"I think I did pretty good my junior year," Jones said. "I did not have a lot of interceptions but I had a lot of breakups and tackles."

What are his strengths at corner?

"I use my long arms to break up passes and get interceptions. I need to keep working on my speed and get it down a little bit more."

This offseason he concentrated on sharpening a few skills.

"I worked on my hands and catching the ball and my footwork."

Scooter Jones has a big senior goal.

"I want to lead the state in interceptions. I have two right now. I want to get ten more."

Who are some of the colleges he is keeping an eye on?

"A lot of junior colleges are looking at me. I have not gotten my name out yet. I want to start hearing from OM and MSU. Ole Miss is a good school and MSU had the number one CB in the nation come out last year. I want to fit in for him."
