Westland John Glenn (Mich.) wide receiver Da'Mario Jones quickly accepts a Michigan offer.

"I just accepted a full ride scholarship to [Michigan]," Da'Mario Jones reported to Fox Sports NEXT.

The 6'2, 190-lb wide receiver from Westland John Glenn, a three-star prospect previously committed to Central Michigan picked up an offer from the Wolverines today and made it official.

"Actually, I was in my school library, and Coach Borges called and I picked up the phone and he said they gave me a full ride. I talked it over with my parents and we felt it was the best thing for me to do. I'm officially decommitted from Central Michigan."

Jones camped at Michigan, went to the BBQ at the Big House, and several games this year, but he says the relationship with the school began much earlier than that.

"Michigan is where it all started. They influenced me into playing, so it wasn't hard to the make decision based off that. We visited several times and I liked the area, the city is close to home, and everything's right."

Jones joins Jaron Dukes and C'Sonte York as the receivers in this class, and he believes he will have a chance to compete early.

"They said I can come in as freshman and be equal. No one will outwork me. I'm ready to compete and fight for a starting position."

After a process which included some twists, turns and uncertainty, Jones is happy it is over.

"Now that the recruiting process is over, I can sit back, relax, and get ready to be playing for them next year. It's great the opportunity I'm presented with, getting to play at one of the best schools in the country and I'm going to make the best of it. There's nothing like the Big House."
