious interest from Baylor, Texas and Oklahoma.
This summer D.J. says he probably won't hit the camp circuit but he's planning on attending the Scout.com Combine in Dallas along with playing some seven on seven for Denison. Jones also doesn't plan on dragging the recruiting process out for too long, "I'd like to decide before the start of the season, I want my total focus on my senior year," replied the Denison star. After going 12-1 and losing to eventual state champions in the third round of the playoffs D.J.'s focus is on going all the way, "I want to try and go out with a state title this year, we've got all the tools and we got the experience last year."
