The 6-4, 200 pounder from Anchor Bay High School in New Baltimore MI (north of Detroit on Lake St. Clair) had an impressive performance at linebacker on Tuesday of the Michigan Camp this summer. GBW hooked up with Jones to talk a little about recruiting.
How was your Michigan camping experience?
“It was good. A lot of good competition. The coaches told me that they were going to give me season tickets and keep looking at me.”
Did they talk to you about what position that they like you for?
Your dad told me you did pretty well at the Michigan State camp as well. tell me about that camp experience.
“There were a lot of kids. There were some good athletes there.”
What were those coaches saying to you?
“They said the same thing. They like me and I can come down whenever I want.”
Did they say what position they like you for?
“They didn’t really say.”
Aside from Michigan and Michigan State, who are some of the other schools that you are hearing from?
“Eastern (Michigan) and Central (Michigan).”
Any out of state schools?
“Georgia sent me some mail but that’s about it.”
You got any other plans to make it out to any other schools or camps before your school year starts or is that pretty much it?
“Northwestern on the 30th of July.”
Has Northwestern been on you pretty hard so far?
“A little bit, not that much.”
You’ve been through for a little bit now and we know the schools that are looking at you, but who are some of the schools that you like?
“I just like whoever will be paying for school.”
You have a lot of schools that are going to be coming your way come fall time, but a lot of them want you to come down and visit their schools. Have you sat and thought about when you are going to be trying to make it to the various schools, like what games you are going to try and go to and things like that?
“Not yet. I will eventually.”
So tell me this, have any of these schools offered you a scholarship yet?
“No not yet.”
Now let’s assume for the sake of argument that they do you offer you scholarships, are you trying to make an early decision, are you trying to wait until your senior year; have you thought about that at all?
“I’ll probably just wait until my senior year or right before my senior year.”
So when you do get ready to sit down and make that choice; I know that is a long way away, but when you get ready to sit down and make it, what are going to be the most significant factors in that choice?
“The coaches, and how the program is moving.”
