Jones Looking For First Offer
Despite putting up great numbers for the first three games of the 2010 season, the Houston Eisenhower football team, has not managed to pull in a first win. On top of that, the team leader and quarterback James Jones has contributed to those big numbers and is seeking a first on the personal side as well. That is, his first scholarship offer. "I have a few schools looking at me, but I do not have an offer," Jones said after Week 2 match up against Beaumont Westbrook. "Baylor, Houston, SMU and Nevada are the main ones right now. We'll just have to see what happens." For now, the 5-foot-9, 175-pound Jones will just keep doing what he does best, making plays. The Eisenhower team is 0-3, but based on the numbers, Jones has kept a lot of these contests competitive. In the recent loss to Westbrook, Jones came out in the second half on a mission. He finished the game with 95 yards passing and 149 yards rushing, scoring twice. On the year, Jones has a total of 649 yards and seven touchdowns. According to Jones, most of the programs want to use him as a slot receiver, but one program will allow him to stay as a signal caller. "Navy said that I could stay at quarterback to run the option," Jones said. "That is OK for me. I'll play whatever position I'm asked to play." Scout's Brief: Jones has a just as good a first step as any other top players in the city. He is a little on the small size, but his ability to make plays could be a great tool in marketing his skills. When he gets into the open field, his speed elusiveness makes it tough on defenders to take him down. On the college level, he could work well as a slot wide receiver and would be great on special teams as a return specialist. Get him about 10-12 touches a game and he is money.
