Davon Jones and R.J. Hollis makes most out of JUCO experience

Former Phoenix (Az.) Mountain Pointe stars Davon Jones and R.J. Hollis both were forced to go the junior college route but both made the most of their opportunity and will sign with division-one programs.

Jones (6-2 205) was a 2,000 yard rusher as a senior for the Pride but failed to qualify academically. He signed with Glendale Community College and after a successful freshman year was offered by Utah State. After rushing for over 100 yards in his sophomore opener, Jones tore his ACL and medically redshirted. 

In 2012, Jones moved to defense, learning the safety spot quickly, making 21 tackles, 6 TFLs while breaking up 3 passes.

Jones has confirmed that he has committed to Mississippi Valley State and will sign with the HBCU program this week.

Hollis, a 6-4 offensive tackle, was not offered out of high school and enrolled at Scottsdale Community College.

As a full qualifier, Hollis started at right tackle and started to gain attention from FBS programs after signing day. He received offers from Hawaii and Cincinnati and he tells FoxSportsNext that he has made his choice.

He says, "I committed to Hawaii, mainly because I felt it was the right place for me."
